Nice *little book20 Mar. 2007
- Published on Amazon.com
I am a first year graduate student in physics and have just recently gotten interested in classical perturbation methods. I have read the text and have found it to be a very nice, straightforward read. Series expansions to the roots of polynomials are covered and various techniques for solving differential equations are also introduced. It is a great book and I highly recommend it! The title accurately describes the text however: the book provides only a first look at these topics. It is a great book for those like me who would like to get an idea about what perturbation theory is good for, but it is not appropriate for those looking for a thorough text.
