I can't say I love it since it's only a school book, but considering what I've seen of it, it looks pretty much like the original version. I liked that it was a paperback cover, but at the same time I do wish there were hardback versions of this. At least I know I got my money's worth. --By Kyoko on August 28, 2013
Erwin Kreyszig s Advanced Engineering Mathematics , 9th Edition introduces engineers and computer scientists to advanced math topics as they relate to practical problems.
In today s world of increasingly complex engineering problems, powerful new mathematical and computational methods, and enormous computer capacities, you can get overwhelmed by little things you will only occasionally use. Instead, you need to learn how to think mathematically and gain a firm grasp of the interrelationship among theory, computing, and experiment. That s why Kreyszig s text helps you develop a solid understanding of the basic principles and methods of advanced engineering mathematics in all three phases of problem solving: Modeling, Solving, and Interpreting. This best–selling text is known for its comprehensive coverage, careful and correct mathematics, outstanding exercises, and self–contained chapters.
- New problem sets.
- New Computer Experiments, using the computer as an instrument of experimental mathematics for exploration and research.
- More on modeling and selection methods.
- Accurate and solid theoretical foundation.
- Clear examples and exposition of material.
- Modern and standard notations.
Erwin O. Kreyszig (January 6, 1922 in Pirna, Germany December 12, 2008) was a German Canadian applied mathematician and the Professor of Mathematics at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. He was a pioneer in the field of applied mathematics: non-wave replicating linear systems. He was also a distinguished author, having written the textbook Advanced Engineering Mathematics, the leading textbook for civil, mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering undergraduate engineering mathematics. Kreyszig received his Ph.D. degree in 1949 at the University of Darmstadt under the supervision of Alwin Walther. He then continued his research activities at the universities of Tübingen and Münster. Prior to joining Carleton University in 1984, he held positions at Stanford University (1954/55), the University of Ottawa (1955/56), Ohio State University (1956 60, professor 1957) and he completed his habilitation at the University of Mainz. In 1960 he became professor at the Technical University of Graz and organized the Graz 1964 Mathematical Congress. He worked at the University of Düsseldorf (1967 71) and at the University of Karlsruhe (1971 73). From 1973 through 1984 he worked at the University of Windsor and since 1984 he had been at Carleton University. He was awarded the title of Distinguished Research Professor in 1991 in recognition of a research career during which he published 176 papers in refereed journals, and 37 in refereed conference proceedings. Kreyszig was also an administrator, developing a Computer Centre at the University of Graz, and at the Mathematics Institute at the University of Düsseldorf. In 1964, he took a leave of absence from Graz to initiate a doctoral program in mathematics at Texas A&M University. Kreyszig authored 14 books, including Advanced Engineering Mathematics, which was published in its 10th edition in 2011. He supervised 104 master's, 22 doctoral, and 12 postdoctoral students. Together with his son he founded the Erwin and Herbert Kreyszig scholarship which has funded graduate students since 2001.
