Product description

In all cases, proofs, derivations, theory and worked examples are given in full, so that the interested reader can follow them through step-by-step.;In addition to worked examples, all the chapters contain self test questions (STQ), which are designed to enable the reader to check understanding before moving on to study another topic.
