Publisher: Cornell University Library

Number of pages: 388

Description:
The present volume is the outgrowth of the requirements for students in engineering and science in Cornell University, for whom a somewhat brief but adequate introduction to the Calculus is prescribed. The guiding principle in the selection and presentation of the topics in the following pages has been the ever increasing pressure on the present-day curriculum, especially in applied science, to limit the study of mathematics to a minimum of time and to the topics that are deemed of most immediate use to the professional course for which it is preparatory.
