This book is being made available free of charge, in the hope that it can help students, engineers and scientists around the world. Please note that the book was originally published in 1982, so some of the material is dated. If there is enough interest, a second edition may be written in the future to include modern developments.
The full text version is best suited for modern computers
with large Random Access Memories (RAM) and fast central processing units
(CPU). The "hidden text" version can be searched for key words

separate files for each chapter is best suited for computers that have slower
CPU or smaller RAM. You are welcome to download and print the textbook or
