From the Publisher:

Mathematics students and teachers.

Review:

As a teacher of undergraduate mathematics I found this book to be a valuable resource ... the material is presented in an uncluttered clear style that will enable undergraduates to use the book for reinforcement and/or alternative viewpoints on the mathematics they are learning. The exercises for the reader are about at the right level for an undergraduate and the mathematics covered is not just pure mathematics but essential topics in mathematical physics and probability theory.
