A Brief Introduction to the Infinitesimal Calculus
by Irving Fisher
Publisher: Macmillan 1921
Number of pages: 110
Although intended primarily for economic students, the book is equally adapted to the use of those who wish a short course in 'The Calculus' as a matter of general education. I have had in mind not so much the classroom as the study.

Short introductory text on differentiation and integration of functions of a single variable, and iterated integrals. The emphasis is on the techniques of calculus, although proofs are given for the important results at the back of the book.

The difference between advanced calculus and calculus is that all the theorems are proved completely. Routine skills are supposed to be mastered and have no place in advanced calculus which deals with the issues related to existence and meaning.

The derivative is presented rigorously as a limit. Maxima and minima are discussed as the turning values in the variation of a function. The related theories of inflexions, curvature, and asymptotes receive direct and comprehensive treatment.

Where many texts present a general theory of calculus followed by substantial collections of worked examples, we instead pose problems or situations, consider possibilities, and then ask students to investigate and explore.
