A textbook for undergraduate students of physics, other physical sciences, applied mathematics, or engineering. Harper (California State U.-Hayward) presents the essential mathematical wave motion, heat and thermodynamics, electromagnetism, modern physics, and quantum mechanics. He assumes students to have a working knowledge of general physics and differential and integral calculus. He discusses topics not usually included in undergraduate texts, such as essentials of vector spaces, essential algebraic structures and exterior differential forms.
