Modern Mathematical Methods for Physicists and Engineers. C. D. Cantrell. Cambridge University Press, 40 W. 20th St., New York, NY 10011-4211. 2000. 763 pp. ISBN 0-521-59827-3. $49.95 (paperback).
The author begins with a review of computation, and then deals with a range of key concepts, including sets, fields, matrix theory, and vector spaces. He goes on to cover more advanced subjects, such as linear mappings, group theory, and special functions. The treatment concentrates exclusively on what the author regards as the most important topics that enable the working physical scientist or engineer to make intelligent use of the latest computational and analytical methods. The book also contains over 400 homework problems.
