This book needs your help[edit]

Anyone who has a good working knowledge of the subjects covered by this book can help.

We aim to keep the material self-contained and rigorous, but accessible. It might help to think of mathematics as an exploration. Rather than a single directed, linear journey, we want to get a good working knowledge of the mathematical terrain. Each section sets out on a journey not far from somewhere we have already been, and it builds up principle by principle a map of the new terrain being surveyed until that new terrain becomes wholly familiar.
