Some of the most talented programmers I work with are EE or physics guys.
You can redefine the functions w/ your own.
This is a road fraught with peril, likely because the people that implemented the original functions are the same ones that made crappy language choices that prevent new functions from being used effectively, so it's possible to both paper over issues, conveniently in the short term, and simultaneously creating more issues in the long-term.
1. Establish a clear goal and sub-goals.
2. Use the goals to determine the scope of your reading.
3. Allocate quite a bit of time in large chunks.
4. Identify key layers of abstraction.
5. Enumerate classes (functions, namespaces) of interest.
6. Systematically, read through each class superficially.
7. Pick 8 classes to focus on.
8. Do a deep dive.
9. List/sketch inputs and outputs in terms of function names, types referenced.
10. Look at relevant tests for usage as needed.
11. Check off each class once looked through.
12. Measure the complexity of a component by how many checks are required for full understanding.
13. Iterate until goals achieved.
