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
