Vector Calculus (3rd Edition)

this article makes use of the language and notation of vectors and matrices to explain matters in multivariable calculus. obtainable to a person with a great heritage in single-variable calculus, it provides extra linear algebra than frequently present in a multivariable calculus publication. Colley balances this with very transparent and expansive exposition, many figures, and diverse, wide-ranging routines. teachers will savor Colley’s writing type, mathematical precision, point of rigor, and entire collection of themes treated.
