Herman R.L. A course in mathematical methods for physicists
CRC Press, 2014. - 765p. ISBN -13: 978-1-4665-8468-6
This is a book on mathematical methods seen in physics and aimed at undergraduate students who have completed a year-long introductory course in physics. The intent of the course is to introduce students to many of the mathematical techniques useful in their undergraduate science education long before they are exposed to more focused topics in physics.
