    This book is the derivative result of an experiment where a number of texts in various subjects were published by a commercial press under a Creative Commons license. This license is a form of copyright which allows others to modify (we hope improve) and share the book as long as there is proper attribution. All of the material in LibreTexts has such a copyright.

    So who wrote the course? Or a book depending on your point of view? There is no underlying text to this particular work, it is written in the standard way of using multiple references, creative commons resources, public domain resources, and widely known engineering techniques, ideas, and procedures.

    Scott Johnson, Josh Halpern and Scott Sinex
