Recommends it for: those who want to develop a hatred for math
Shelves: math
This book is why engineers hate math. I presume Kreyszig is the kind of man who responds to his children's questions with, "Because I'm the adult and I said so!" The exercises could have been generated by a monkey playing Mad Libs with numerals and notation; they reduce math to cold calculation and avoid any attempt at leading the student to discovery. There is no joy in this book.

Regardless of what book your professor chooses, I suggest using Mary Boas' far more enjoyable (and just as rigorous)

I had a long relationship with this book in collage time. (forgot on what edition) and it was a love-hate relationship :-p

I'm using this book as well as two other books on Engineering Mathematics by B.S Grewal and Michael Greenberg.
According to me this is a great book to learn D.E. and vector calculus and the book is very good as it has covered all the necessary topics with practical examples(I like this feature).

But I would say if you have weak basic concepts then go for B.S Grewal and Michael Greenberg before coming on to this books as this book do not cover all the basic concepts and contains very less solved pr

Potentially decent reference, but joyless and uninvolving. I attempted to use it as an introduction to vector calculus and PDEs. It claims to be a comprehensive and thorough treatment of applied math, and it achieves this by way of thoroughly superficial exposition. It is everything that makes advanced math unwelcoming.

I've found this book to be a useful reference. It is not, however, a great teaching tool. It's more of a book you go to when you know exactly what you need and just can't remember the specifics off the top of your head.

I used this book time and again but as far as my opinion, ease of use and preference is concerned, I prefer the book written by Arfken and Weber. Why, even Riley and Hobson's is much better at presenting the concepts.

Recommends it for: engineering students who don't love abstract math
lots of details and examples. color graphics.

This book was recommended by the university for the courses: Differential equations and Special Functions, Complex Analysis and Fourier Analysis. My impression of the book is limited to the topics that i covered in the university.

In differential equations, the book was too advanced for my course, and reading it wasn't easy. This may be due to the fact that engineers do not get enough exposure to mathematics to enable the more theoretical parts of this book readable without an instructor.

May 14, 2011 Allen rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
The math content and the problem sets are challenging enough to make me feel like I'm getting my money's worth so I'm thankful for that. But the book is written to spoon-feed students and I really dislike that in a textbook. The use of bold, italic and reminders in parenthesis coupled to exclamation points is superfluous. In my opinion, sentence structure and grammar should indicate to the thoughtful reader what is important. I remember my nice, dry physics textbooks from undergrad studies being ...more

I used this book in an intermediate undergrad level class, and I believe that is the source of my dislike for this book. It is bad at presenting its material in an easy to understand way, and is generally very confusing for me. The examples are far to specific to be used as homework help. Reading the text before class didn't prepare me for the class at all, I spent the semester relying entirely on my notes. The structure of the book is not in progression of topics with advancing difficulty, whic ...more

i think this is the bible of maths and i m reading this book from first semester and this is my sixth semester and this is last semester in which i will read it.Although i still did not buy it but i recommend all engineering frieds to buy it because my uni had give me one copy as a prize to me haha hahaha haha haha ahaha haha ha ha

Author comes across as too impressed with himself rather than properly relaying the information; thus, the practice problems are ridiculous and the explanations slim on material. I did learn Gaussian Elimination

A classic mathematical tome. The book Lisbeth Salander would have in her hand bag (although she would probably have a satchel).

Agood reference book for applied mathematics methods. Explains the theory in lots of detail.
Quite good at explaining vector calculus.
