Reviews

"Examples are excellent. They cover a wide range of physics problems." - Bing Zhou, University of Michigan "The ideas are communicated very well and it is easy to understand...It has a more modern treatment than most, has a very complete range of topics and each is treated in sufficient detail....I'm not aware of another better book at this level..." -Gary Wysin, Kansas State University
