Zentralblatt MATH DatabaseThere is a law, if not a physical law, that ensures that whenever one is using a standard mathematical technique for a physical problem it is always the special case or a first principles argument that is required. Nothing is straightforward! For such a situation this book is ideal. It presents clear definitions and the rationale for such definitions. The style of the book is very readable and an interesting biographical asides of the mathematicians associated with the topics provide light relief from the depth of the the analysis. The book is both a valuable reference book and is a good pedagogic treatment of mathematical physics. It is a book that should be on many bookshelves.
