In this early textbook by mathematician Augustus De Morgan and first published in 1836, serious students of math will find useful lessons, explanations, and diagrams. Math and math textbooks of his time were found to be generally inaccessible to the public at large, so De Morgan, who believed that everyone should be educated in mathematics because it was so essential to science and modern life, relies on simple, straightforward, and easy-to-understand language, despite the depth of his topic. Among the areas covered here are: infinitely small quantities, infinite series, ratios of continuously increasing or decreasing quantities, and algebraical geometry.British mathematician Augustus De Morgan (1806-1871) invented the term mathematical induction. Among his many published works is Trigonometry and Double Algebra and A Budget of Paradoxes.

The classic introduction to the fundamentals of calculus Richard Courant's classic text Differential and Integral Calculus is an essential text for those preparing for a career in physics or applied math. Volume 1 introduces the foundational concepts of "function" and "limit", and offers detailed explanations that illustrate the "why" as well as the "how". Comprehensive coverage of the basics of integrals and differentials includes their applications as well as clearly-defined techniques and essential theorems. Multiple appendices provide supplementary explanation and author notes, as well as solutions and hints for all in-text problems.

Eine spannende Abhandlung zu ausgewählten Fragen der Mechanik quer durch die Jahrhunderte der Physik. Ohne großen mathematischen Ballast zeigt Acheson, wie hier die Infinitesimalrechnung - oder auch Calculus - den passenden Schlüssel zum Verständnis liefert. Das dynamische Verhalten der vorgestellten Systeme wird sowohl analytisch als auch mit Simulationen untersucht. Dazu werden QBasic-Programme verwendet, die so einfach sind, daß sie jeder leicht zum Laufen bringen und seinen Fragestellungen entsprechend anpassen kann. Der Inhalt wird durch historische Darstellungen der Mechanik und durch Bilder berühmter Physiker und Faksimiles ihrer Originaltexte bereichert. Das Buch für Studenten und Dozenten der Mathematik und Physik ist auch für interessierte Schüler der Oberstufe geeignet.

The Historical Development of the Calculus

The calculus has served for three centuries as the principal quantitative language of Western science. In the course of its genesis and evolution some of the most fundamental problems of mathematics were first con fronted and, through the persistent labors of successive generations, finally resolved. Therefore, the historical development of the calculus holds a special interest for anyone who appreciates the value of a historical perspective in teaching, learning, and enjoying mathematics and its ap plications. My goal in writing this book was to present an account of this development that is accessible, not solely to students of the history of mathematics, but to the wider mathematical community for which my exposition is more specifically intended, including those who study, teach, and use calculus. The scope of this account can be delineated partly by comparison with previous works in the same general area. M. E. Baron's The Origins of the Infinitesimal Calculus (1969) provides an informative and reliable treat ment of the precalculus period up to, but not including (in any detail), the time of Newton and Leibniz, just when the interest and pace of the story begin to quicken and intensify. C. B. Boyer's well-known book (1949, 1959 reprint) met well the goals its author set for it, but it was more ap propriately titled in its original edition-The Concepts of the Calculus than in its reprinting.

This book offers an overview of the central ideas in calculus and gives examples of how calculus is used to translate many real-world phenomena into mathematical functions. Beginning with an explanation of the two major parts of calculus - differentiation and integration - Gudmund R Iversen illustrates how calculus is used in statistics: to distinguish between the mean and the median; to derive the least squares formulas for regression co-efficients; to find values of parameters from theoretical distributions; and to find a statistical p-value when using one of the continuous test variables such as the t-variable.

Were it not for the calculus, mathematicians would have no way to describe the acceleration of a motorcycle or the effect of gravity on thrown balls and distant planets, or to prove that a man could cross a room and eventually touch the opposite wall. Just how calculus makes these things possible and in doing so finds a correspondence between real numbers and the real world is the subject of this dazzling book by a writer of extraordinary clarity and stylistic brio. Even as he initiates us into the mysteries of real numbers, functions, and limits, Berlinski explores the furthest implications of his subject, revealing how the calculus reconciles the precision of numbers with the fluidity of the changing universe. "An odd and tantalizing book by a writer who takes immense pleasure in this great mathematical tool, and tries to create it in others."--New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.
