First published in 1992, Essentials of Engineering Mathematics is a widely popular reference ideal for self-study, review, and fast answers to specific questions. While retaining the style and content that made the first edition so successful, the second edition provides even more examples, new material, and most importantly, an introduction to using two of the most prevalent software packages in engineering: Maple and MATLAB. Specifically, this edition includes:

• Introductory accounts of Maple and MATLAB that offer a quick start to using symbolic software to perform calculations, explore the properties of functions and mathematical operations, and generate graphical output
• New problems involving the mean value theorem for derivatives
• Extension of the account of stationary points of functions of two variables
• The concept of the direction field of a first-order differential equation
• Introduction to the delta function and its use with the Laplace transform

The author includes all of the topics typically covered in first-year undergraduate engineering mathematics courses, organized into short, easily digestible sections that make it easy to find any subject of interest. Concise, right-to-the-point exposition, a wealth of examples, and extensive problem sets at the end each chapter--with answers at the end of the book--combine to make Essentials of Engineering Mathematics, Second Edition ideal as a supplemental textbook, for self-study, and as a quick guide to fundamental concepts and techniques.
