Officially branded "Mathematical Physics", which is slightly misleading, this lecture and workshop module builds on the introductory Maths modules in Year-1 of both the Physics and Maths degree schemes. The aim is to introduce physicists to some of the slightly more complex mathematical concepts needed when doing physics at a professional level and to show mathematicians some applications of their trade. The module comprises two lectures and a two-hour workshop each week.
These notes are meant to help you revise. However, I may include additional material in the lectures or not cover all of the material listed here.
We recommend you use the solution sheets after having a go at the problems and discussing them with fellow students and staff during the workshop. There is also a toolbox sheet for revision.
I find Mary L Boas's book, Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences, New York: Wiley, 21983 very useful. Many of the examples used in the workshops are based on it. There are a few copies of various vintages in the Physical Sciences Library.
