Hi all
I'm currently selfstudying a relatively new book, "A Course in Modern Mathematical Physics", by Peter Szekeres, retired fellow at Uni of Adelaide (yes, he's the son of George Szekeres, of "KruskalSzekeres coordinates" fame ). I find it so far to be a totally great book! I haven't read many introductory mathphys books (I'm a fan of Schutz's "Geometrical Methods of Mathematical Physics" and Prakash's "Mathematical Perpectives on Theoretical Physics"), but this one is fantastic and covers a lot of interesting maths. I was wondering if anybody happens to have the solutions to the exercises found within. I've been stuck on a couple of the problems, and I would like to check them out with someone. Nitin

I'm also using this book for self study. I agree that it's an excellent exposition on math physics. A solutions manual would be great.

Does anybody have a list of errata for this book?
Thanks, Goldbeetle

A Course in Modern Mathematical Physics [Peter Szekeres]
I suppose you could all compare results! If only the replies weren't two years apart.

Actually, I was just interested in the list of the book errata...
