## PHYS 3010 Introduction to Mathematical Physics Fall 2017

• Syllabus
• Text books
• No text is formally assigned. Class notes are provided below. If you would like to have an appropriate text then I can recommend the following
• Mathematical Methods for Science Students by G. Stephenson
• Differential Equations by H T H Piaggio
• Vector Analysis by Barry Spain
• Fundamentals of Mathematical Physics by E A Kraut
• Class notes
• Homework Assignments
• Homework assignments are due two classes after the material is covered in class. When assignments are returned no more assignments will be accepted.
• Assignment 1 - due date Friday September 1. Note: the first couple of problems don't have closed forms for the integral and the sum. use the evalf() function to find the approximate numerical values of the answers.
• Assignment 2 - due date Friday September 8. This is also a Maple assignment, based on functions. Although the questions can be answered using variable assignments (such as f:=3*x+2) I want you to get practice in using the equivalent functional form (f:=x->3*x+2) as this is more useful.
