For standard undergraduate Calculus courses. Multivariable Calculus now has a full chapter of material on matrices and eigenvalues up front. All of Multivariable Calculus has been rewritten with matrix notation.* NEW-Linear algebra and matrices-Found in Semester III. Linear systems and matrices through determinants and eigenvalues are now introduced in Chapter 11. The subsequent multivariable chapters now integrate matrix methods and terminology with traditional multivariable calculus (e.g., the chain rule in matrix form). * NEW-CD-ROM/WWW learning resources fully integrated throughout-The CD-ROM accompanying the book contains a student-usable, functional array of fully integrated learning resources linked to individual sections of the text. Most text examples are animated with 'What-If' scenarios. The whole text is available in interactive Maple notebooks. * NEW-320 End-of-section Concepts/Questions and Discussion -Adds beginning conceptual questions that can serve as the basis for either writing assignments or for individual and group discussion. Also added are higher-end problems at the ends of problem sets. * NEW-True/False Study Guide-Ten author-written true/false questions (with hints) review each section. These 1080 new questions are not printed in the book, but the icon takes you to them on the CD-ROM. * NEW-Computer projects-At the end of each section. Now briefer, with the deletion of in-text technology details. Maple/Mathematica/Matlab/Calculator resources for each Project are included on the CD-ROM. * A lively and accessible writing style. * The most extensively visual text in the market-Highlighted by hundreds of Mathematica and MATLAB generated figures throughout the book. * More than 795 new problems-Almost all of these are in the intermediate range of difficulty, neither highly theoretical nor computationally routine. Some reflect an emphasis on new technology by encouraging the use of technology ranging from a graphing calculator to a computer algebra system. * Website available to users-With student help center staffed by graduate students available on Sunday evenings. Site includes animations of most text examples with 'what-if' scenarios, challenging applications that require the user to have some type of number crunching software, self-paced quizzes, and internet links of additional calculus material.Biografía del autor:
C. Henry Edwards is emeritus professor of mathematics at the University of Georgia. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of Tennessee in 1960, and recently retired after 40 years of classroom teaching (including calculus or differential equations almost every term) at the universities of Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Georgia, with a brief interlude at the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton) as an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow. He has received numerous teaching awards, including the University of Georgia's honoratus medal in 1983 (for sustained excellence in honors teaching), its Josiah Meigs award in 1991 (the institution's highest award for teaching), and the 1997 state-wide Georgia Regents award for research university faculty teaching excellence. His scholarly career has ranged from research and dissertation direction in topology to the history of mathematics to computing and technology in the teaching and applications of mathematics. In addition to being author or co-author of calculus, advanced calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations textbooks, he is well-known to calculus instructors as author of The Historical Development of the Calculus (Springer-Verlag, 1979). During the 1990s he served as a principal investigator on three NSF-supported projects: (1) A school mathematics project including Maple for beginning algebra students, (2) A Calculus-with-Mathematica program, and (3) A MATLAB-based computer lab project for numerical analysis and differential equations students. David E. Penney, University of Georgia, completed his Ph.D. at Tulane University in 1965 (under the direction of Prof. L. Bruce Treybig) while teaching at the University of New Orleans. Earlier he had worked in experimental biophysics at Tulane University and the Veteran's Administration Hospital in New Orleans under the direction of Robert Dixon McAfee, where Dr. McAfee's research team's primary focus was on the active transport of sodium ions by biological membranes. Penney's primary contribution here was the development of a mathematical model (using simultaneous ordinary differential equations) for the metabolic phenomena regulating such transport, with potential future applications in kidney physiology, management of hypertension, and treatment of congestive heart failure. He also designed and constructed servomechanisms for the accurate monitoring of ion transport, a phenomenon involving the measurement of potentials in microvolts at impedances of millions of megohms. Penney began teaching calculus at Tulane in 1957 and taught that course almost every term with enthusiasm and distinction until his retirement at the end of the last millennium. During his tenure at the University of Georgia he received numerous University-wide teaching awards as well as directing several doctoral dissertations and seven undergraduate research projects. He is the author of research papers in number theory and topology and is the author or co-author of textbooks on calculus, computer programming, differential equations, linear algebra, and liberal arts mathematics.
