This bestselling textbook is a comprehensive course for undergraduates in engineering and science from second year level onwards. Its highly successful technique-oriented approach guides the student through the development of each topic. There are hundreds of worked examples and exercises. New material has been added throughout this edition.
Engineering Mathematics is the best-selling introductory mathematics text for students on science and engineering degree and pre-degree courses. Sales of previous editions stand at more than half a million copies. It is suitable for classroom use and self-study. Its unique programmed approach takes students through the mathematics they need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples and exercises. The book is divided into two sections with the Foundation section starting at Level 0 of the IEng syllabus and the main section extending over all elements of a first year undergraduate course. The book therefore suits a full range of abilities and levels of access. The online personal tutor guides students through exercises in the same step-by-step fashion as the book, with hundreds of full workings to questions. STUDENT AND LECTURER SUPPLEMENTS Companion Website at www.palgrave.com/stroud : Features applications and questions for each chapter where the maths from the book is used in engineering contexts. This motivates students, especially the more reluctant who cannot always see the point of the maths. The questions occasionally suggest the use of algebraic packages (software that does stages of the maths for you like a complicated calculator - all universities have a system). These questions are relevant to all types of packages, not specific to one. Students can work through themselves or lecturers can print off for class/homework use. PowerPoint lecturer slides featuring the headings and subheadings from the book, plus Learning Objectives and key definitions and all figures and graphs. Also included are photos of the engineering contexts for where the maths is relevant, to create a lively, applied opener to each chapter/programme. The site also provides web-links to other useful sites
The text broadly divided in seven sections contains 26 chapters. The text covers topics on solid geometry, infinite series, differential and integral calculus, matrices, vector calculus, ordinary differential equations, special functions and Laplace transforms, complex analysis, Fourier analysis, partial differential equations, statistics, numerical methods and linear programming.The self-contained text has numerous distinguishing features over the already existing books on the same topic. The chapters have been planned to create interest among the readers to study and apply the mathematical tools. The subject has been presented in a very lucid and precise manner with a wide variety of solved examples and exercises, which would eventually help the reader for hassle-free study. The book can be used as a text for Engineering Mathematics course at various levels.
