**The Calculus for Engineers and Physicists**

by Robert H. Smith

**Publisher**: Griffin 1908**ISBN/ASIN**: 1112524258**Number of pages**: 268

**Description**:

This work aims at the presentation of two leading features in the study and application of the higher mathematics. In the first place, the development of the rationale of the subject is based on essentially concrete conceptions, and no appeal is made to what may be termed rational imagination extending beyond the limits of man's actual physical and physiological experience. Thus no use is anywhere made of series of infinite numbers of things or of infinitely small quantities.
