This book gives a clear presentation of calculus with applications to engineering and the sciences. Emphasis is placed on the methods and applications of the calculus with some coverage of relevant theory, including functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, integrations in higher dimensions, and line and surface integrals. Particular attention is paid to those aspects of calculus that are important in developing effective problem solving methods - often involving estimating errors or constructing numerical approximations. The material is well-organized and comprehensive and features many applications. This book provides more thorough treatment of some major topics than most texts, such as: comparison tests for improper integrals; use of power series representations for functions; and the relation between linear approximations and differentiation. Other topics covered include elementary transcendental functions, infinite series, Taylor's approximation, polar coordinates, and vectors and three dimensional geometry.
