(Now available from Springer. Order you very own copy NOW!)

You can see the table of contents on James Sneyd's web site for this book.

Here is a list of the errors in the first edition that I have found so far is found this .pdf file However (trumpets!!!) The second edition is now available

The list of errors in the second edition is growing rapidly (unfortunately). Let me know of additional errors that you find.

A preliminary list of solutions for the second edition is available on request. This is a preliminary document and I guarantee absolutely nothing. However, if you find errors or want to contribute additional solutions to some of the problems, send them my way and I will add them. In time maybe this will turn into a useful document.
