The typesetting is poor within the kindle edition:
1) Equations seem as a (low caliber) test- they're relatively grey and the solution is undesirable. this can be a challenge for sub/superscripts in particular.
2) the maths symbols within the textual content fluctuate greatly in caliber; a few are thoroughly pointed out and handled as textual content, yet others as scanned photographs- even in the similar equation. this can be a challenge as the scanned elements usually are not coated up with the text-like symbols, making issues seem as sub/superscripts once they are usually not. additionally, always, correct brackets (<) are thrice the peak of different issues, together with | and left brackets (>), which makes Dirac's notation tricky to learn in a glance.
