What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Concise presentation (without proofs), mindfulness of differing mathematical backgrounds (avoidance of special terminology when possible), and emphasis on practical aspects (formulas, problems, methods, and laws that occur frequently in engineering applications) contribute to the usefulness of this single-volume reference. Many sections are self contained; subsections are arranged in increasing order of complexity; and a bibliography is included for each chapter. …
