**A Mathematics Primer for Physics Graduate Students**

by Andrew E. Blechman

2007**Number of pages**: 78

**Description**:

The author summarizes most of the more advanced mathematical trickery seen in electrodynamics and quantum mechanics in simple and friendly terms with examples. Mathematical tools such as tensors or differential forms, intended to make the calculations much simpler, are covered in this text.
