Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering, Third Edition is a highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook that teaches all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences. As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics and many worked examples, it contains over 800 exercises. New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the ‘special functions’ of physical science, cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators. This solutions manual accompanies the third edition of Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering. It contains complete worked solutions to over 400 exercises in the main textbook, the odd-numbered exercises, that are provided with hints and answers.
It only contains half the solutions, which isn’t that helpful if you’re self studying like me. In the end I decided to switch to other textbooks that specialize in a certain area (like linear algebra, calculus, etc) rather than work through Riley, which I found to be a rather bad way to learn the topics covered in the book for the first time.
