This eighth edition is seeing the light of day less than four years after the publication of the seventh edition. During that time, the pace of change in this field continues unabated. In this new edition, I try to capture these changes while maintaining a broad and comprehensive coverage of the entire field.
To begin the process of revision, the seventh edition of this book was extensively reviewed by a number of professors who teach the subject.The result is that, in many places, the narrative has been clarified and tightened, and illustrations have been improved.
Also, a number of new “field-tested” problems have been added. Beyond these refinements to improve pedagogy and user friendliness, there have been major substantive changes throughout the book. Every chapter has been revised, new chapters have been added, and the overall organization of the book has changed.
