K.T. Tang received his B.S. in Engineering Physics and M.A. in Mathematics from University of Washington and his Ph.D. in Physics from Columbia University. He did postdoctoral studies in Chemistry at Berkeley and Harvard. He worked as an engineer at Collins Radio Company and Boeing Company. Dr. Tang regards teaching as his calling, although his research accomplishments are also considerable. He authored/co-authored over 130 research papers in professional journals and a monograph "Asymptotic Methods in Quantum Mechanics". He lectured widely in Asia, Europe, and North America. He had been a long-term visiting scientist at Max-Planck-Institut in Goettingen. He is a recipient of a Distinguished U.S. Senior Scientist Award from Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and a Faculty Excellence Award from Pacific Lutheran University where he is Professor of Physics.
From the reviews:
"This volume includes vector analysis, ordinary differential equations, and Laplace transforms. ... The book is certainly well written, examples are very well explained, there are plenty of homework exercises. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and researchers." (R. Solecki, Choice, Vol. 45 (1), 2007)
