Again, this error is not in my friend's earlier edition.
John Levine
This book is indispensable for any student of quantitative subjects like Math or Econ or Physics.
Satya Shodhak
The special indefinite integral tables are especially useful.

The content of this book seems to be good, but my problem is that the kindle version has no table of contents, no index and no search function. It is therefore impossible to quickly find the section that you want or the topic you want - you have to page through the entire book until something useful appears. This is a fatal flaw for a reference book.

I am a physicist and work in a wide range of fields from nuclear to plasma to particle accelerators. I have used the Schaum's Mathematical Handbook for years (decades actually). It provides an excellent reference of handy formulas all in one spot. Sure I have bigger and nicer tables of integrals, but they are limited to tables of integrals and generally most everything I need to look up is in this guide. With modern computers and calculators the tables are probably anarchistic (I personally have never used them, ever!).

I got the Kindle version so I could have access to the book when traveling. In general the Kindle version is acceptable, but there are a number of problems with it. First, at least on the PC Kindle application the formulas are formatted oddly. In particular they are aligned to the bottom of the line not the center. This is just not the way formulas are displayed and makes them much harder to read. Spacing is often missing in aligned formulas. For example coordinate transforms. Typically space is added to align the equal signs for the different coordinates. In general these are missing, and often formulas are squashed against the braces. All of this makes them harder to read. Having the formulas formatted oddly will also contribute to errors, as the formulas mostly just do not look right, and the base line alignment can make formals with complex subscript/superscripts difficult to interpret.

Some of the formulas are encoded as text and some (generally the more complex ones) are encoded as graphics. This works OK as long as you don't change the font size. If you do the alignment falls apart, and different parts of a single formal may end up with different size fonts.

This is a pretty helpful Schaum's outline, in that most of the mathematical tables and formulas that an undergraduate math student would need are included. Material from geometry, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods, special functions and transforms, and probability and statistics are included. Plus, there are some examples of how to perform some types of calculations. There is even a section on calculating compound interest and the value of an annuity for those students of financial mathematics. Also, it is much easier than lugging around the infamous 2600 page "CRC Handbook of Mathematics and Physics." Of course, there are tradeoffs. This book has mathematical tables and formulas only, there are no physics equations.

Generally, if you are an undergraduate student in math or science, your required textbook will have all of the equations and tables that your instructor would expect you to have committed to memory for exams. Thus I am not sure if it is worth the extra cost to buy this book too. I think this book would be most helpful for someone who is out of school who needs their undergraduate mathematics tables and formulas condensed and in one portable book that can be taken to work and stored at the office, rather than carrying around the dozen or so math texts you used during your undergraduate career. It would also be helpful for someone going to graduate school in math, physics, or engineering who is expected to already know this material and therefore needs a handy reference.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First of all, the last 36 pages, 18 sheets, plus 6 blank sheets, were bound in the book backwards. After page 254 come 6 blank sheets, then the last page of the index, then the rest of the book from page 289 down to page 255, backwards.

As far as the content goes, I noticed on page 207, chapter 38 "infinite products", that the product formula for sin x is in error: it has the first factor as (1-(x^2/x^2)) instead of (1-(x^2/pi^2)). (Noticed because this makes the entire product zero). This is not the case in my friend's earlier edition which has the correct formula. So they introduced errors in the upgrade to the third edition.

Also, on page 141 in the section on reversion of power series, they use capital C_i for both series' coefficients instead of, correctly, c_i for one series and C_i for its inverse. Again, this error is not in my friend's earlier edition.

What happened? I hate to think people will be using this to help design airplanes. Wouldn't it be great if Amazon or McGraw Hill (or whoever owns the Schaum's brand now) were to fix this. Or at least respond.

Also, why spend pages and ink on log tables, or tables of sines, e^x, etc. This is 2012, I would think every potential user of this has access to a pocket calculator.

Thanks for reading this.

Are you an enginner that has not used any uper level math for a long time? Are you a student that wants book packed wrh all the math you will need? This is the book for you! The math in this book goes from trig to diff Eq to bessel tables and then some.
