About the Book:
This book gives a comprehensive account of mathematical physics, assigning a prominent role to the applications of the relevant mathematics to specific parts of physics ranging overfluid mechanics, electromagnetic theory, special relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum optics, random processes, linear response theory, scattering theory, and so on. Rather than emphasising formal proofs of propositions, the results are motivated, stated, elaborated and remarked upon. Their inter-relationships and connections are brought out, and several of their applications are discussed in some detail. There are about 370 exercises and problems interspersed in the text itself at appropriate junctures, so as to facilitate the logical flow of the material without interruption. Wherever applicable, solutions to the problems, or answers with hints as to how to arrive at them, along with relevant remarks, are given at the end of each chapter. This book can also be used as a wide-ranging and fairly self-contained text for self-study, and will be well received by students of physics at all levels (senior undergraduate, masters and doctoral), as well as those who are now teachers of the subject.

About the Author:
V. Balakrishnan joined the Indian Institute of Technology Madras as a professor of physics in 1980, and retired as Professor Emeritus in 2013. He was educated at the University of Delhi and Brandeis University, USA, from where he got his PhD in theoretical particle physics in 1970. He joined IIT Madras after working for a decade at TIFR (Mumbai) and RRC, DAE (Kalpakkam). His research interests have spanned many areas over the years, including particle physics, many-body theory, condensed matter physics, stochastic processes, quantum dynamics, nonlinear dynamics and chaos. He has published numerous research papers in these areas and a number of popular pedagogic articles. He has co-authored a monograph titled Beyond the Crystalline State and authored a monograph titled Elements of Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics. Over nearly four decades, Dr. Balakrishnan has taught a wide variety of extremely popular courses at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels, comprising all the standard subjects in physics, as well as some new, non-traditional ones. He has received high accolades for his teaching at I IT Madras, and his lectures at numerous courses sponsored by the UGC, DST (SERC) and ICTP (Trieste, Italy) have been well-received by their attendees. His video lecture courses under the auspices of the NPTEL programme of the HRD Ministry (available on YouTube) have received very high acclaim. Dr. Balakrishnan has held visiting positions at several institutions abroad. He is a Fellow of the Indian Academ of Sciences.
