Classroom-tested and lucidly written, Multivariable Calculus gives a thorough and rigoroustreatment of differential and integral calculus of functions of several variables. Designed as ajunior-level textbook for an advanced calculus course, this book covers a variety of notions,including continuity , differentiation, multiple integrals, line and surface integrals, differentialforms, and infinite series. Numerous exercises and examples throughout the book facilitatethe student's understanding of important concepts.The level of rigor in this textbook is high; virtually every result is accompanied by a proof. Toaccommodate teachers' individual needs, the material is organized so that proofs can be deemphasizedor even omitted. Linear algebra for n-dimensional Euclidean space is developedwhen required for the calculus; for example, linear transformations are discussed for the treatmentof derivatives.Featuring a detailed discussion of differential forms and Stokes' theorem, Multivariable Calculusis an excellent textbook for junior-level advanced calculus courses and it is also usefulfor sophomores who have a strong background in single-variable calculus. A two-year calculussequence or a one-year honor calculus course is required for the most successful use of thistextbook. Students will benefit enormously from this book's systematic approach to mathematicalanalysis, which will ultimately prepare them for more advanced topics in the field.

This self-contained textbook gives a thorough exposition of multivariable calculus. The emphasis is on correlating general concepts and results of multivariable calculus with their counterparts in one-variable calculus. Further, the book includes genuine analogues of basic results in one-variable calculus, such as the mean value theorem and the fundamental theorem of calculus. This book is distinguished from others on the subject: it examines topics not typically covered, such as monotonicity, bimonotonicity, and convexity, together with their relation to partial differentiation, cubature rules for approximate evaluation of double integrals, and conditional as well as unconditional convergence of double series and improper double integrals. Each chapter contains detailed proofs of relevant results, along with numerous examples and a wide collection of exercises of varying degrees of difficulty, making the book useful to undergraduate and graduate students alike.
Offering a concise collection of MatLab programs and exercises to accompany a third semester course in multivariable calculus, A MatLab Companion for Multivariable Calculus introduces simple numerical procedures such as numerical differentiation, numerical integration and Newton's method in several variables, thereby allowing students to tackle realistic problems.

Written for mathematics, science, and engineering majors who have completed the traditional two-term course in single variable calculus, Multivariable Calculus bridges the gap between mathematical concepts and their real-world applications outside of mathematics. The ideas of multivariable calculus are presented in a context that is informed by their non-mathematical applications. It incorporates collaborative learning strategies and the sophisticated use of technology, which asks students to become active participants in the development of their own understanding of mathematical ideas. This teaching and learning strategy urges students to communicate mathematically, both orally and in writing. With extended examples and exercises and a student-friendly accessible writing style, Multivariable Calculus is an exciting and engaging journey into mathematics relevant to students everyday lives.

Multivariable Calculus with Linear Algebra and Series presents a modern, but not extreme, treatment of linear algebra, the calculus of several variables, and series. Topics covered range from vectors and vector spaces to linear matrices and analytic geometry, as well as differential calculus of real-valued functions. Theorems and definitions are included, most of which are followed by worked-out illustrative examples. Comprised of seven chapters, this book begins with an introduction to linear equations and matrices, including determinants. The next chapter deals with vector spaces and linear transformations, along with eigenvalues and eigenvectors. The discussion then turns to vector analysis and analytic geometry in R3; curves and surfaces; the differential calculus of real-valued functions of n variables; and vector-valued functions as ordered m-tuples of real-valued functions. Integration (line, surface, and multiple integrals) is also considered, together with Green's and Stokes's theorems and the divergence theorem. The final chapter is devoted to infinite sequences, infinite series, and power series in one variable. This monograph is intended for students majoring in science, engineering, or mathematics.
