About the Author:

Soo T. Tan has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. "One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts."

Review:

"The examples used in Tan's book are great. The fact that numerous story-type problems are included in each chapter is a good thing."

"Tan's explanations are very precise and thoughtful while at the same time not overburdening the student with overly complicated mathematics. The strongest feature is probably the abundance of exercises."

"The sections in the chapters are in an excellent order, which makes teaching and learning flow easily and smoothly. Each section has appropriate length, plenty of examples, and well-fit exercises, which gives a teacher flexibility of preparing for a lecture."

"The Tan text combines just the right level of rigor, clear explanations, and wide selection of diverse application exercises that makes it the most appropriate freshman level finite mathematics textbook."
