From the reviews:
"Dahotre and Harimkar ... have prepared a comprehensive, well-written reference on laser machining. ... The authors have successfully balanced the principles and physics of thermal processes with sufficient applied mathematics that does not overwhelm the reader. A fair knowledge of partial differential equations with emphasis on the diffusion equation in semi-infinite domains is helpful. The book provides an up-to-date bibliography that is immensely helpful for researchers in laser fabrications, ranging from macroscales to nanoscales. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and above." (R. N. Laoulache, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (10), June, 2008)
