About The Book

In the present edition of the book, the subject matter has been thoroughly revised and enlarged not only to cover the latest syllabi of the various Indian Universities, but a lot of attention has been paid keeping in view the requirements of the students, appearing in different national and state level competitive examinations, e.g., NET/JRF, GATE, etc. Further, a sufficient number of problems (solved and unsolved) and objective type questions have been added so that the aspiring students may have a good practice and develop a good insight in the subject. With these improvements, the present form of the book is expected relatively more useful for the student community.
