This text is designed for an intermediate-level, two-semester undergraduate course in mathematical physics. It provides an accessible account of most of the current, important mathematical tools required in physics these days. It is assumed that the reader has an adequate preparation in general physics and calculus. The book bridges the gap between an introductory physics course and more advanced courses in classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, and thermal and statistical physics. The text contains a large number of worked examples to illustrate the mathematical techniques developed and to show their relevance to physics. The book is designed primarily for undergraduate physics majors, but could also be used by students in other subjects, such as engineering, astronomy and mathematics.

This book provides a self-contained and rigorous presentation of the main mathematical tools needed to approach many courses at the last year of undergraduate in Physics and MSc programs, from Electromagnetism to Quantum Mechanics. It complements A Guide to Mathematical Methods for Physicists with advanced topics and physical applications. The different arguments are organised in three main sections: Complex Analysis, Differential Equations and Hilbert Spaces, covering most of the standard mathematical method tools in modern physics.One of the purposes of the book is to show how seemingly different mathematical tools like, for instance, Fourier transforms, eigenvalue problems, special functions and so on, are all deeply interconnected. It contains a large number of examples, problems and detailed solutions, emphasising the main purpose of relating concrete physical examples with more formal mathematical aspects. remove

In der Quantentheorie werden Observable durch Operatoren im Hilbert-Raum dargestellt. Der dafür geeignete mathematische Rahmen sind die Cx - Algebren, welche Matrizen und komplexe Funktionen verallgemeinern. Allerdings benötigt man in der Physik auch unbeschränkte Operatoren, deren Problematik eigens untersucht werden muß. Dementsprechend werden zunächst mathematische Fragen studiert und dann die Methoden auf atomare Systeme angewandt. Obgleich man außer dem Wasserstoffatom kaum explizit lösbare Probleme findet, lassen sich nicht nur allgemeine qualitative Fragen, etwa bezüglich des Energiespektrums und Streuverhaltens, beantworten, sondern auch quantitativ kann man auch für kompliziertere Systeme für meßbare Größen Schranken teils befriedigender Genauigkeit finden. Inhaltsverzeichnis: Einleitung: Die Struktur der Quantentheorie; Größenordnungen atomarer Systeme.- Die mathematische Formulierung der Quantenmechanik: Lineare Räume; Algebren; Darstellungen im Hilbertraum; Einparametrige Gruppen; Unbeschränkte Operatoren und quadratische Formen.- Quantendynamik: Das Weyl-System; Der Drehimpuls; Die Zeitentwicklung; Der Limes t ; Störungstheorie; Stationäre Streutheorie.- Atomare Systeme: Das Wasserstoffatom; Das H-Atom in äußeren Feldern; Heliumartige Atome; Streuung am einfachen Atom; Komplexe Atome; Kernbewegung und einfache Moleküle.

Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this new textbook contains an introduction to the mathematical concepts used in physics and engineering. The entire book is unique in that it draws upon applications from physics, rather than mathematical examples, to ensure students are fully equipped with the tools they need. This approach prepares the reader for advanced topics, such as quantum mechanics and general relativity, while offering examples, problems, and insights into classical physics. The book is also distinctive in the coverage it devotes to modelling, and to oft-neglected topics such as Green's functions.

The first textbook on mathematical methods focusing on techniques for optical science and engineering, this text is ideal for upper division undergraduate and graduate students in optical physics. Containing detailed sections on the basic theory, the textbook places strong emphasis on connecting the abstract mathematical concepts to the optical systems to which they are applied. It covers many topics which usually only appear in more specialized books, such as Zernike polynomials, wavelet and fractional Fourier transforms, vector spherical harmonics, the z-transform, and the angular spectrum representation. Most chapters end by showing how the techniques covered can be used to solve an optical problem. Essay problems based on research publications and numerous exercises help to further strengthen the connection between the theory and its applications.
