520    This book, first published in 2004, provides an 
       introduction to the major mathematical structures used in 
       physics today. It covers the concepts and techniques 
       needed for topics such as group theory, Lie algebras, 
       topology, Hilbert space and differential geometry. 
       Important theories of physics such as classical and 
       quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and special and general
       relativity are also developed in detail, and presented in 
       the appropriate mathematical language. The book is 
       suitable for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate
       students in mathematical and theoretical physics, as well 
       as applied mathematics. It includes numerous exercises and
       worked examples, to test the reader's understanding of the
       various concepts, as well as extending the themes covered 
       in the main text. The only prerequisites are elementary 
       calculus and linear algebra. No prior knowledge of group 
       theory, abstract vector spaces or topology is required
