Calculus, Applications and Theory
by Kenneth Kuttler
Number of pages: 912
Calculus consists of the study of limits of various sorts and the systematic exploitation of the completeness axiom. It was developed by physicists and engineers over a period of several hundred years in order to solve problems from the physical sciences. It is the language by which precision and quantitative predictions for many complicated problems are obtained. It is used to find lengths of curves, areas and volumes of regions which are not bounded by straight lines. It is used to predict and account for the motion of satellites. It is essential in order to solve many maximization problems and it is prerequisite material in order to understand models based on differential equations. These and other applications are discussed to some extent in this book. It is assumed the reader has a good understanding of algebra on the level of college algebra or what used to be called algebra II along with some exposure to geometry and trigonometry although the book does contain an extensive review of these things. If the optional sections and non standard sections are not included, this book is fairly short. However, there is a lot of non standard material, including the big theorems of advanced calculus.

by Robert H. Smith - Griffin
This work presents the leading features in the study and application of the higher mathematics. The development of the subject is based on essentially concrete conceptions, and no appeal is made to what may be termed rational imagination.
by Dan Sloughter
The book is on sequences, limits, difference equations, functions and their properties, affine approximations, integration, polynomial approximations and Taylor series, transcendental functions, complex plane and differential equations.
by C. E. Love, E. D. Rainville - The MacMillan Company
This book presents a first course in the calculus. The text is intended to contain a precise statement of the fundamental principle involved, and to insure the student's clear understanding of this principle, without a multitude of details.
by K.D. Stroyan - Academic Press, Inc.
This is a fresh look at the foundations of calculus. The book will be useful reference for students who like the 'theorem - proof' approach to calculus, these proofs are completely rigorous in the sense of modern mathematics.
