note covers the following topics: Series of Functions, Binomial Theorem,
Series Expansion of Functions, Vectors, Complex Functions, Derivatives,
Intergrals, and the Delta Function, Determinants, Matrices, Vector Analysis,
Vector Differentiation and Integration, Integral Theorems and Potential
Theory, Curvilinear Coordinates, Tensor Analysis, Jacobians and Differential
Forms, Vectors in Function Spaces, Gram-Schmidt Orthogonalization and
Operators, Transformations, Invariants, and Matrix Eignevalue Problems,
Hermitian and Normal Matrix Eigenvalue Paroblems, Ordinary Differential
Equations, Second-Order Linear ODEs, Green's Functions.
The main focus of this note is on theoretical
developments rather than elaborating on concrete physical systems, which the
students are supposed to encounter in regular physics courses. Topics covered
includes: Newtonian Mechanics, Lagrangian Mechanics, Hamiltonian Mechanics,
Hilbert Spaces, Operators on Hilbert spaces and Quantum mechanics.

The purpose of the
“Funky” series of documents is to help develop an accurate physical, conceptual,geometric, and pictorial understanding of important physics topics. We focus on
areas that don’t seem to be covered well in most texts. Topics covered includes: Vectors, Green’s
Functions, Complex Analytic Function, Conceptual Linear Algebra, Probability,
Statistics, and Data Analysis, Practical Considerations for Data Analysis,
Numerical Analysis, Fourier Transforms and Digital Signal Processing, Tensors,
Without the Tension, Differential Geometry.
book is intended primarily as a class-book for mathematical students and
as an introduction to the advanced treatises dealing with the subjects of the
different chapters, but since the analysis is kept as simple as possible, It
will be useful for chemists and others who wish to learn the principles of these
This note covers the following topics: Prologue, Free Fall and Harmonic Oscillators, ODEs and SHM, Linear Algebra,
Harmonics - Fourier Series, Function Spaces, Complex Representations, Transform
Techniques, Vector Analysis and EM Waves, Oscillations in Higher Dimensions.
