Unformatted text preview: Mathematical Methods for Introductory Physics by Robert G. Brown Duke University Physics Department Durham, NC 27708-0305 rgb@phy.duke.edu Copyright Notice Copyright Robert G. Brown 1993, 2007 Notice This is a lecture note style textbook, designed to support my personal teaching activities at Duke University, in particular teaching its Physics 41/42, 53/54, or 61/62 series (Introductory Physics for potential physics majors, life science majors, or engineers respectively). It is freely available in its entirety in a downloadable PDF form or to be read online at: http://www.phy.duke.edu/ rgb/Class/intro physics 2.php and will be made available in an inexpensive print version via Lulu press as soon as it is in a sufficiently polished and complete state. In this way the text can be used by students all over the world, where each student can pay (or not) according to their means. Nevertheless, I am hoping that students who truly find this work useful will purchase a copy through Lulu or Amazon when that option becomes available, if only to help subsidize me while I continue to write inexpensive textbooks in physics or other subjects. Although I no longer use notes to lecture from (having taught the class for decades now, they are hardly necessary) these are real lecture notes and are organized for ease of presentation and ease of learning. They do not try to say every single thing that can be said about each and every topic covered, and are hierarchically organized in a way that directly supports efficient learning. As a live document, these notes have errors great and small, missing figures (that I usually draw from memory in class and will add to the notes themselves as I have time or energy to draw them in a publishable form), and they cover and omit topics according to my own view of what is or isnt important to cover in a one-semester course. Expect them to change without warning as I add content or correct errors. Purchasers of any eventual paper version should be aware of its probable imperfection and be prepared to either live with it or mark up their own copies with corrections or additions as need be (in the lecture note spirit) as I do mine. The text has generous margins, is widely spaced, and contains scattered blank pages for students or instructors own use to facilitate this. I cherish good-hearted communication from students or other instructors pointing out errors or suggesting new content (and have in the past done my best to implement many such corrections or suggestions).
