Mathematical methods for physicists. 5th ed. (English) Zbl 0970.00005
Orlando, FL: Academic Press. xiv, 1112 p. (2001).
In comparison with the edition from 1966 of the first author alone (Zbl 0135.42304) all chapters are substantially extended and there are added two new chapters, 4: Group Theory, 18: Nonlinear Methods and Chaos, and two Appendices, 1: Real Zeros of a Function, 2: Gaussian Quadrature (the old chapters 2 and 3 are gathered up).
The extensions with respect to the 4th edition concern tensors in Riemannian geometry, the method of steepest descent, characteristics for partial differential equations, and nonlinearities.
