Yet Another Calculus Text
by


Number of pages: 147

Description:
I intend this book to be, firstly, a introduction to calculus based on the hyperreal number system. In other words, I will use infinitesimal and infinite numbers freely. Just as most beginning calculus books provide no logical justification for the real number system, I will provide none for the hyperreals. Secondly, I have aimed the text primarily at readers who already have some familiarity with calculus. Although the book does not explicitly assume any prerequisites beyond basic algebra and trigonometry, in practice the pace is too fast for most of those without some acquaintance with the basic notions of calculus.

by - Longmans, Green, and Co.
All teachers of engineering and applied sciences generally now recognize the vast superiority of graphical over purely mathematical methods of imparting instruction of almost every description. The former are much more convincing to the student.
