Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

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 statewide 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 or co-author of textbooks on calculus, computer programming, differential equations, linear algebra, and liberal arts mathematics. --This text refers to the Gebundene Ausgabe edition.

Excellent book! 15. Januar 2011
Von Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I just finished self-studying Calculus using this book. During the last six months that it took me to finish, never did I find the need for a teacher.

This book covers the topics taught in the first three semesters of an undergraduate math-related course. There are 14 chapters in all: 1) Functions, Graphs, and Models 2) Prelude to Calculus 3) The Derivative 4) Additional Applications of the Derivative 5) The Integral 6) Applications of the Integral 7) Techniques of Integration 8) Differential Equations 9) Polar Coordinates and Parametric Curves 10) Infinite Series 11) Vectors, Curves, and Surfaces in Space 12) Partial Differentiation 13) Multiple Integrals 14) Vector Calculus.

Each chapter begins with a page of related historical details in order to engage the reader. This is followed by around 4-10 sections, each of which has an exercise with 30 problems (on an average) and 10 True/False questions. After reading the theory for a section, solve 10 problems from the exercise. [Make sure you use MATLAB (or any similar software) and a Graphing Calculator whenever a problem requires it. Wolfram Mathematica Online Integrator is another useful tool.] Then do the True/False questions and move on to the next section.

The problems are a lot of fun to do and some of them are quite challenging. So buy the Solutions Manual if you think you need it, but only after you finish the entire book (so that you don't peek!). Answers to odd-numbered problems and all True/False questions are given at the end. Also, there are appendices for those of you who need to brush up your algebra/trigonometry/basic concepts.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!!

Just like Stewart's book 26. August 2010
Von K. Chen - Veröffentlicht auf
I purchased this text for my Calc 2-3 class at my university. (It is also used in Calc 1)

Very good book to do practice problems and the chapters are not difficult to read. As with all math, practice is key to doing well.
It is very similar to Stewart's book and I strongly recommend getting the solutions manual.

The Instructor's Edition is pretty much the same as the regular book! I found no differences in the problem sets or chapter readings. However it is cheaper!

A Good Calculus Text 6. Mai 2012
Von Patrick J. OHara - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The only draw back that I find with this book, and many of the well-known and used Calculus books like Larson's Calculus: AP Edition is that there isn't enough discussion of the concept of the Integral as an Accumulation Function. The AP Calculus tests now have placed considerable emphasis on these functions in the Free Response questions with initial conditions. Granted, the text here being reviewed is not an AP textbook, and compared to Larson's AP edition, Edward's has more of a discussion of the Integral as an Accumulation Function, though he doesn't describe the Integral in this way that I've seen. Yet there is just a smattering of questions at the end of the chapter that seem to me to not be at AP level as one would encounter on the exam. There should be a chapter or more devoted to this concept and use of the Integral and a generous supply of AP level test questions at the end, instead of a tiny section and a smattering of accumulation function exercises because this area and concept of the Integral is currently in vogue.

Even in some of the so-called "Applied Calculus" texts, there is no mention of these functions at all, except one I found Calculus Concepts: An Informal Approach to the Mathematics of Change (Textbooks Available with Cengage Youbook) which appears to have some sections and a whole chapter that discusses the Integral in this way in applications. This should be good practice for those preparing for the AP exams. I purchased it and hope it is what it appears to be: a book that discusses in depth the Integral as an Accumulation Function and fills the void that many Calculus books have in this area - even AP titles. If so, I will recommend it to students as a supplement.
The descriptions are excellent, the problems are diverse 23. Januar 2015

Some of my reviews are satirical in nature, but this book deserves none of that. I will stand by this behemoth of bound information any day. It is a calculus book, but even now as I take higher level math course, I find myself referencing this book. It has all the details and nuances tucked away in its pages. The descriptions are excellent, the problems are diverse. The sections will train you and teach you. Some books are written, it appears, to spite the reader and remind the reader of the writers superior knowledge, but this book just sits back and takes it one step at a time. From the first chapters which cover what some would consider pre-calculus to the last chapters which some people would consider beginning differential equations, there is nary a moment when the methods and thought processes are "left to the reader as an exercise."
