Thinking About Equations provides an accessible guide to developing an intuitive understanding of mathematical methods and, at the same time, presents a number of practical mathematical tools for successfully solving problems that arise in engineering and the physical sciences.

Worked-out problems from various fields of study illustrate mathematical concepts and techniques and are accompanied by a comprehensive solution, explanation, and commentary. Eight succinct chapters provide thorough topical coverage, including:

  • Approximation and estimation

  • Isolating important variables

  • Generalization and special cases

  • Dimensional analysis and scaling

  • Pictorial methods and graphical solutions

  • Symmetry to simplify equations

Providing numerous exercises to test comprehension and requiring only a working knowledge of basic calculus and introductory physics, Thinking About Equations is an excellent supplement for courses in engineering and the physical sciences. It is also a valuable reference for researchers, practitioners, and educators who encounter mathematical problems in their day-to-day work.
