Which book for Advanced Engineering Math ?

The conversation is discussing recommendations for further reading after using Thomas' Calculus. Some suggestions for topics like Differential Equations, Complex Analysis, and Fourier Transforms are mentioned, along with the mention of the book Kreyzig as a potential resource. The speaker also mentions their experience with Courant's Calculus text and their preference for Greenberg's Advanced Engineering Mathematics book. They also express interest in finding a text on Basic electronics of transistors. In summary, the conversation is centered around suggestions for further reading and texts in the areas of engineering mathematics and electronics, with Greenberg's book being recommended as a good resource.

I have used Thomas' Calculus , now what should I consider next (mainly for Differential Equations/Complex Analysis/Fourier Transforms etc.) I heard Kreyzig is good , any recommendations on that ?

PS: Actually I found Thomas' to be very good, but when I read Courant's Calculus text, I felt as if I was doing very elementary text.

PS2: Oh , and if there's an electronics guy reading this, i am also looking for a text on Basic electronics of transistors.

Thx all !

I like Greenberg's Advanced Engineering Mathematics book the best of the ones that I have looked through. His chapters on complex analysis and ODEs are pretty typical, but I like his treatment of linear algebra and PDEs better than the other engineering math books I have read. I own the 5th edition of Wylie and Barrett, which I would not recommend in general. The price of Greenberg is pure robbery, however. I would look for used copies.

I would recommend considering Kreyzig's Advanced Engineering Mathematics as it covers topics such as differential equations, complex analysis, and Fourier transforms. It is highly regarded in the field and is known for its clear explanations and comprehensive coverage of these topics. Additionally, you may want to consider other texts such as Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Erwin Kreyszig or Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Peter O'Neil. For basic electronics of transistors, I would suggest checking out the text Electronic Devices and Circuit Theory by Robert Boylestad, as it is a widely used and well-respected resource in the field. Ultimately, it is important to choose a text that aligns with your learning style and covers the material in a way that is understandable to you. I recommend researching and comparing different texts to find the best fit for your needs.
