Mathematical Methods for Physicists is a one-semester course, emphasizing more

advanced mathematical techniques for research explorations:

(1) tensor analysis (chap 26)

(2) group theory (chap 28,29)

(3) probability (chap 30)

(4) statistics (chap 31)

It is important to maintain the balance between mathematical rigor and hands-on

applications. While numerical methods are not listed explicitly, it will be

integrated into other modules to facilitate complementary usage of analytic and

numeric techniques.
