Differential and Integral Calculus, Volume 1, 2nd Edition

Richard Courant

ISBN: 978-0-471-60842-4 February 1988 640 Pages


The classic introduction to the fundamentals of calculus

Richard Courant's classic text Differential and Integral Calculus is an essential text for those preparing for a career in physics or applied math. Volume 1 introduces the foundational concepts of "function" and "limit", and offers detailed explanations that illustrate the "why" as well as the "how". Comprehensive coverage of the basics of integrals and differentials includes their applications as well as clearly-defined techniques and essential theorems. Multiple appendices provide supplementary explanation and author notes, as well as solutions and hints for all in-text problems.
