## Mathematics for Physics and Physicists |

"
"This nicely organized and pedagogically excellent book not only covers material that students of physics and engineering are conventionally assumed to need at an advanced undergraduate and graduate level but goes beyond that by including some important modern mathematics not usually included in such texts--such as Lebesgue integration, theory of distributions, probability theory, and differential geometry. It treats the material in a rigorous yet friendly manner from a physicist's perspective, and even includes interesting historical asides that convey to a student the idea that mathematics is not a dead subject. It is an excellent choice as a course textbook or as an addition to a physicist's bookshelf." "As happens to many of us who teach a mathematics for physicists course to physics students, Appel--who for years taught such a course at the école Normale Supérieure de Lyon--faced the problem of finding a textbook that is neither too soft or imprecise nor too specialized mathematically. This book is Appel's own elegant way out of this dilemma. Physics students at the graduate level will benefit handsomely." "
