Advanced Engineering Mathematics (For Computer Engineering)

  1. Jul 8, 2007 #1
    Hi is there any books you can recommend for advanced engineering mathematics for ComE? if yes please post the link...
    And whats it all about maths in computer engineering?? or are they similar to any advanced math in engineering?

    I would say no.

    For a comp eng major at my uni you need all the regular courses a comp sci needs except you take 1 less stat course, and you take 1 more math course, diff EQ. You also take 1 more physics course that a comp sci major doesn't have to take.

    I would say Math for comp eng would be more like math for EE majors.

    As far as courses go, I don't find any of the comp eng courses that math intensive when you go into the core courses. But it may all depend which electives you take.

    If you take electives more related to EE rather than Comp Sci then you'll find it more math intensive i'd assume.

    I'm an EE and I've always used Kreyzig's "Advanced Engineering Mathematics" for my engineering math courses*. It's not an amazing book, but if you have a good background in math, and you're reasonably intelligent, it should work well.

    * I.e. the courses that were not calculus 1, 2 and 3. I don't think the book would be good to learn the first 3 calculus courses. However, it does have nice coverage of linear algebra, ODEs, PDEs, statistics & probability and some other material.

    Edit - I forgot to mention that it doesn't cover some topics that you'd want to know as a computer engineer, like discrete math and that entire branch of related math. I can't recommend a book for that material as I've never taken a discrete math class.
