Stewart's CALCULUS, FOURTH EDITION reflects the same dedication to excellence that characterized the first three editions. It has been revised with dedication, precision, and patient care to further emphasize conceptual understanding.
A phenomenon of the Stewart success is the texts' use in such a wide variety of colleges and universities throughout the world. Just as he teaches to every student in his classes from the most unprepared to the most mathematically gifted, Stewart writes to a range of students - adding the explanations that make ideas come alive as well as the problems that challenge. Stewart's heuristic examples reveal calculus to students. His examples stand out because they are not just models for problem solving or a means of demonstrating techniques - they also encourage students to develop an analytic view of the subject.
In the new edition of this introductory text, Stewart (McMaster U.) presents all topics geometrically, numerically, algebraically, and verbally, for better conceptual understanding by students. Topics include functions and models; derivatives; differential equations; and infinite sequences and series. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He did research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Stewart is currently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field is harmonic analysis. Stewart is the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning Brooks/Cole, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts.
