Based on the professional experiences of the author and his colleagues, the sample problems and detailed solutions provide a complete roadmap that leads from the problem statement itself all the way to an eventual solution. A useful technical resource, the book identifies "how to calculate it" and "what does that mean", bringing together in one volume an array of definitions and calculations that are either widely scattered throughout, or not available at all, in any of the various other reference materials.
