Overview

This is a new, revised edition of this widely known text. All of the basic topics in calculus of several variables are covered, including vectors, curves, functions of several variables, gradient, tangent plane, maxima and minima, potential functions, curve integrals, Green's theorem, multiple integrals, surface integrals, Stokes' theorem, and the inverse mapping theorem and its consequences. The presentation is self-contained, assuming only a knowledge of basic calculus in one variable. Many completely worked-out problems have been included.
