What's a good, basic introduction to differential equations?

Textbook general, I guess.

>>

I like the book by Aulbach.

>>

simmons is pretty great so far tbqh

>>

I've been recommended these books to learn math:

The Mental Calculator's Handbook

Algebra by Gelfand and Shen

Elementary Geometry from an Advanced Standpoint

Anything you would add or take away?

>>

Don't forget about algebraic topology.

>>

>>7764142

Not only do I not know what that is, the Wikipedia page is filled with terms that I also do not know, but I'll get right on that.

Hold your horses, I was just kidding. If you don't know any math, algebraic topology won't be the endeavour you should pursue any time soon.

Does anyone have a PDF of Electric Machinery and Power System Fundamentals by Stephen Chapman?

>>

>>7766261

yes

Different person. I took a class which dealt in algebraic topology and while I think I got the gist of the basics (at least according to Munkres), I performed horribly on the tests.

It seems absolutely fascinating and worth getting into, I just don't think I have the time.

Anyway I recommend Munkres "Topology" as a good book to read in general.

Schaum books are usually a good start eg http://www.amazon.com/Schaums-Outline-Differential-Equations-Outlines/dp/0071824855/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452166884&sr=8-1&keywords=schaum+differential+equations

Good book to learn about Hilbert Spaces for quantum mechanics?

Most of the books I have looked at are totally over the top ie vastly too much scope and rigor for someone who just wants enough for the physics. Eg I could not give a shit about Lebesque integrals beyond that they are a bit more general than Riemann Integrals. And I am not interested in topology.

Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics I-IV by Reed and Simon

>I could not give a shit about Lebesque integrals beyond that they are a bit more general than Riemann Integrals. And I am not interested in topology.

You need that stuff for physics.

Thank you

>You need that stuff for physics.

You are probably right, eventually I will need it. But I am putting off the evil day for now.
