Unfortunately, this book is mostly a collection of formulas that generalize well known calculus results.
All motivation looks overstated. The book does not answer the main question: Why a scientist should learn this huge set of formulas?
In my opinion, some of the topics are not that empty. For example, q-deformed oscillator algebra has real and beautiful applications in mathematical physics but I did not find anything like that in this book.

Wonderful book and actually somewhat easy to understand2015年3月2日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Got this from my library, but just had to say it here. Wonderful book and actually somewhat easy to understand, and I'm not even a math major (Electrical engineering, physics minor, sophomore). It's really a shame this isn't emphasized more in university math courses (Only a few of my school's math professors had even heard of it and my engineering professors thought I was talking crazy) because it's really cool and gives a great new way to think about it, and some really neat ways to make some problems that I run into in my EE classes much clearer.
