For freshman/sophomore-level courses treating calculus of both one and several variables.

Clear and Concise!

Varberg focuses on the most critical concepts freeing you to teach the way you want!

This popular calculus text remains the shortest mainstream calculus book available yet covers all the material needed by, and at an appropriate level for, students in engineering, science, and mathematics. It's conciseness and clarity helps students focus on, and understand, critical concepts in calculus without them getting bogged down and lost in excessive and unnecessary detail. It is accurate, without being excessively rigorous, up-to-date without being faddish. The authors make effective use of computing technology, graphics, and applications. Ideal for instructors who want a no-nonsense, concisely written treatment.

From the Back Cover:

MATLAB 6 is the latest version of the popular, comprehensive and easy-to-use environment for performing technical and scientific calculations. Its interactive nature
offers invaluable assistance with numeric computation and data visualization.

MATLAB 6 for Engineers provides a clear and concise introduction to MATLAB 6, demonstrating its enhanced programming capabilities and exploring its use in solving engineering problems. Written for engineering students and practising engineers, it shows how MATLAB can be used to perform calculations, store tables and interpolate between stored values, process numbers obtained by data acquisition systems, and prepare engineering and research reports.

The book is split into three parts: Chapter 1 is a concise MATLAB tutorial for users wishing to get quickly acquainted with the package itself; Part I (Chapters 2-10) is an introduction for engineers, beginning with basic calculations and helping the user to master techniques for solving progressively more complex problems; Part II (Chapters 11-18) focuses on more advanced material, featuring specialized applications and new functions.

Key features include:
 * Full coverage of the main features of MATLAB 6
 * A guided introduction to the basic MATLAB functions
 * Written in a clear and readable style
 * A wealth of end of chapter exercises, with solutions to selected problems
 * Real world examples from engineering mathematics, mechanical and electrical engineering
 * Appendices and summaries to reinforce learning
 * Studies of classical engineering problems, for which MATLAB yields concise
 and elegant solutions
