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. Vectors: Vectors in Two and Three Dimensions. More About Vectors. The Dot Product. The Cross Product. Equations for Planes; Distance Problems. Some n-Dimensional Geometry. New Coordinate Systems. Differentiation in Several Variables: Functions of Several Variables; Graphing Surfaces. Limits. The Derivative. Properties; Higher-Order Partial Derivatives; Newton’s Method. The Chain Rule. Directional Derivatives and the Gradient. Vector-Valued Functions: Parametrized Curves and Kepler's Laws. Arclength and Differential Geometry. Vector Fields: An Introduction. Gradient, Divergence, Curl, and the Del Operator. Maxima and Minima in Several Variables: Differentials and Taylor's Theorem. Extrema of Functions. Lagrange Multipliers. Some Applications of Extrema. Multiple Integration: Introduction: Areas and Volumes. Double Integrals. Changing the Order of Integration. Triple Integrals. Change of Variables. Applications of Integration. Line Integrals: Scalar and Vector Line Integrals. Green's Theorem. Conservative Vector Fields. Surface Integrals and Vector Analysis: Parametrized Surfaces. Surface Integrals. Stokes's and Gauss's Theorems. Further Vector Analysis; Maxwell's Equations. Vector Analysis in Higher Dimensions: An Introduction to Differential Forms. Manifolds and Integrals of k-forms.

Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
