Basic Multivariable Calculus fills the need for a student-oriented text devoted exclusively to the third-semester course in multivariable calculus. In this text, the basic algebraic, analytic, and geometric concepts of multivariable and vector calculus are carefully explained, with an emphasis on developing the student's intuitive understanding and computational technique. A wealth of figures supports geometrical interpretation, while exercise sets, review sections, practice exams, and historical notes keep the students active in, and involved with, the mathematical ideas. All necessary linear algebra is developed within the text, and the material can be readily coordinated with computer laboratories. Basic Multivariable Calculus is the product of an extensive writing, revising, and class-testing collaboration by the authors of Calculus III (Springer-Verlag) and Vector Calculus (W.H. Freeman & Co.). Incorporating many features from these highly respected texts, it is both a synthesis of the authors' previous work and a new and original textbook.
