Calculus: One-variable calculus, with an introduction to linear algebra

Front Cover
Wiley, 1967 - Mathematics - 688 pages
14 Reviews
Now available in paperback! An introduction to the calculus, with an excellent balance between theory and technique. Integration is treated before differentiation--this is a departure from most modern texts, but it is historically correct, and it is the best way to establish the true connection between the integral and the derivative. Proofs of all the important theorems are given, generally preceded by geometric or intuitive discussion. This Second Edition introduces the mean-value theorems and their applications earlier in the text, incorporates a treatment of linear algebra, and contains many new and easier exercises. As in the first edition, an interesting historical introduction precedes each important new concept.

Review: Calculus, Volume 1: One-Variable Calculus with an Introduction to Linear Algebra

User Review  - Frank Palardy - Goodreads

I used this book to refresh my Calculus. It's not easy. There are some newer books that are probably easier. I felt he covered everything, which is what you want. If there were any flaws I didn't notice. Read full review
