**Mathematics for Physics: A Guided Tour for Graduate Students**

by Michael Stone, Paul Goldbart

**Publisher**: Cambridge University Press 2009**ISBN/ASIN**: 0521854032**Number of pages**: 919

**Description**:

An engagingly-written account of mathematical tools and ideas, this book provides a graduate-level introduction to the mathematics used in research in physics. The first half of the book focuses on the traditional mathematical methods of physics - differential and integral equations, Fourier series and the calculus of variations. The second half contains an introduction to more advanced subjects, including differential geometry, topology and complex variables.
