Mathematics for Physicists and Engineers.

Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).

The text is a report of the OEEC Seminar on "The Mathematical Knowledge Required by the Physicist and Engineer" held in Paris, 1961. There are twelve major papers presented: (1) An American Parallel (describes the work of the Panel on Physical Sciences and Engineering of the Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics of the Mathematical Association of America); (2) New Look in School Mathematics (reforms which seem desirable in secondary school mathematics); (3) Emphasis on Imaginative Thinking (in secondary school mathematics); (4) Psychological Factors in Teaching (for more effective grasp of concepts and the creative approach); (5) The Teaching of Mathematics in Preparatory Classes for Institutes of Engineering; (6) Common Mathematical Principles in Engineering and Technology; (7) Mathematics Required in the Study of Telecommunications; (8) The Mathematical Training of Mechanical Engineers; (9) Mathematical Knowledge Required for Chemistry; (10) Teaching Mathematics to Physicists; (11) Mathematics for Engineers who Design and use Electronic Computers; and (12) Mathematics in Theoretical and Applied Autonomics.
