Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

  • $\begingroup$ The derivation in the Wikipedia article you referenced is fairly standard. If you’re looking for a completely different approach, check out the 2005 paper by Robert Jaffe, listed as reference 12. $\endgroup$ – G. Smith Feb 11 at 6:56
