Our aim in this book is to introduce you to some mathematical applications that you will encounter in intermediate and advanced undergraduate courses in classical mechanics, electromagnetism, and quantum physics. To provide physical contexts in which to set these applications, we shall draw on a few familiar concepts from your general physics course. In this first chapter, we review these concepts, work some examples, and give you some exercises at the end of the chapter to help refresh your memory about them.
