UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "Review from previous edition "...classic book...The book succeeds as an exceptionally well written test fot its intended audience...No doubt one of its strongest features is over 500 problems...throughout the entire book only important physical processes are described... The new edition is greatly enhanced...I strongly recommend that you take a look. The presentation is exquisitely straightforward with numerous physically interesting examples, and it is carefully and well written""--SIAM
