Synopsis:

“This is the perfect solid-as-they-come, timeless book on the calculus, and most likely it will never be surpassed in this domain.” –Amazon Review

This book is intended for anyone who, having passed through an ordinary course of school mathematics, wishes to apply himself to the study of mathematics or its applications to science and engineering, no matter whether he is a student of a university or technical college, a teacher, or an engineer. Courant leads the way straight to useful knowledge, and aims at making the subject easier to grasp, not only by giving proofs step by step, but also by throwing light on the interconnections and purposes of the whole.

About the Author: This is one of the most important and influential books on calculus ever written. It has been reprinted more than twenty times and translated into several other languages, including Russian, and published in the Soviet Union and many other places. We especially want to thank Marvin Jay Greenberg, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics, University of California at Santa Cruz, for his Appendix on Infinitesimals, which includes recent discoveries on Hyperreals and Nilpotent Infinitesimals, and for his bibliography and references, which include up-to-date references to current publications in 2010. A professor of mathematics writes: "I've enjoyed with great pleasure your foreword, discovering many interesting things about Courant's life and his thoughts. In particular, your citations about the antithesis between intuition and rigor were very illuminating, because it corresponds to the methodological thread I'm trying to follow developing the theory of Fermat reals. "Infinitesimals without "mysticism", explicit or fogged into unclear logical methods, seems possible. Now, I think we can make a step further, because the rigor increases our possibility to understand." Richard Courant was born 8 Jan 1888 in what is now Germany and died on Jan 27, 1972 in New York.
