Advanced Engineering Mathematics
In this large textbook Turyn provides an exhaustive coverage of topics relevant to the engineering student. The target audience for the book is advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. The book's 18 chapters begin with topics that might already be familiar to advanced undergraduates such as linear algebra, matrix theory, and differential equations and conclude with discussions of more advanced topics: conformal mapping; Fourier, Hankel and inverse Laplace transforms; and non-linear ordinary differential equations. There are three appendices, Partial fractions, Laplace Transforms Definitions and Derivations, and Series Solutions of ODEs. The text contains a large number of examples that illustrate the theoretical mathematics being presented. Virtually every topic and sub-topic in the book has at least one example problem and how to solve it. Problems sets are also present even for most sub-chapters. Many topics contain a "Learn More About it" section with references to more rigorous and detailed handling of the topic at hand.
