Media reviews
The strength of this volume lies in the diversity of topics that it covers. The individual chapters are balanced discussing general ideas and theory at a level that is accessible to graduates and advanced undergraduates ... The book is easy to read and one can start almost at any page. This is the kind of book that I would like to see in each lab and being made available to all graduate students.
