Multivariable Advanced Calculus

Number of pages: 450
Description:
This book is directed to people who have a good understanding of the concepts of one variable calculus including the notions of limit of a sequence and completeness of R. It develops multivariable advanced calculus. In order to do multivariable calculus correctly, you must first understand some linear algebra. Therefore, a condensed course in linear algebra is presented first, emphasizing those topics in linear algebra which are useful in analysis, not those topics which are primarily dependent on row operations. Many topics could be presented in greater generality than I have chosen to do. I have also attempted to feature calculus, not topology. This means I introduce the topology as it is needed rather than using the possibly more efficient practice of placing it right at the beginning in more generality than will be needed. I think it might make the topological concepts more memorable by linking them in this way to other concepts.

This book presents the necessary linear algebra and then uses it as a framework upon which to build multivariable calculus. This is the correct approach, leaving open the possibility that at least some students will understand the topics presented.
