I have the opportunity to receive a book of up to a $20 value that must be related to mathematics, actuarial science, or education, so I was trying to find a good mathematics of physics or mathematics of chemistry book. Some of the ones I found are:
-Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics...
My quantum physics professor this semester showed us a useful book he had with tables of integrals, etc. in it called "Tables of Integrals and Other Mathematical Data" (4th edition) by Herbert Bristol Dwight. I have been considering buying this book from Amazon but was waiting because today was...
For personal reasons, I am moving to an area where there are not any larger universities that offer Master's and PhD programs, and I am also not 100% sure I want to currently pursue a PhD or not. One route that I am thinking of taking, though, is to find a job in order to see what industry is...
Sorry I keep posting about this. I had settled on Probability (Probability in discrete and continuous sample spaces; conditional probability; counting techniques; probability functions; binomial, Poisson, normal distributions; and transformations of variables.) based off of previous answers to...
Thank you for the advice! jedishrfu, I am not sure if the mathematical modeling class is computer-based or not, and I was leaning towards Probability because I have heard that probability and statistics are useful subjects to know for topics like quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics...
I previously inquired about whether a Probability or Mathematical Statistics course would be a more useful base for learning more about advanced quantum mechanics and related subjects in the future, since I need to take one more math elective next semester for my major. From the two I decided...
Thank you for all the advice! I was leaning towards Probability and the comments on here has strengthened my leaning towards that direction. I am interested in pursuing theoretical research in graduate school (if I'm accepted), so Probability definitely sounds like the better course to take for now.
I am a Mathematics and Chemistry major with a Physics minor. I need to take one more mathematics elective course next semester. I had two picked out but both unfortunately overlap with other classes I am taking, so I am now trying to choose between Probability or Mathematical Statistics (course...
A bit of background: I am currently a fifth year Mathematics and Chemistry double major with a minor in Physics. My interests (as well as my degree plan) has greatly evolved over the course of my undergraduate career, and I am in my final year with a great interest in furthering my knowledge of...
