9780131858749: Vector Calculus (3rd Edition)

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.
