## Preface to Higher Engineering Mathematics PDF

This fifth edition of ‘Higher Engineering Mathematics’ covers essential mathematical material suitable for students studying Degrees, Foundation Degrees, Higher National Certificate and Diploma courses in Engineering disciplines.

In this edition, the material has been re-ordered into the following twelve convenient categories:

1. Number and Algebra
2. Geometry and Trigonometry
3. Graphs
4. Vector Geometry
5. Complex Numbers
6. Matrices and Determinants
7. Differential Calculus
8. Integral Calculus
9. Differential Equations
10. Statistics and Probability
11. Laplace Transform
12. Fourier Series.

New material has been added on inequalities, differentiation of parametric equations, the t = tan θ/2 substitution and homogeneous first-order differential equations.

Another new feature is that a free Internet download is available to lecturers of a sample of solutions (over 1000) of the further problems contained in the Higher Engineering Mathematics by John Bird book.

The primary aim of the material in this text is to provide the fundamental analytical and underpinning knowledge and techniques needed to successfully complete scientific and engineering principles modules of Degree, Foundation Degree, and Higher National Engineering programs.

The material has been designed to enable students to use techniques learned for the analysis, modeling, and solution of realistic engineering problems at Degree and Higher National level.

It also aims to provide some of the more advanced knowledge required for those wishing to pursue careers in mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering, electronics, communications engineering, systems engineering and all variants of control engineering.

In Higher Engineering Mathematics 5th Edition, the theory is introduced in each chapter by a full outline of essential definitions, formulae, laws, procedures, etc.

The theory is kept to a minimum, for problem-solving is extensively used to establish and exemplify the theory. (Higher Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

It is intended that readers will gain real understanding through seeing problems solved and then through solving similar problems themselves.

Access to software packages such as Maple, Mathematica, and Derive, or a graphics calculator, will enhance understanding of some of the topics in this text.

Each topic considered in the text is presented in a way that assumes in the reader only the knowledge attained in BTEC National Certificate/Diploma in an Engineering discipline and Advanced GNVQ in Engineering/Manufacture. (Higher Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

‘Higher Engineering Mathematics’ provides a follow-up to ‘Engineering Mathematics’. This textbook contains some 1000 worked problems, followed by over 1750 further problems (with answers), arranged within 250 Exercises. Some 460 line diagrams further enhance understanding.

A sample of worked solutions to over 1000 of the further problems has been prepared and can be accessed by lecturers free via the Internet (see below). (Higher Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

At the end of the text, a list of Essential Formulae is included for the convenience of reference. At intervals throughout the text are some 19 Assignments to check to understand.
