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.

Part I introduces the standard techniques of elementary integration and, in some cases, takes the ideas a little further. In Part II, ordinary differential equation are explored, and the solution methods for some standard types are explained.

The text represents one person's attempt to put the essential ideas of calculus into a short and concise format. It may not appeal to a wide range of mathematicians, but it should provide most students with a good foundation in calculus.
