A.J.M. Spencer: Engineering Mathematics Volume I

Published $1977$, Van Nostrand Reinhold.


Summary

Often referred to as Spencer et al, this work was written as a collaboration of nine: A.J.M. Spencer, D.F. Parker, D.S. Berry, A.H. England, T.R. Faulkner, W.A. Green, J.T. Holden, D. Middleton and T.G. Rogers.

From the preface:

"Each chapter was first drafted by one or two authors, read and checked by several others, and then discussed and amended until a mutually agreed version was produced. The text is therefore a truly collaborative effort; no part of it is the sole work of any individual, and we share responsibility for the whole."

Be that as it may, Spencer's name is the first on the list.


The author of this page used this book to good effect in his undergraduate days.
