Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book will appeal primarily to engineers, scientists, and analysts who use mathematics as an application tool for practical problems. Although it will have less appeal for mathematicians, sections of this book may provide them with helpful preludes to more rigorous presentations.

The text provides a reasonably comprehensive introduction to key mathematical topics of interest to engineers and scientists including, ODEs, Series Methods, Laplace Transforms, Matrices, Vector Algebra, Fourier Series, PDEs, Numerical Methods, Complex Variables, and Wavelets.

The book's primary strength is its gentle presentation of potentially difficult topics using a well-organized step-by-step approach with lots of solved in-text examples, and it ties it's presentations to current software technology. Although computer technology plays an increasingly important role in the solution of real problems by subject matter experts, many mathematical presentations often ignore or minimize this importance. Here applications are integrated with both analytical and technology solutions using, primarily, Maple but also addressing Matlab and even Excel. The appropriate Maple commands are discussed and explained in the text and an Appendix has a short overview of Maple. This is much more appropriate than leaving technology solutions to be studied separately. The book also includes material of contemporary importance, e.g., wavelets not normally found in similar works.

The book's primary weakness is its lack of fully worked solutions to problem sets. Only solutions to even number problems are provided, and even here not all even number problems are provided with answers. Solutions only provide the final answers not the steps necessary to obtain the answers.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Palle E T Jorgensen VINE VOICE on March 15, 2008
Format: Hardcover
For many math departments around the country, a good part of course offerings consists of service courses for engineering. As a result, there are lots of textbooks around written to fit a particular niece. And the result is often a fairly narrow focus.
This lovely book is refreshing in its broad appeal: advanced engineering mathematics, engineering analysis, or applied mathematics. Designed for engineering students, it is well balanced and useful for its primary mission as well as for students in a related variety of mid-to upper level undergraduate courses; even for math majors.
Although its stated target audience is upper-level undergraduate students or first-year graduates, it may work well as a supplementary text in differential equations, in transform theory, and in applied mathematics, more generally.
Selections from the contents: Reals and complex, differential equations (both ordinary (ODEs) and partial (PDEs)), transforms (including Fourier and wavelets), matrix theory and linear algebra, numerical methods.
Special features in the new edition: Focuses on real-world problems; Incorporates MapleRG throughout, with some applications of ExcelRG and MATLABRG. includes Review solutions of ordinary differential equations + a new chapter on wavelets and a new section on Fourier Transforms.
