"...the authors guide the novice along a careful, well-planned route that provides a pleasing balance between the demands of the mathematics and those of the physics." Mathematical Reviews "...very readable...more emphasis is placed on an intuitive grasp of the subject and a calculational facility than on a rigorous mathematical exposition." Quarterly of Applied MAthematics, Brown University
