Schaum's Outlines-Problem Solved.
This book can be used in the classroom or as an in-depth self-study guide. Its unique programmed approach patiently presents the mathematics in a step-by-step fashion together with a wealth of worked examples and exercises. It also contains quizzes, learning outcomes, and "Can You?" checklists that guide readers through each topic and reinforce learning and comprehension.
This text combines the logical approach of a mathematical subject with the intuitive approach of engineering and physical topics. Applications include kinematics, mechanics, and electromagnetic theory. Includes exercises and answers. 1955 edition.
This fully revised and thoroughly updated second edition takes into account the constructive suggestions received from teachers and students alike on the first edition. A new chapter on Generalized Coordinate System has been added to make the book complete. Some more examples have been provided to highlight the applicability of vectors in physics and engineering. The answers to all the end-of-chapter exercises have been given in this edition to enhance the utility of the book. Beginning with the basic concepts of vector methods and various operations of vector-valued functions such as continuity, differentiability, and integrability, the three fundamental differential operators-gradient, divergence, and curl-are fully explored. The text then moves on to provide the essentials of differential geometry with particular reference to curvature and torsion, and Serret-Frenet equations. The chapter on mechanics demonstrates the strength of vectors in tackling physical problems. The book concludes with a new chapter on notions of vectors in the generalized coordinate system. This book is primarily intended for use by undergraduate students of mathematics and science for a course in vector analysis. It will also be useful to engineering students, as part of a course in engineering mathematics, where they are introduced to vector algebra, so essential for assimilating a better understanding of the physical aspects of the theory.
Prize-winning study traces the rise of the vector concept from the discovery of complex numbers through the systems of hypercomplex numbers to the final acceptance around 1910 of the modern system of vector analysis.
Concise, readable text ranges from definition of vectors and discussion of algebraic operations on vectors to the concept of tensor and algebraic operations on tensors. Worked-out problems and solutions. 1968 edition.
The first edition of this book sold more than 100,000 copies—and this new edition will show you why! Schaum’s Outline of Discrete Mathematics shows you step by step how to solve the kind of problems you’re going to find on your exams. And this new edition features all the latest applications of discrete mathematics to computer science! This guide can be used as a supplement, to reinforce and strengthen the work you do with your class text. (It works well with virtually any discrete mathematics textbook.) But it is so comprehensive that it can even be used alone as a text in discrete mathematics or as independent study tool!
