## Synopsis

Mathematical Methods in Physics Partial Differential Equations, Fourier Series, and Special Functions by Victor Henner, Tatyana Belozerova, Kyle Forinash

This book is a text on partial differential equations (PDEs) of mathematical physics and boundary value problems, trigonometric Fourier series, and special functions. This is the core content of many courses in the fields of engineering, physics, mathematics, and applied mathematics. The accompanying software provides a laboratory environment that allows the user to generate and model different physical situations and learn by experimentation. From this standpoint, the book along with the software can also be used as a reference book on PDEs, Fourier series and special functions for students and professionals alike.

## Reviews

In comparison with typical introductions to partial differential equations, the book and attached software are significantly more detailed. It explains various examples of physical problems and solves related partial differential equations under different types of boundary conditions. The authors do more with special functions and carry out examples of Fourier analysis using these functions. The book, along with the software, can also be considered as a reference book on PDEs, Fourier series and some of the special functions for students and professionals. As a text, this book can be used in an advanced course on mathematical physics (or related courses) for advanced students of engineering, physics, mathematics, and applied mathematics. -Soheila Emamyari and Mehdi Hassani, MAA Reviews, November 2009 [Henner, Forinash, and Belozerova] address the main topics of many courses in mathematical physics within the fields of engineering, physics, mathematics, and applied mathematics. The texbook and accompanying software are significantly more detailed than typical introductions to partial differential equations, they say, and provide examples on setting up physical problems as mathematical ones, solving partial differential equations under different types of boundary conditions, working with special functions, and carrying out a Fourier analysis using these functions. The software provides a simple interface, and does not require students to learn a programming language. -Book News Inc., September 2009

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Lovereading has all the new books and also suggestions for 'similar' authors whilst waiting for your favourites new books.

Carol Peace

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.

Pam Woodburn

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
