A great book. Starts with two very good chapters on linear algebra, adapted to the needs of calculus, and then proceeds to introduce you to the contemporary way to do multivariate calculus, including existence theorems connected to completeness. Very thorough treatment of integration, including integration of forms on manifolds, up to the Stokes theorem, built upon a fine chapter on differential manifolds, exterior differential forms, riemannian metrics, etc. Good illustrations and beautiful typesetting add to the joy of reading it. Plenty of exercises and chapters on applications to physics and differential geometry.

The textbook guides students through the core concepts of calculus. Volume 3 covers parametric equations and polar coordinates, vectors, functions of several variables, multiple integration, and second-order differential equations.

A textbok on elementary multivariable calculus, the covered topics: vector algebra, lines, planes, surfaces, vector-valued functions, functions of 2 or 3 variables, partial derivatives, optimization, multiple, line and surface integrals.

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.
