Overview

This book focuses on the requirements of a specific group of readers, structuring the book so that calculus is presented as a single subject rather than a collection of topics. With a user-friendly approach that keeps the reader in mind, the material is organized so that vector calculus is thoroughly covered. Approaches the theoretical aspects of calculus with the belief that, at the introductory level, it is important to understand the geometric basis for theorems and develop an intuitive understanding for the statements of the theorems and their implications. Emphasizes the power of calculus as a tool for modeling complex physical problems in order to present the methods of differentiation and integration as necessary skills needed to solve problems that arise from mathematical models. Excellent as a refresher for those in fields requiring a strong mathematical background.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text for a calculus-based physics course for engineering, science, and mathematics majors, presenting calculus as a single subject rather than a collection of topics. Presents vector calculus and the calculus of real variables as a single subject, and lays a solid mathematical foundation for understanding Newtonian physics, electricity, and magnetism. Emphasis is on the power of calculus as a tool for modeling complex physical problems. Includes boxed theorems, worked examples, and exercises, some requiring calculators and computers.
