Here is a textbook of intuitive calculus. The material is presented in a concrete setting with many examples and problems chosen from the social, physical, behavioural and life sciences. Chapters include core material and more advanced optional sections. The book begins with a review of algebra and graphing.
Application-oriented introduction relates the subject as closely as possible to science with explorations of the derivative; differentiation and integration of the powers of x; theorems on differentiation, antidifferentiation; the chain rule; trigonometric functions; more. Examples. 1967 edition.
Written from examination point of view, this textbook provides the basic concepts of calculus to the undergraduate students of all disciplines (Honours courses) other than Mathematics (Hons.) of all Central Universities of India following Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) including University of Delhi. The text follows a student-centric approach which communicates the practical aspects of Mathematics in such a way that it drives out the common fear of learning any mathematical subject. The concepts are properly supported by illustrations followed by several varied types of examples to provide students an integrated view of theory and applications. There are about four hundred examples in this book and the concepts are explained geometrically through numerous figures. A large number of self-practice problems with hints and answers have been added in each chapter to enable students to learn. Most of the questions conform to the examination-style universities of Indian. SALIENT FEATURES • Gives step by step procedure of solving worked problems for better understanding • Includes Chapter Objectives at the beginning of each chapter. • Familiarizes students with the basic techniques of calculus used in analysing the behaviour of a function.
Introducing calculus at the basic level, this text covers hyperreal numbers and hyperreal line, continuous functions, integral and differential calculus, fundamental theorem, infinite sequences and series, infinite polynomials, more. 1979 edition.
Ideal for self-instruction as well as for classroom use, this text improves understanding and problem-solving skills in analysis, analytic geometry, and higher algebra. Over 1,200 problems, with hints and complete solutions. 1963 edition.
Were it not for the calculus, mathematicians would have no way to describe the acceleration of a motorcycle or the effect of gravity on thrown balls and distant planets, or to prove that a man could cross a room and eventually touch the opposite wall. Just how calculus makes these things possible and in doing so finds a correspondence between real numbers and the real world is the subject of this dazzling book by a writer of extraordinary clarity and stylistic brio. Even as he initiates us into the mysteries of real numbers, functions, and limits, Berlinski explores the furthest implications of his subject, revealing how the calculus reconciles the precision of numbers with the fluidity of the changing universe. "An odd and tantalizing book by a writer who takes immense pleasure in this great mathematical tool, and tries to create it in others."--New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.
Silvestre François Lacroix was not a prominent mathematical researcher, but he was certainly a most influential mathematical book author. His most famous work is the three-volume Traité du calcul différentiel et du calcul intégral, which is an encyclopedic appraisal of 18th-century calculus that remained the standard reference on the subject through much of the 19th century. This book provides the first global and detailed study of Lacroix's Traité Traité du calcul.
The calculus has served for three centuries as the principal quantitative language of Western science. In the course of its genesis and evolution some of the most fundamental problems of mathematics were first con fronted and, through the persistent labors of successive generations, finally resolved. Therefore, the historical development of the calculus holds a special interest for anyone who appreciates the value of a historical perspective in teaching, learning, and enjoying mathematics and its ap plications. My goal in writing this book was to present an account of this development that is accessible, not solely to students of the history of mathematics, but to the wider mathematical community for which my exposition is more specifically intended, including those who study, teach, and use calculus. The scope of this account can be delineated partly by comparison with previous works in the same general area. M. E. Baron's The Origins of the Infinitesimal Calculus (1969) provides an informative and reliable treat ment of the precalculus period up to, but not including (in any detail), the time of Newton and Leibniz, just when the interest and pace of the story begin to quicken and intensify. C. B. Boyer's well-known book (1949, 1959 reprint) met well the goals its author set for it, but it was more ap propriately titled in its original edition-The Concepts of the Calculus than in its reprinting.
