Introduction to Mathematical Physics

A comprehensive survey of all the mathematical methods that should be available to graduate students in physics. In addition to the usual topics of analysis, such as infinite series, functions of a complex variable and some differential equations as well as linear vector spaces, this book includes a more extensive discussion of group theory than can be found in other current textbooks. The main feature of this textbook is its extensive treatment of geometrical methods as applied to physics. With its introduction of differentiable manifolds and a discussion of vectors and forms on such manifolds as part of a first-year graduate course in mathematical methods, the text allows students to grasp at an early stage the contemporary literature on dynamical systems, solitons and related topological solutions to field equations, gauge theories, gravitational theory, and even string theory. Free solutions manual available for lecturers at www.wiley-vch.de/supplements/.

The Six Core Theories of Modern Physics

""The Six Core Theories of Modern Physics" is a useful and amazingly compact compendium of the central equations and concepts of modern physics, treating broad areas while stressing their underlying unity. It stands as an ideal summary of all that a beginning graduate student should have learned, and that other scientists with a physics background will want to recall." -- Dr. Daniel Gardner, Cornell University Medical College Charles Stevens, a prominent neurobiologist who originally trained as a biophysicist (with George Uhlenbeck and Mark Kac), wrote this book almost by accident. Each summer he found himself reviewing key areas of physics that he had once known and understood well, for use in his present biological research. Since there was no book, he created his own set of notes, which formed the basis for this brief, clear, and self-contained summary of the basic theoretical structures of classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, statistical physics, special relativity, and quantum field theory. "The Six Core Theories of Modern Physics" can be used by advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students as a supplement to the standard texts or for an uncluttered, succinct review of the key areas. Professionals in such quantitative sciences as chemistry, engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, and biophysics who need to brush up on the essentials of a particular area will find most of the required background material, including the mathematics.

يتناول هذا المؤلف من جديد ـ بشكل أكثر دقة وتصميماً ـ مادة مُدرَّسة بجامعة بيار وماري كوري على مستوى البكالريوس، وهو يفترض معرفة العناصر الأساسية من الطوبولوجيا العامة والتكامل الحسابي والتفاضلي. يتعرض الجزء الأول من الكتاب (الفصول 1-7) إلى جوانب (مجردة) من التحليل الدالي، أما الجزء الثاني من المادة (الفصول 8-10) فيتعلق بدراسة فضاءات دالية (ملموسة) مستعملة في نظرية المعادلات التفاضلية الجزئية، تبين كيف يمكن لمبرهنات وجود(مجردة) أن تسهم في حل معادلات تفاضلية جزئية. هناك ارتباط وثيق بين هذين الفرعين من التحليل: تاريخياً، تطور التحليل الدالي(المجرد) ليجيب عن أسئلة أثيرت عند حل المعادلات التفاضلية الجزئية، وفي المقابل أدى تطور التحليل الدالي (المجرد) إلى تحفيز كبير لنظرية المعادلات التفاضلية الجزئية. سيكون هذا الكتاب مفيداً لكل من الطلبة المهتمين بالرياضيات البحثية، وكذا أولئك المهتمين بالتوجه نحو الرياضيات التطبيقية. العبيكان للنشر
