comment Multiple integral differential notation
Thanks for your answer, I know that the $d^3 x$ stands for the volume in all these various coordinate systems, I just chose dimension 3 as an example really. From your answer I can see that you are saying $d^n x$ has nothing to do with higher-order differentials. But I would be interested to know where this comes from and who originally suggested this notation as it is easy to confuse with a higher-order differential.

comment Combinatorial group theory books
I accepted your answer because you suggested a modern text which looks like a nice introduction, and a strategy for then reading Magnus, Karrass and Solitar, but really I would like to accept all the answers as very helpful!
