This new and completely revised Fourth Edition provides thorough coverage of the important mathematics needed for upper-division and graduate study in physics and engineering. After more than 28 years of successful class-testing, Mathematical Methods for Physicists is considered the standard text on the subject. A new chapter on nonlinear methods and chaos is included, as are revisions of the differential equations and complex variables chapters. The entire book has been made even more accessible, with special attention given to clarity, completeness, and physical motivation. It is an excellent reference apart from its course use. Features: * This revised Fourth Edition includes: * Modernized technology * Group theoretic methods brought together and expanded in a new chapter * An entirely new chapter on nonlinear mathematical physics * Significant revisions of the differential equations and complex variables chapters * Many new or improved exercises * Forty new or improved figures * An update of computational techniques for today's contemporary tools, such as microcomputers, Numerical Recipes, and Mathematica, among others
