for Scientists and Engineers

University of California, Davis

"McQuarrie
is both an experienced textbook author and a distinguished theoretical chemist, and he has used his twin talents to produce an outstanding book...
There is more than enough material for a rigorous two-semester course, but it
could be selectively covered in a single semester. In either case the
students will acquire an excellent reference text. I will place it on my
bookshelf where I can easily reach it. I am sure I will refer to it
often."

*--**Journal of Chemical Education*

"This
is a beautifully produced book...that makes the physical act of reading
effortless and pleasurable. McQuarrie has matched this typographic clarity
with a writing style that is equally inviting: informal, straightforward
and direct, altogether calm and unimposing...As I went through this book, in
every chapter, not only could I see myself teaching out of this book, I found
myself wanting to. Seldom does a book motivate me in that way, and I think
students, too, will be drawn in by its clear and accessible approach to some of
the most essential mathematical ideas used by scientists."

*--American
Journal of Physics, November 2004 *

"The
coverage is extensive, and the book is immensely readable...all of McQuarrie's
writing is notable for its lucidity. This is a book of great authority and
value. Few chemists whose work has a mathematical flavor will come across
a more valuable publication this year."

*--The
Chemical Educator, Vol. 9, No. 1, 2004*

"McQuarrie is Arfken done
right."

*--***Jerome Percus, New York University**

"McQuarrie's
*Mathematical Methods for Scientists and Engineers* is a
well-written, carefully conceived panorama of an extensive mathematical landscape. From asymptotic analysis to linear algebra to partial
differential equations and complex variables, McQuarrie provides relevant
background, physical and mathematical intuition and motivation, and just
the right dose of mathematical rigor to get the ideas across effectively.
The large collection of examples and exercises will prove indispensable
for teaching and learning the material."

*--***Dennis
DeTurck, University of Pennsylvania

"Written for students with a background in calculus, this text introduces non-elementary functions, discusses complex numbers and properties of functions of complex variables, applies vector notation to problems in analytic geometry, and discusses vector calculus. Some 3,000 chapter problems are included, along with many MATLAB commands."

From
best-selling author Donald McQuarrie comes his newest text, ** Mathematical
Methods for Scientists and Engineers.** Intended for
upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in chemistry, physics, math and
engineering, this book will also become a must-have for the personal library of all
advanced students in the physical sciences. Comprised of more than 2000
problems and 700 worked examples that detail every single step, this text is exceptionally well
adapted for self study as well as for course use.
Famous for his clear writing, careful pedagogy, and wonderful problems
and examples, McQuarrie has crafted yet another tour de force. Download a sample chapter and see for yourself what this book has to offer.
