Thinking About Equations PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Thinking About Equations free pdf "Thinking About Equations" provides an accessible guide to developing an intuitive understanding of mathematical methods and, at the same time, presents a number of practical mathematical tools for successfully solving problems that arise in engineering and the physical sciences. Worked-out problems from various fields of study illustrate mathematical concepts and techniques and are accompanied by a comprehensive solution, explanation, and commentary. Eight succinct chapters provide thorough topical coverage, including: Approximation and estimation- Isolating important variables- Generalization and special cases- Dimensional analysis and scaling- Pictorial methods and graphical solutions- and, Symmetry to simplify equations. Providing numerous exercises to test comprehension and requiring only a working knowledge of basic calculus and introductory physics, "Thinking About Equations" is an excellent supplement for courses in engineering and the physical sciences. It is also a valuable reference for researchers, practitioners, and educators who encounter mathematical problems in their day-to-day work.
