A very nice book

by Subbu.sirsi (WorldCat user published 2010-05-19) Excellent Permalink

The book is designed in a very nice way. Even to a layman with a little mathematical knowledge, the book can be an easy reading and exciting. The book is suggestible even to those who want to pursue research in the topic.
