Recently, someone described a 10-volume mathematics textbook series to me. The books were written by a single author, an engineer with a name that sounded Greek, and came with full worked solutions to every single problem, making them ideal for self study. Unfortunately, they could not remember its title, and my attempts to find it with Google and Amazon have failed. Has anyone come across this series?
