This book presents a formal approach to perturbation methods. No previous knowledge of asymptotic analysis is assumed. Many of the essential concepts are presented in the simpler context of algebraic and ordinary differential equations. While the book used mathematics it is not a pure mathematics one: no attempt has been made to make the arguments fully rigorous. In general the author explains, with the help of physical examples, why the results are correct. The author has managed to present the theory and techniques underlying such methods in a manner which will give the text wide appeal to readers from a broad range of disciplines. (Zentralblatt)
