PREFACE
This tenth edition of Introductory Mathematical Analysis continues to provide a mathematical foundation for students in business, economics, and the life and social sciences. It begins with noncalculus topics such as equations, functions, matrix algebra, linear programming, mathematics of finance, and probability. Then it progresses through both singlevariable and multivariable calculus, including continuous random variables. Technical proofs, conditions, and the like are sufficiently described but are not overdone. At times, informal intuitive arguments are given to preserve clarity.
Applications
An abundance and variety of applications for the intended audience appear throughout the book; students continually see how the mathematics they are learning can be used. These applications cover such diverse areas as business, economics, biology, medicine, sociology, psychology, ecology, statistics, earth science, and archaeology. Many of these realworld situations are drawn from literature and are documented by references. In some, the background and context are given in order to stimulate interest. However, the text is virtually selfcontained, in the sense that it assumes no prior exposure to the concepts on which the applications are based.
Changes to the Tenth Edition
Chapter Openers
New to the tenth edition, Chapter Openers appear at the beginning of every chapter, including the Concepts for Calculus appendix (see below). Each Chapter Opener presents a reallife application of the mathematics in the chapter. This new element gives students an intuitive introduction to the topics presented in the chapter.
Expanded Concepts for Calculus Appendix
Expanded for the tenth edition, this useful endoftext appendix features calculus topics for student review. This appendix contains applications of calculus that can be understood before students have studied formal calculus.
Updated and Expanded Mathematical Snapshots
For the tenth edition, this popular feature has been expanded to appear at the end of Chapters 0 through 19. Each snapshot provides an interesting, and at times, novel application involving the mathematics of the chapter in which it occurs. Each of the snapshots includes exercises reinforcing the texts strong emphasis on handson practice. The final exercise in each snapshot involves questions that are suitable for group discussion.
Suggested Chapter Review Tests
In the Review Problems of Chapters 1 through 19, selected problems are marked as suitable for the students to use as practice tests to gauge their mastery of the chapter material. All test items are oddnumbered problems, so that students can check their work against the answers at the back of the text.
Retained Features
Interspersed throughout the text are many warnings to the student that point out commonly made errors. These warnings are indicated under the heading Pitfall. Definitions are clearly stated and displayed. Key concepts, as well as important rules and formulas, are boxed to emphasize their importance. Throughout the text, notes to the student are placed in the margin. They reflect passing comments which supplement discussions.
More than 850 examples are worked out in detail. Some include a strategy that is specifically designed to guide the student through the logistics of the solution before the solution is obtained.
An abundant number of diagrams (almost 500) and exercises (more than 5000) are included. In each exercise set, grouped problems are given in increasing order of difficulty. In many exercise sets the problems progress from the basic mechanicaldrill type to more interesting thoughtprovoking problems. Many realworld type problems with real data are included. Considerable effort has been made to produce a proper balance between the drilltype exercises and the problems requiring the integration of the concepts learned. Many of the exercises have been updated or revised.
In order that a student appreciates the value of current technology, optional graphics calculator material appears throughout the text both in the exposition and exercises. It appears for a variety of reasons: as a mathematical tool, to visualize a concept, as a computing aid, and to reinforce concepts. Although calculator displays for a TI83 accompany the corresponding technology discussion, our approach is general enough so that it can be applied to other fine graphics calculators.
In the exercise sets, graphics calculator problems are indicated by an icon. To provide flexibility for an instructor in planning assignments, these problems are placed at the end of an exercise set.
The Principles in Practice element provides students with even more applications. Located in the margins of Chapters 1 through 19, these additional exercises give students realworld applications and more opportunities to see the chapter material put into practice. An icon indicates Principles in Practice applications that can be solved using a graphics calculator. Answers to Principles in Practice applications appear at the end of the text.
Each chapter (except Chapter 0) has a review section that contains a list of important terms and symbols, a chapter summary, and numerous review problems.
Answers to oddnumbered problems appear at the end of the book. For many of the differentiation problems, the answers appear in both unsimplified and simplified forms. This allows students to readily check their work.
Course Planning
Because instructors plan a course outline to serve the individual needs of a particular class and curriculum, we shall not attempt to provide sample outlines. However, depending on the background of the students, some instructors will choose to omit Chapter 0, Algebra Refresher, or Chapter 1, Equations. Others may exclude the topics of matrix algebra and linear programming. Certainly there are other sections that may be omitted at the discretion of the instructor. As an aid to planning a course outline, perhaps a few comments may be helpful. Section 2.1 introduces some business terms, such as total revenue, fixed cost, variable cost and profit. Section 4.2 introduces the notion of supply and demand equations, and Section 4.6 discusses the equilibrium point. Optional sections, which will not cause problems if they are omitted, are: 7.3, 7.5, 15.4, 17.1, 17.2, 19.4, 19.6, 19.9 and 19.10. Section 17.8 may be omitted if Chapter 18 is not covered.
