Guest More than 1 year ago
This book assumes way too much Physics background, and doesn't explain the Math clearly. The authors state that the prereqs are 'some calculus,' but I think a year of physics or electrical engineering, and multivariable calculus are probably a minimum. Plus the writing style is rambling and incoherent. Get to the point! Summarize sometime! This book is harder than the upper division text I used as a student, and harder than some of the real analysis texts I've used. Also, the emphasis on modeling takes what could be an elegant subject and makes it muddy.
