Every new copy includes access to the Student Companion Website and Project Center!
This updated Fifth Edition of the bestselling text Advanced Engineering Mathematics provides an in-depth overview of the many mathematical topics required for students planning a career in engineering or the sciences. Comprehensive, accessible, and thorough, this highly flexible text is the ideal resource for a multitude of science and engineering classes, and will prove invaluable to graduate and undergraduate students pursuing careers in these fields. Critically acclaimed author Dennis G. Zill has structured the text around the belief that the backbone of science- and engineering-related mathematics is the theory and application of ordinary and partial differential equations, resulting in a text that is as relevant and well-organized as it is thorough.
The revised and updated Fifth Edition includes a full suite of instructor materials, including a Complete Solutions Manual, Test Bank, Image Bank, and Lecture Outlines in PowerPoint format, and additional chapters on probability and statistics. There is also a Student Companion Website with supplemental resources for individual study. A Student Solutions Manual is also available.
Advanced Engineering Mathematics, Fifth Edition was recently awarded the William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award ("McGuffey") from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA) the only association devoted solely to serving textbook and academic authors since 1987 (www.TAAonline.net). The "McGuffey" Award recognizes textbooks and learning materials whose excellence has been demonstrated over time.
