From the reviews:
"...has a flowing, coherent form and contains nice comments, overviews, and perspectives on the strategy and implementations of the considered procedures, and is concluded with complementary problems. Moreover, at the end of each volume there is a comprehensive and up-to-date bibliography. The work is clearly written and organized so that each chapter can be independently approached." (Zentralblatt für Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete)

"The book is in fact dedicated to a large area of applications. Mathematicians, engineers, and natural scientists will find many interesting results." (Acta Applicandae Mathematicae)
