I was not taught anything like this either at university or at school, so I would ask you to provide any links to books/chapters from books/articles from where I can fill this gap in knowledge. I want to be able to understand the above transformations and conduct them on my own, I also would like to cover the whole theory behind this. Also, how large is the volume of theory I have to cover, given that I only made some simple integral calculus at school? Thank you very much. Last edited by skipjack; May 10th, 2017 at 09:08 PM.
