Summary:
"Before students can advance to the study of quantum mechanics, they must master a potential stumbling block - the physics of oscillations and waves. While many treatments of this mathematically complex subject leave students confused, Ingram Bloch's new test offers an especially accessible introduction that fully explains requisite mathematical techniques in the context of actual physical problems.
