ab: The book under review presents an extensive reference on mathematical
topics used in engineering and other mechanical sciences. The methods
are presented without explanations, but with many explanatory examples
plus additional (unsolved) practice problems. As such, it is of great
value for all mathematics instructors who teach university level
courses for engineering students. The topics covered are linear
ordinary differential equations with various solving methods, vector
calculus, complex numbers and functions, partial differential equations
of various types often encountered in engineering, special functions,
basic matrix algebra with relation to systems of linear equations and
basic methods in variational calculus.
