Description

A NEW APPROACH TO CALCULUS THAT BETTER ENABLES STUDENTS TO PROGRESS TO MORE ADVANCED COURSES AND APPLICATIONS

Calculus and Analysis: A Combined Approach bridges the gap between mathematical thinking skills and advanced calculus topics by providing an introduction to the key theory for understanding and working with applications in engineering and the sciences. Through a modern approach that utilizes fully calculated problems, the book addresses the importance of calculus and analysis in the applied sciences, with a focus on differential equations.

Differing from the common classical approach to the topic, this book presents a modern perspective on calculus that follows motivations from Otto Toeplitz's famous genetic model. The result is an introduction that leads to great simplifications and provides a focused treatment commonly found in the applied sciences, particularly differential equations. The author begins with a short introduction to elementary mathematical logic. Next, the book explores the concept of sets and maps, providing readers with a strong foundation for understanding and solving modern mathematical problems. Ensuring a complete presentation, topics are uniformly presented in chapters that consist of three parts:

  • Introductory Motivations presents historical mathematical problems or problems arising from applications that led to the development of mathematical solutions

  • Theory provides rigorous development of the essential parts of the machinery of analysis; proofs are intentionally detailed, but simplified as much as possible to aid reader comprehension

  • Examples and Problems promotes problem-solving skills through application-based exercises that emphasize theoretical mechanics, general relativity, and quantum mechanics

Calculus and Analysis: A Combined Approach is an excellent book for courses on calculus and mathematical analysis at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also a valuable resource for engineers, physicists, mathematicians, and anyone working in the applied sciences who would like to master their understanding of basic tools in modern calculus and analysis.
