Based on and enriched by the long-term teaching experience of the authors, Higher Mathematics for Engineering and Technology: Problems and Solutions covers the major themes of mathematics in engineering and technical specialties. The book covers the elements of linear algebra and analytic geometry, differential calculus of a function of one variable, and elements of higher algebra. On each theme the authors first present short theoretical overviews and then go on to give problems to be solved. The authors provide the solution of some typical, relatively difficult problems and guidelines for solving them.

The authors consider the development of the self-dependent thinking ability of students in the construction of problems and indicate which problems are relatively difficult. The book is geared so that some of the problems presented can be solved in class, and others are meant to solved independently. An extensive, explanatory solution of at least one typical problem is included, with emphasis on applications, formulas, and rules.

This volume is primarily addressed to advanced students of engineering and technical specialties as well as to engineers/technicians and instructors of mathematics. It will be useful for the study of automatization of instrument-building processes, electronics, telecommunication and radiotechnics, mechanics and robototechnics, computer engineering, information technologies and systems, metrology, standardization and certification, biomedical technology, chemical engineering, ecological engineering, geology, hydrology, geophysics, oil and gas engineering, materials science, energy machine building, technological machines and equipment, electroenergetics, heat energetics, world economics, organization and management of economics, marketing, management, management of business, etc.

Key features:

  • Presents the theoretical background necessary for solving problems, including definitions, rules, formulas, and theorems on the particular theme
  • Provides an extended solution of at least one problem on every theme and guidelines for solving some difficult problems
  • Selects problems for independent study as well as those during classroom time, taking into account the similarity of both sets of problems
  • Differentiates relatively difficult problems from others for those who want to study mathematics more deeply
  • Provides answers to the problems within the text rather than at the back of the book, enabling more direct verification of problem solutions
  • Presents a selection of problems and solutions that are very interesting not only for the students but also for professor-teacher staff
