Book Description

Mathematics for Mechanical Engineers gives mechanical engineers convenient access to the essential problem solving tools that they use each day. It covers applications employed in many different facets of mechanical engineering, from basic through advanced, to ensure that you will easily find answers you need in this handy guide.
For the engineer venturing out of familiar territory, the chapters cover fundamentals like physical constants, derivatives, integrals, Fourier transforms, Bessel functions, and Legendre functions. For the experts, it includes thorough sections on the more advanced topics of partial differential equations, approximation methods, and numerical methods, often used in applications. The guide reviews statistics for analyzing engineering data and making inferences, so professionals can extract useful information even with the presence of randomness and uncertainty. The convenient Mathematics for Mechanical Engineers is an indispensable summary of mathematics processes needed by engineers.
