About

Overview

Through previous editions, Peter O'Neil has made rigorous engineering mathematics topics accessible to thousands of students by emphasizing visuals, numerous examples, and interesting mathematical models. Now, ADVANCED ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS features revised examples and problems as well as newly added content that has been fine-tuned throughout to improve the clear flow of ideas. The computer plays a more prominent role than ever in generating computer graphics used to display concepts and problem sets. In this new edition, computational assistance in the form of a self contained Maple Primer has been included to encourage students to make use of such computational tools. The content has been reorganized into six parts and covers a wide spectrum of topics including Ordinary Differential Equations, Vectors and Linear Algebra, Systems of Differential Equations and Qualitative Methods, Vector Analysis, Fourier Analysis, Orthogonal Expansions, and Wavelets, and much more.

Features and Benefits

  • The book is divided into 6 parts for ease of use.
  • Includes a "Guide to Notation" in the front inside cover showing the symbols and notation used throughout the text paired with the section in which it is defined or used.
  • Presents the correct development of concepts such as Fourier series and integrals, conformal mappings, and special functions, at the beginning of the text followed by applications and models of important phenomena, such as wave and heat propagation and filtering of signals.
  • Includes numerous fully solved example problems as well as review problems following each section of the text.
  • Online Instructor's Companion Site includes solutions for additional chapters on probability and statistics, instructor's solutions manual, and PowerPoint slides for use in lectures.
