5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the math undergrad August 18, 2001
Format:Hardcover
We used this text in an introductory math for engineers course that I took for fun (I can see the smirk on your face already :) Anyway, the book integrates different parts of applied mathematics very well, particularly drilling into your head the wonderful properties of linearity, and how linear algebra in general makes life much simpler. The only (minor) drawback to this book I would say is it's "lack of color", i.e., this is not a book you buy for the pictures. The diagrams are black and white, and very simple. Kreyszig's book is much more visually appealing, but does not have the mathematical depth that Greenberg can get across. If you are more of a visual learner (as I actually am), you may prefer Kreyszig, as he puts important results/theorems in colored boxes, and his style is more casual than Greenberg. It is not hard to see why mathematicians (including several professors I know) prefer Greenberg, as his presentation is more crisp, and it definitely flows. Some of the material requires deep thought, but is well worth the effort. His material on PDEs (mostly 2nd order linear equations) is very engaging, and expertly written. You get a nice overview of the subject (a branch of mathematics highly applicable in today's world), but he doesn't get bogged down in unnecessary detail. My verdict is this: if you want a reference book to refer to from time to time, Kreyszig may be better. However, if you want a text to learn the material from, I would definitely go with Greenberg. If you have the money, get both titles, they complement each other well. But if you can only afford one, get Greenberg.

Format:Hardcover
This book is the best to appear in the field of Advanced Engineering Math. True to its title, the book is miles ahead of Kreyzig, Wylie et al. in its presentation of fundamental concepts from an Engineering viewpoint. Reading it one enjoys the beauty and the link between linear algebra, vector algebra, matrix algebra and (system of) partial differntial equations. Transforms (Fourier, Laplace)have also been lucidly explained. Frankly, I have fallen in love with it.
Dr Greenberg...Thank you for providing us with a classic.
Other titles for the applied Engineer's shelf: 1. PDEs for Scientists and Engineers - Farlow 2. Advanced Calculus for Applications - Hildebrand 3. Partial Differential Equations - L.E.Evans 4. Elements of PDEs - Sneddon 5. ODEs - Boyce and DiPrima (look at Strum-Liouville explanation - its great!)

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST math book I have ever read August 5, 2003
Format:Hardcover
Amoung the dozons of math books out there that are pure (garbage), written by math professors for math professors, this is one of those rare shining gems that comes along every once in a decade, that was written with a student in mind. It is clear, concise, and easy to follow. It flows increadibly well, and in an organized manner. You can tell that this book was planned out, and not just written by some professor in a few weeks just to meet his writting obligations. Also this book covers EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything. It is a pure pleasure to read. If you have trouble understanding math, because your using a (poor) book written by a (...) professor, then BUY this book. Its a little pricey, but trust me it is worth every cent. The price of the book is much less then the price to repeat a math course. Thanks a million Greenberg.

Format:Hardcover
This is one of those rare "readable" mathematics textbooks: all ideas and concepts become self-evident by just reading the text. It is NOT as comprehensive as, say Wylie and Barrett, or Kreyzig, but a lot more useful for learning/teaching. Most worked-out problems analyze physical situations rather than abstractions making life a great deal easier for a student as well as teacher. Super-good introduction to Fourier transforms, linear algebra, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professor said this one was "The Best" January 6, 2003
Format:Hardcover
We used this text in the mathematics course I had to take as a graduate level mechanical engineering student (not at the University where the author teaches). I liked the author of this text's "prose," that is, the way he described and expressed things, so much so that I looked forward to reading on my own some of the chapters that were not covered in the course. The professor we had was exuberant about this text, pausing from time to time to say things like, "What the author has done here to explain such-and-such is simply marvelous." He also commented to me personally, when I asked him about some of the other Adv. Engineering texts (which I also have), that this text is the "best," especially in the partial differential equations area. I've noticed working with it since then that this engineering math text alone has some important derivations that clear away any basis for confusion or doubt. This was the case, for example, with its explanation of how the Fourier Transform may be derived. Of all my math books, I really treasure this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book December 6, 2011
Format:Hardcover
I am an engineer and I came across Greenberg's book after I graduated and pursued postgraduate studies. I wasn't satisfied with the depth mathematics were covered during my studies, in the sense that when I bumped into a math problem, (say differential equations) the only connection to it was the solution that was obtained by reffering to an ODE book; the solution or any hint to the solution did not come natural. I believe this is a common problem with engineers; if a great depth is pursued in every subject the engineer deals with (physics, chemistry, materials, statistics, etc.) he/she will never graduate!

I had purchased or found in the library other books on advanced mathematics, but they were either too mathematical (symbolic), meaning you had to study 100 pages to get a result you needed, or too practical, written in a cookbook manner, i.e. good as a manual but not good in providing the essence of the subject.

So I caught myself reading and borrowing Greenberg's book many times from the library (by the way this is the best way to choose which book to buy among many options). This led me to buy it.

Sorry for the lengthy "autobiography", but this was to clarify my "point" in my point of view, so that my "view" can be put to the appropriate frame.

I surely haven't regret buying Greenberg's book. The book proceeds to a satisfactory depth (from the engineer's point of view), it provides proofs to many theorems, it is lucid, explanatory, ideal for self study, and presents not only practical results, but also explains clearly essential mathematical concepts, which means that it stimulates the readers interest in mathematics. The examples given and the exercises are related to engineering concepts wherever this is possible.
