  • The original motivation for writing this book was rather personal. The first author, in the course of his teaching career in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS), University of Cambridge, and St John’s College, Cambridge, had many painful experiences when good (or even brilliant) students, who were interested in the subject of mathematics and its applications and who performed well during their first academic year, stumbled or nearly failed in the exams.

They are occasionally paid when a contractor has performed very much to the satisfaction of the employer but has shouldered some extra cost clearly not attributable to his own actions, such as exception- ally bad weather or some other misfortune outside his control. Only the employer can decide to make an ex-contractual payment, not the engineer or other person acting on his behalf; and the employer must himself have power to make the payment.
