Title Details
Vector Calculus by Colley, Susan Jane
Vector Calculus
by Colley, Susan Jane

This text uses the language and notation of vectors and matrices to clarify issues in multivariable calculus. Accessible to anyone with a good background in single-variable calculus, it presents more linear algebra than usually found in a multivariable calculus book. Colley balances this with very clear and expansive exposition, many figures, and numerous, wide-ranging exercises. Instructors will appreciate Colley’s writing style, mathematical precision, level of rigor, and full selection of topics treated.
