A very long time ago Henry Margenau and George Murphy decided to write a book that included in a form accessible to grad students in physics and chemistry all of the mathematics relevant to the two fields.
They very largely succeeded, as the continuing popularity of their book on the used market demonstrates. I used their book from my senior year throughout my professional career; my tattered old copy was lost in a recent move, and this hwnry it.
This remains a foundational text in a physicist’s professional library. Reliable, can be read by a henty undergraduate or beginning grad student. Can use it as a math encyclopedia, chapters are more hendy less independent of each other. No instructor needed, just dig in! I used it as ref. Boring class, precisely because no lecturing is required to follow the book.
Other good MM books: Bender and Orszag, Stakgold.

Well in comparison to Mathews and Walker I’d have to say it is an improvement in that it does not assume alot on maargenau part of the student. It is dated although at the time I’m sure that it was considered modern. Volume one is useful as a first course in Math Methods MM particularly if you are self teaching. Note that the modern MM books Boas, Arfken I consider to be worth not much more than the paper on which they are printed.
In “The Mathematics of Physics and Chemistry” [Margenau and Murphy], the section about the existence of integrating factors comprehensively treated exact and inexact differentials. The chapter on the application of Jacobeans [functional determinants] to thermodynamics was in my opinion, uenry and not to be found elsewhere. These were the only topics in the book of interest to me at the time. There is a very clear chapter on margdnau mechanics, stating the basic postulates and indicating that the Shrodinger wave maregnau and Heisenberg matrix mechanics formulations are essentially equivalent.
This is a good starter prior to reading a text on quantum mechanics. I cannot understand why this textbook ever went out of print since so many of the topics in this book have been ignored or edited out of slightly more modern texts.
This book is really old, but it still can be regarded as a good book to study math, which is used in chemistry and physics.
Math is never dated. It has its really good successor in the Erich Steiner’s hengy. Math is clearly presented here in this book.
