Cameos for Calculus: Visualization in the First-Year Course by Roger B. Nelsen

By Roger B. Nelsen

A thespian or cinematographer may well outline a cameo as a short visual appeal of a recognized determine, whereas a gemologist or lapidary may possibly outline it as a useful or semiprecious stone. This e-book provides fifty brief improvements or supplementations (the Cameos) for the first-year calculus path within which a geometrical determine in brief seems. a number of the Cameos illustrate mainstream issues resembling the by-product, combinatorial formulation used to compute Riemann sums, or the geometry at the back of many geometric sequence. different Cameos current themes obtainable to scholars on the calculus point yet now not frequently encountered within the direction, similar to the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, the mathematics mean-geometric suggest inequality, and the Euler-Mascheroni constant.

There are fifty Cameos within the ebook, grouped into 5 sections: half I Limits and Differentiation; half II Integration; half III endless sequence; half IV extra subject matters, and half V Appendix: a few Precalculus issues. the various Cameos contain workouts, so suggestions to the entire workouts follows half V. The e-book concludes with References and an Index.

Many of the Cameos are tailored from articles released in journals of the MAA, akin to The American Mathematical Monthly, Mathematics Magazine, and The collage arithmetic Journal. a few come from different mathematical journals, and a few have been created for this booklet. via accumulating the Cameos right into a ebook we are hoping that they are going to be extra obtainable to lecturers of calculus, either to be used within the lecture room and as supplementary explorations for students.

Calculus On Manifolds: A Modern Approach To Classical by Michael Spivak

By Michael Spivak

Publish yr note: First released in 1965

This little booklet is principally serious about these parts of ”advanced calculus” within which the subtlety of the suggestions and strategies makes rigor tricky to achieve at an ordinary point. The process taken the following makes use of user-friendly models of contemporary equipment present in refined arithmetic.

The formal must haves comprise just a time period of linear algebra, a nodding acquaintance with the notation of set conception, and a decent first-year calculus path (one which at the very least mentions the least higher certain (sup) and maximum decrease sure (inf) of a collection of genuine numbers).

Beyond this a definite (perhaps latent) rapport with summary arithmetic may be discovered nearly crucial.

The history of the calculus and its conceptual development : by Carl B Boyer

By Carl B Boyer

This e-book, for the 1st time, presents laymen and mathematicians alike with an in depth photograph of the historic improvement of 1 of the main momentous achievements of the human mind ― the calculus. It describes with accuracy and viewpoint the lengthy improvement of either the fundamental and the differential calculus from their early beginnings in antiquity to their ultimate emancipation within the nineteenth century from either actual and metaphysical principles alike and their ultimate elaboration as mathematical abstractions, as we all know them this present day, outlined by way of formal common sense by way of the assumption of a restrict of an unlimited sequence.
But whereas the significance of the calculus and mathematical research ― the middle of recent arithmetic ― can't be overemphasized, the worth of this primary accomplished serious historical past of the calculus is going a long way past the subject material. This ebook will totally counteract the impact of laymen, and of many mathematicians, that the nice achievements of arithmetic have been formulated from the start in ultimate shape. it is going to provide readers a feeling of arithmetic no longer as a method, yet as a behavior of brain, and serve to bridge the distance among the sciences and the arts. it is going to additionally make abundantly transparent the fashionable realizing of arithmetic via displaying intimately how the techniques of the calculus progressively replaced from the Greek view of the truth and immanence of arithmetic to the revised notion of mathematical rigor constructed through the good nineteenth century mathematicians, which held that any premises have been legitimate as long as they have been in keeping with each other. it'll make transparent the guidelines contributed via Zeno, Plato, Pythagoras, Eudoxus, the Arabic and Scholastic mathematicians, Newton, Leibnitz, Taylor, Descartes, Euler, Lagrange, Cantor, Weierstrass, and so forth within the lengthy passage from the Greek "method of exhaustion" and Zeno's paradoxes to the fashionable suggestion of the restrict autonomous of feel adventure; and light up not just the tools of mathematical discovery, however the foundations of mathematical inspiration as well.
