Item description for Introduction to Mathematical Physics (Physics Textbook) by Michael T. Vaughn...

A comprehensive survey of all the mathematical methods that should be available to graduate students in physics. In addition to the usual topics of analysis, such as infinite series, functions of a complex variable and some differential equations as well as linear vector spaces, this book includes a more extensive discussion of group theory than can be found in other current textbooks. The main feature of this textbook is its extensive treatment of geometrical methods as applied to physics. With its introduction of differentiable manifolds and a discussion of vectors and forms on such manifolds as part of a first-year graduate course in mathematical methods, the text allows students to grasp at an early stage the contemporary literature on dynamical systems, solitons and related topological solutions to field equations, gauge theories, gravitational theory, and even string theory.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Mathematical Physics (Physics Textbook)?

Precise, Modern, and Essential.  Apr 27, 2008
Remarkably self-contained and written with great care and attention to detail, this manuscript provides the reader with a strong foundation for the study of mathematical physics. Notably, there is a wonderful balance of mathematical rigor to that of the actual physical interpretations of mathematical results. Examples of this include the chapter on the geometry of physics and the final chapters on group theory. The reader is supplied with the necessary tools and concepts to progress further in these subjects which are essential for modern applications. The problem sets in many cases are also rather unique and correlate very well with the presented material. I expect this text to be a valuable resource to a very wide audience of physicists ranging in specializations from condensed matter, to the physics of biological systems, and to the study of particle physics.
