Mathematical Physics  
After many years, I have finished a graduate level textbook and reference work on mathematical physics with the mundane title
"Introduction to Mathematical Physics". The important new feature of
this book is the introduction of differential forms and other
geometrical concepts early on (in chapter 3). There are also
introductions to nonlinear problems, and to group theory, and
a reduced emphasis on the special functions that arise in the
solution of Laplace's equation and its relatives.
The book is published by WileyVCH. The table of contents and a complete chapter 1 can be downloaded from the Wiley web site. Also the index, if you follow the link to the online version of the book. You can also read much of the book online through Google(R). If you Google(R) on "Introduction to Mathematical Physics" Vaughn an early link will be to the Google books site. The book is also available from the usual online booksellers. A collection of problem solutions (not complete) for instructors who adopt the book for a course is available from the publisher. There is a page of errata for the book. Please email me questions, comments, corrections and any other feedback.  

This is a work under construction. If you are missing something, please send me email.
