"The reader’s ability to tackle mathematical problems can be significantly enhanced after reading this book. …This book can be used as a reference text for almost all college students, both undergraduates and graduates, in almost all disciplines that require certain levels of applied mathematics. This book will be a good desktop reference for many who have graduated from college and are still involved in solving mathematical problems in their jobs. A lot of MATLAB function designed by the authors and some third-party free toolboxes are also presented in the book."
