A guide to library resources in Mathematical Physics

Once you find a good book in the library catalogue, click on the **subject **links at the bottom of the record to find more items on that topic, e.g.

**Mathematical physics.****Statistical mechanics.****Quantum theory**(used for Quantum mechanics in the catalogue)**Relativity (Physics)****Quantum field theory.****Metric spaces.****Hilbert space.**(used for Hilbert spaces in the catalogue)**Differential equations.**(for Ordinary DE's. Add the words "numerical solutions" for computational methods in ODEs)**Differential equations, Partial.**(for Partial DE's. Add the words "numerical solutions" for computational methods in PDEs)**Laplace transformation.**(used for Laplace transforms in the catalogue. Use Fourier transformations analogously)**Vector analysis.**(used for Vector Calculus in the catalogue)**Functions of complex variables. (**used for complex analysis in the catalogue. Use the corresponding term for titles on real analysis**)**

For applications of statistics in a particular subject or discipline, you can also use the subject name + the term Statistical methods, e.g. Engineering - statistical methods.

Items in the library are shelved by subject using Dewey numbers, for example:

- 514.325 Metric Spaces
- 515.35 Differential Equations, including: -
- 515.63 Vector and Tensor analysis (calculus)
- 515.723 Transforms
- 515.733 Hilbert Spaces
- 515.8 Real Analysis
- 515.9 Complex Analysis
- 530.12 Quantum Mechanics (Quantum theory)
- 530.13 Statistical Mechanics
- 530.14 Field and wave theories
- 530.15 Mathematical Physics

- Browse the shelves at that number, or
- Browse virtually by searching the catalogue by call number.
