Item description for Mathematics Handbook for Science and Engineering by Lennart Rade & Bertil Westergren...
Mathematics Handbook for Science and Engineering is a comprehensive handbook for scientists, engineers, teachers and students at universities. The book presents in a lucid and accessible form classical areas of mathematics like algebra, geometry and analysis and also areas of current interest like discrete mathematics, probability, statistics, optimization and numerical analysis. It concentrates on definitions, results, formulas, graphs and tables and emphasizes concepts and methods with applications in technology and science.For the fifth edition the chapter on Optimization has been enlarged and the chapters on Probability Theory and Statstics have been carefully revised.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mathematics Handbook for Science and Engineering?
Comprehensive and Accessible Oct 22, 2007
I have been looking for a mathematics hanbook for some time that is both comprehesive and clearly written. This book exceeded my expectations. I have found the probability and statistics section to be very beneficial at work. It does include other topics such as vector calculus, complex analysis, and more basic topics like calculus (integral tables) and plane geometry. I took this book to my CRE (Certified Reliability Engineer) exam and it was very helpful. As a note of caution, make an effort to understand the material before applying the handbook. If used correctly, this book will save accessing many other math books to solve critical problems. I would recommend it to any practicing engineer.
Interesting book Jan 9, 2007
It is an interesting book because it collects a set of concepts and definitions very useful when you are working on this field. It allows you to review procedures when you are writing a technical report or a scientific article. Very nice tool!
covers discrete maths, like Boolean algebra and graphs Feb 19, 2006
This reference book is not as comprehensive as classics like Abramowitz and Stegun. The tables of indefinite integrals is very sparse. While the various numerical tables are also not that encompassing.
But the book has a nice wide span of topics. Notably, it starts with a chapter on discrete maths, including Boolean algebra and graph theory. So there is a succinct mention of how to minimise Boolean polynomials, for example. Very useful in circuit design or programming.
Other, older maths references that were oriented to science and engineering typically ignored discrete maths. Perhaps the inclusion here reflects the increasing importance of computational usages in many disciplines?
Excellent Engineering Math Reference Feb 8, 2001
This book has everything (geometry, trig, linear algebra, diff eq, calculus, ...) in a cleanly laid out format. Many figures are provided to clarify definitions. The presentation is clear and concise - usually I do not need to consult another reference for additional details. Out of my math/mechanical engineering book collection, this is probably my favorite book.
Strong Recommend Mathematical Handbook for Science and Eng. Apr 20, 2000
Handbook of Mathematics" contains the fundamental knowledge for Science and Engineer students. I am using the third edition a lot when I do the algorithm performance analysis. Also the nice and big printing style is enjoyable to read. It contains anything which a computer programmer need to know.
