First British impression
Hi Lubos, just a quick note to say I got my copy of Becker and Schwarz this morning. I have been thumbing through it. It is a beautiful book with a very clear style of presentation. I think the authors have done a great job. Sadly, there are only 24 hours in the day--nowhere near enough time for everything I have to do!--but I still hope to learn much new stuff from this book. Best regards and have a good holiday.
Via Dr. Steve Miller, thanks!
