About this eBook
PREFACE TO THE SEVENTH REVISED EDITION The demand of Mathematical Physics by the students and teachers has encouraged me to revise the text book. The entire book is rewritten in such a way that it can cover the syllabus of B.Sc. H Physics, B.Sc. H Electronics, and M.Sc. Physics of various universities. The contents of the book is divided into five units. Each unit is further divided into simpler and short chapters, so that readers can follow the subject matter easily. The text is very lucid and simple. Four Solved Question Papers of Delhi University, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Semesters, 2012 are included at the end of the textbook. This book should satisfy both average and brilliant students. It would help the students to get high grades in their examination and at the same time would arouse greater intellectual curiosity in them. The misprints that came to my knowledge, have been removed. We are thankful to the Management Team and the Editorial Department of S. Chand Company Pvt. Ltd. for all help and support in the publication of this book. All valuable suggestions for the improvement of the book will be highly appreciated and gratefully acknowledged too.

PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION This is my first effort to write a book on Mathematical Physics. The chief aim of this book is to meet the requirements of students of B.Sc. Honours Physics and M.Sc. of various Indian Universities. The subject-matter is presented in a very systematic and logical manner. Every endeavour has been made to make the content simple and lucid as far as possible. While every effort has been made to present the material correctly, no attempt has been made to be absolutely rigorous. The subject matter has been so arranged that even an average student can understand how to apply the mathematical operations to the problems of Physics. All valuable suggestions for the improvement of the book will be highly appreciated and gratefully acknowledged. I am thankful to Shri Rajendra Kumar Gupta, Managing Director, Shri Ravindra Kumar Gupta, Director and other members of the staff of the Publishers, M s S. Chand Co. Ltd., New Delhi without whose co-operation, it would not have been possible to put this book in such a fine format
