An early transcendental approach, with combined coverage of exponential and trigonometric functions, distinguishes this bestselling text. Clear prose enhances the mathematically precise, example-driven treatment that is designed for engineering, science, and mathematics students on one year courses. Features: * Wide variety of applications from different fields, many unique to Ellis/Gulick, helps students perceive calculus realistically and supports the math presented. * Geometric and intuitive motivation introduces concepts, enabling students to understand subsequent definitions and theorems. * Clear but informal topic development with numerous worked examples and nearly 900 illustrations. * Students learn problem-solving skills and master concepts with plentiful graded exercises and applications. Cumulative exercises at the ends of chapters reinforce the main ideas of previous material. New to this edition: * Early coverage of exponential and logarithmic finctions builds on students' algebra knowledge, increases the variety of applications available early in the course, and corresponds to graphing calculator functions. * Marked graphing calculator exercises in the text and a special supplement of examples, programs, and exercises make incorporating technology easy. * Boxed marginal sidebars featuring historical, biographical, and real-life anecdotes pique student interest and make calculus human. * Calculus reform issues are emphasized through a focus on approxiamation, numerical methods, and graphical interpretations. * Early presentation of exponential growth and decay provides students mith multiple contexts for intrpreting the first derivative. * Early introduction to differential equations reflects the importance of calculus in engineering and physics to model real-life phenomena. * Topics for Discussion questions provide students with the opportunity to develop critical thinking, writing, and/or group skills.

Professor Robert Ellis received his undergraduate degree at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and his Ph.D. from Duke University. Since 1966 he has been on the faculty at the University of Maryland, teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses and doing research in the areas of functional analysis and operator theory. In 1972 he received a U.S. Senior Scientist award from the Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation.
Professor Denny Gulick received his undergraduate degree at Oberlin College, and his Ph.D. from Yale University. He has taught at the University of Maryland since 1965. His interests were formerly in abstract functional analysis, and more recently his interests turned to chaos and fractals. He is also involved in issues of mathematics education. In 2000 he received the Campus Kirwan Prize for Undergraduate Education.
