From the Author
Writing a technical book on such a complex technical subject is not easy. It's difficult to include enough technical detail to provide background but not so much that you confuse most readers. Having taught many courses on this subject, we have a good idea of what is relevant to cover and what students want and need to know. We have tried to include the relevant material, arrange it in a logical manner, and write in a style that is both understandable and enjoyable.
