Mathematics is an essential ingredient in the education of a student of mathematics or physics of a professional physicist, indeed in the education of any professional scientist or engineer. The purpose of Mathematical Physics is to provide a comprehensive study of the mathematics underlying theoretical physics at the level of graduate and postgraduate students and also have enough depth for others interested in higher level mathematics relevant to specialized fields. It is also intended to serve the research scientist or engineer who needs a quick refresher course in the subject. The Fourth Edition of the book has been thoroughly revised and updated keeping in mind the requirements of students and the latest UGC syllabus.

Since the first edition was published in 1993, MRI inPractice has become the standard text for radiographers,technologists, radiology residents, radiologists and even salesrepresentatives on the subject of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).This text is essential reading on undergraduate and postgraduateMRI courses. Furthermore MRI in Practice has come to beknown as the number one reference book and study guide in the areasof MR instrumentation, principles, pulse sequences, imageacquisition, and imaging parameters for the advanced levelexamination for MRI offered by the American Registry for RadiologicTechnologists (ARRT) in the USA. The book explains in clear terms the theory that underpinsmagnetic resonance so that the capabilities and operation of MRIsystems can be fully appreciated and maximised. This fourth editioncaptures recent advances, and coverage includes: parallel imagingtechniques and new sequences such as balanced gradient echo. Building on the success of the first three editions, the fourthedition has been fully revised and updated.
