Applied Mathematics is the application of mathematics professionally in different fields such as science, engineering, business, industry, etc. Mathematics is taught to us from the early stages of our lives it being an important aspect of life.

Following is a list of books on applied mathematics. If you are interested in and understand mathematics, you can go through the following bestsellers related to applied mathematics as a topic and choose one for your study, interest or know more about alcohol.

## The Princeton Companion to Mathematics

This book is edited by Timothy Gowers with associate editors June Barrow-Green and Imre Leader. It was published in 2008 by Princeton University Press.

**Read it For:**- This book is provided with an extensive overview of mathematics.

**Don't Read it For:**- The book is not focused on a particular audience, and probably the best one for mathematics student.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- This book won an Euler Book Prize in 2011 of Mathematical Association of America, which is given annually to the “most outstanding book about mathematics.” You should definitely read this impressive book on the list of 10 best-selling books on applied mathematics.

## In Pursuit of the Travelling Salesman: Mathematics at the Limits of Computation

This book is written by William J. Cook, and gives you amazing insight into applied mathematics and its amazing riddles.

**Read it For:**- This book is one of the most intense books with puzzles in applied mathematics. Through this book William Cook takes a reader on an adventure of mathematics, picking salesman trails in 1800 when Irish mathematician W.R. Hamilton, first defined the problem.

**Don't Read it For:**- This book explains the Machine Theory, its history, and philosophy. You should be aware of the syllabus and methods applied first.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- This book, one of the best books on applied mathematics, explains the nature of complexities and it challenges you to solve mathematics.

## Discrete Mathematics with Application

This book by Susanna S. Epp and Tom A. Jenkins, contains basic formulas and general methods.

**Read it For:**- This book is very good for beginners, gives the basic explanation of certain problems. This book would come handy for math student for because the basis of the math is a base to complexities in mathematics.

**Don't Read it For:**- The book does not explain the complex problems but the basic general solutions

**What makes this book stand out?:**- This book follows additional explanation to certain problems.

## Principle and Techniques of Applied Mathematics

This book by Bernard Friedman is a book on general and applied mathematics. This book explains the principle of mathematics thoroughly and introduces different techniques to solve problems.

**Read it For:**- This book explains how abstract methods of mathematics can be used to solve problems in a systematic manner, with new techniques in applied mathematics.

**Don't Read it For:**- The book is very helpful but the language could be hard for certain reasons.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- The revised version of the book contains current methods of solution, with new reforms along with old methods also.

## Lectures on Applications-Oriented Mathematics

This book by Bernard Friedman includes selected topics on mathematics. Several courses of the book could be used as a principle for certain problems.

**Read it For:**- This book meets the demand of a book containing general mathematics problem which could be applied to a generalized set of problems.

**Don't Read it For:**- The book focuses on general problems, which could come in a number of examinations. So the book is not the best choice for understanding mathematics in its variety of problems. However, this book is still one of the most popular books on applied mathematics.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- Some courses serve as introductions providing motivation for self-study in different areas of Math.

## Foundation of Applied Mathematics

This book is written and edited by Michael D. Greenburg. This book contains a five-part treatment which begins with an exploration of real variable theory, including limit processes, and infinite series. Succeeding section examines variable and linear analysis.

**Read it For:**- This book is focused on the audience of mainly graduate and undergraduate students. The language in the book is user-friendly and very easy to understand.

**Don't Read it For:**- The language of the book is not easy for beginners and is very professional.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- This book is an excellent book for professionally

## Engineering Mathematics: Programmes and Problems

This book is written by K.A. Stroud. It focuses on Technological and engineering applications of mathematics

**Read it For:**- This book is easy in reading thoroughly if you are familiar with applied mathematics. The book covers every possible kind of problem.

**Don't Read it For:**- The book is focused on an audience pursuing Engineering, so the use of language is quite complex.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- This text studies the essential topics of mathematics important for the students of engineering. The new addition of book also contains a probability chapter section at the end of the book.

## Handbook of Applied Mathematics

This book is written by Carl Pearson. This book claims that most of the topics used in applied mathematics in this book can be grouped rather loosely under the term of analysis.

**Read it For:**- This book contains results and techniques used to solve a variety of problems.

**Don't Read it For:**- The reader needs to focus on other books along with this book because this book contains filtered information.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- Each method in this book is made self sufficient according to the reader.

## Methods of Applied Mathematics

This book is written by Francis B. Hildebrand.

**Read it For:**- This book also gives knowledge about a number of mathematical facts and techniques along with shortcuts, which are not commonly treated in mathematics course in advance calculus and are very useful in applied algebraic applications.

**Don't Read it For:**- The book deals with so many mathematical problems but contains not much examples of a single kind of problem.

**What makes this book stand out?:**- This book is a great asset for science student and physicists along with student doing a course in applied mathematics. This book deals with linear algebraic equations, quadratic forms, Hermitian forms, also with problems which includes vectors and matrices.

## Introduction to Applied Mathematics

This book is by renowned mathematician Gilbert Strang

**Read it For:**- This book teaches applied mathematics with clear applications, example and insights of an experienced teacher, Gilbert Strang. This book is very helpful for students of applied mathematics.

**Don't Read it For:**- This book is very helpful but is very lengthy, a thorough study of book would help a reader a lot, but requires an interest in mathematics. But this book would be more helpful for those readers only who have studied basic course in linear algebra
