Good Applied Math Book

  1. May 19, 2012 #1
    I have completed Calc 1 - 3 Diff EQ and Linear Algebra and have a degree in Mechanical Eng. I have some free time this summer and am looking for suggestions on a book that deals with applied math at a level somewhat above the courses I have listed. I would like to be challenged and have to material relate to my background listed above.

    My only thought right now is Div Grad Curl and all that by Schey. I would like some more ideas to choose from. Thanks!

    I have become interested again in a book that has been on my shelf for a while
    Gilbert Strang's - Introduction to Applied Mathematics
    It was a text for a course I took a while back.
    I am revisiting it because I'm beginning to more deeply appreciate its contents.
    (I am also trying to teach myself the finite-element method.)

    Through interlibrary loan, I am awaiting a newer somewhat-related text
    Strang's Computational Science and Engineering

    You might want to check out his video lectures
