Material for a Course in 
Mathematics For Physicists

(by Dr. Kenneth Howell)


Below are links to some of the material I have developed over several years of teaching a two semester, beginning graduate level course on the mathematics commonly used in physics ("Mathematical Methods for Physicists" at the University of Alabama in Huntsville).  The links are to the lecture notes on which the course on which the course was eventually based, and to two sets of homework handouts, one set for each semester.  There are also exercise sets in the lecture notes.
