I wrote this text for a one semester course at the sophomore-junior level. Our experience with students
taking our junior physics courses is that even if they’ve had the mathematical prerequisites, they usually need
more experience using the mathematics to handle it eﬃciently and to possess usable intuition about the processes
involved. If you’ve seen inﬁnite series in a calculus course, you may have no idea that they’re good for anything.
