This book covers the fundamental
methodologies in mathematical physics, including the
theory of functions of complex variable, the derivation
of mathematical physics equations and the methods for
solving them, and the properties of some special
functions. Besides the common and classical methods,
updating ideas are also introduced, e.g., the saddle
point and asymptotic representation, the generalized
function, and the single soliton solution of nonlinear
equations. This book is not only necessary for the
college students majoring in physics to learn the
electrodynamics and quantum mechanics, but also
indispensable for most students majoring in science and
technology to further their studies.
This book will be accompanied by an
Exercises and solutions book,
Exercises in Mathematical Physics, by the
same authors, published in April 2006.
