And absolutely a book in which I in the future again will bee reading, for example just for relaxing.
It's the perfect book for the college math or physics or engineering major who wants to understand the mathematics and the art of approximation.
Learning techniques for approximation allows one to tackle the sort of ill-posed problems one is most likely to encounter in the real-world.
Not really as good as it should have been.
Wish Sarah SIlverman had written it.
She has more STREET SMARTS.
This book is very neat and interesting. However, you must be quite comfortable with calculus to understand it whcih I am not. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Mishal Al-wathiqui
I taught college mathematics for eight years, and studied graduate mathematics for six, and this book is the single best book for the formation of mathematical skill and intuition... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Benjamin G. Jones
This is a great book that any physics, engineer and other scientist should seriously consider purchasing. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Upper
Not exactly what I had hoped for. I got jumped walking home from the bar the other day and let me tell you, though this book might be helpful in theory, it did little to keep me... Read morePublished 16 months ago by Math Thug No More
Finally a book that shows how mathematics is really done. Usually university maths books try to frighten freshmen with epsilon-delta technique and endless formal proofs. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Samuel Martinsson
Started reading this today on my Kindle and never finished. Felt like I was back in grad school. Really expected some common sense ways to come up with quick answers to problems. Read morePublished 21 months ago by A. J. Troglio
In the title I have put in the words ideas and inspiration, because we often in mathematic and physics are looking after smarter, and shorter, ways for solving the problems instead... Read morePublished 24 months ago by Gert Bo Thorgersen
I loved the title of this book and started reading it. Sadly, right on page 3 there's a howler:
"A dimensionally valid comparison would compare like with like: ... Read more
