The Book Is Intended As A Text For Students Of Physics At The Master S Level. It Is Assumed That The Students Pursuing The Course Have Some Knowledge Of Differential Equations And Complex Variables. In Addition, A Knowledge Of Physics Upto At Least The B.Sc. (Honours) Level Is Assumed. Throughout The Book The Applications Of The Mathematical Techniques Developed, To Physics Are Emphasized. Examples Are, To A Large Extent, Drawn From Various Branches Of Physics. The Exercises Provide Further Extensions To Such Applications And Are Often ``Chosen`` To Illustrate And Supplement The Material In The Text. They Thus Form An Essential Part Of The TextDistinguishing Features Of The Book: * Emphasis On Applications To Physics. The Examples And Problems Are Chosen With This Aspect In Mind. * More Than One Hundred Solved Examples And A Large Collection Of Problems In The Exercises. * A Discussion On Non-Linear Differential Equations-A Topic Usually Not Found In Standard Texts. There Is Also A Section Devoted To Systems Of Linear, First Order Differential Equations. * One Full Chapter On Linear Vector Spaces And Matrices. This Chapter Is Essential For The Understanding Of The Mathematical Foundations Of Quantum Mechanics And The Material Can Be Used In A Course Of Quantum Mechanics. * Parts Of Chapter-6 (Greens Function) Will Be Useful In Courses On Electrodynamics And Quantum Mechanics. * One Complete Chapter Is Devoted To Group Theory Within Special Emphasis On The Applications In Physics. The Subject Matter Is Treated In Fairly Great Detail And Can Be Used In A Course On Group Theory.
