This text aims to provide students in engineering with a sound presentation of post-calculus mathematics. It features numerous examples, many involving engineering applications, and contains all mathematical techniques for engineering degrees. The book also contains over 5000 exercises, which range from routine practice problems to more difficult applications. In addition, theoretical discussions illuminate principles, indicate generalizations and establish limits within which a given technique may or may not be safely used.

Excellent Reference Book
This is an excellent reference book. The cover and papers were all neat, and the price was reasonable as compared to that of a new one.

Barrett was a good choice to update the book.
By randolph best
This book on advanced engineering mathematics had been for a long time a sort of cult book among engineering students at Montana State in Bozeman, and was used for MSU's year-long junior course in applied mathematics in the math dept. Apparently, Wylie was getting on in years and wanted a co-author. Having studied applied math with Prof. Barrett at Bozeman, I can definitely say he was the right person to co-author this book, as he has a real reverence for applied math and an insistence upon exact, clear thinking. This is not to say the book is representative of the mathematical style of Western state universities as Wylie got his Ph.D. from Cornell, I believe. Actually, the style reminds me of the books by Churchill, i.e., everything clearly presented with a traditional use of proofs and problems that inspire rather than pander to the student. An extremely useful and enjoyable book for serious students of applied math and advanced engineering.
