This book may be used by students and professionals in physics and engineering that have completed first-year calculus and physics. An introductory chapter reviews algebra, trigonometry, units and complex numbers that are frequently used in physics. Examples using MATLAB and Maple for symbolic and numerical calculations in physics with a variety of plotting features are included in all 16 chapters. The book applies many of mathematical concepts covered in Chapters 1-9 to fundamental physics topics in mechanics, electromagnetics; quantum mechanics and relativity in Chapters 10-16. Companion files are included with MATLAB and Maple worksheets and files, and all of the figures from the text.
