Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book derives calculus in the style of a Physicist, but with the understanding and clarity of a Mathematician whose job it is to understand exactly how the mechanism works. In the closing stages of the book we begin to learn how the Physicist's approach eventually fails. It would be great if the author would now write an introductory book in between this one and his "companion to analysis", which explains which problems are being fixed by rigorous analysis as this new analysis is introduced for the first time. Most books on Quantum Mechanics start by describing how the "old theories" break down - perhaps analysis should be taught in this way too - as a story of enlightenment.

A beacon of clarity and purpose amongst the ocean of books published each year on mathematical instruction. Top class effort. I hope that the author and the book become a classic.
