A Major Revision of The Best-Selling Reference on The Practical Math Used in Engineering. Designed to provide engineers with quick-access mathematical formulas for their specialities, the new Fourth Edition includes 20% more information than the prior edition while retaining the handbook's unique presentations of math fundamentals. The Handbook proceeds from algebra and geometry through such advanced topics as Laplace transforms and numerical methods and concludes with basic discussions of plane curves and space curves. It is organized logically to present each math topic as a complete conceptual and visual unit. More comprehensive and easier to use than any problems in advanced math whose solutions are depicted in step-by-step detail, as well as a new glossary of math terms. The Fourth Edition Features New and Revised Material On: Electronic Hand-Held Calculators and Their Advanced Problem-solving Capabilties; Engineering Economics Calculations; Mollweide and Freudenstein Equations; Trigonometry and Mensuration Procedures; Latest Measurement Systems; Logarithms; Cubic and Quartic Equations Maxima and Minima Equations; And More!About the Author:
