Mathematica Notebooks on Mathematical Methods for Physics
# Mathematica Notebooks on Mathematical Methods for Physics

These are Mathematica Notebooks written by
Richard G. Palmer of the
Department of Physics of
Duke University.
## Description

These notebooks were written for the Duke University courses
*PHY 230: Mathematical Methods in Physics*
and
*PHY 231: Mathematical Methods in Electromagentism*,
taken by first-year graduate students in Physics.
Notebooks on other
topics are also available.

Originally
the notebooks are designed for Mathematica version 3.0 (!). Some notebooks
are later on.

The notebooks mainly contain text and *unevaluated* Mathematica
expressions. The user is expected to evaluate all such expressions, one
at a time in order, unless otherwise instructed. Evaluating a whole
notebook usually doesn't work, and in any case misses much of the
point.

## The Notebooks

You'll probably need to save the notebooks into files, start up
Mathematica, and then open the file(s).
