Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Inaugurating a series of textbooks to be published by The Metallurgical Society of AIME, this handbook reviews the basic principles of physical chemistry, linear algebra, and statistics which are required to enable practicing engineers to determine material and energy balances. It also includes enough worked examples and suggestions for additional reading so that novices in the field can obtain the necessary skills for making material and energy balances. Some of the mathematical techniques of use when a computer is available are also presented. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
