About the book

This book is based on the experience and the lecture notes of the authors while teaching Mathematics Courses for more than four decades.
This comprehensive text book covers the material for one year core course in “Mathematical Methods” for first year Engineering students. The emphasis in the book is on the presentation of fundamentals and theoretical concepts in an intelligible and easy to understand manner. Graded sets of examples (in text) and problems (in exercises) are used to explain each theoretical concept and application of these concepts in problem solving. Answers for every problem and hints for difficult problems are provided.

Key Features

NEW TO THE SECOND EDITION:
• Singular Value Decomposition
• B-splines
• Gauss-Legendre Quadrature
• Evaluation of Singular Value Integrals
• Adams-Bashforth-Moulton Fourth Order Predictor-corrector Method
This text book offers a logical and lucid presentation of both theory and techniques for problem solving to motivate the students in the study and application of mathematics, in particular ‘Numerical methods’, to solve Engineering problems.
