Introduction-

This book covers almost every topic that an undergraduate applied mathematics student could expect to encounter in their studies. It is a HUGE book, at 1156 pages plus appendicies.


Contents-


  1. Ordinary Differential Equations
  2. Linear Algebra, Vector Calculus
  3. Fourier Analysis and Partial Differential Equations
  4. Complex Analysis
  5. Numerical Methods
  6. Optimization, Graphs
  7. Probability and Statistics
    [/list=1]


    Pros and Cons-


    The positives for this book, are as I've said, it covers almost everything. The negatives are that it is maybe a bit expensive for a new copy, (not to bad for a second hand copy). I have no idea how much it is in countries other than Australia, but I know it is a bit pricey here.


    Conclusion-


    I think this book is great, and it is already serving me well, and I've only had it for a month. I guess it is up to you to way up the pro's and cons.

I have found this book to be an invaluable reference...I haven't used it too much but I have found a reasonable explanation for just about everything I ever wanted to know about mathematics in it. I still prefer full length texts to this kind of reference style book, however I just like to know all of the mathematical details :approve:

I agree with the above. I used it for one of my classes and it has turned out to be a good reference, but lacks depth on any particular area so it isn't really useful for anything serious.
