In this modern treatment of the topic, Rolland Trapp presents an accessible introduction to the topic of multivariable calculus, supplemented by the use of fully interactive three-dimensional graphics throughout the text. Multivariable Calculus opens with an introduction to points, curves and surfaces, easing student transitions from two- to three-dimensions, and concludes with the main theorems of vector calculus. All standard topics of multivariable calculus are covered in between, including a variety of applications within the physical sciences. The exposition combines rigor and intuition, resulting in a well-rounded resource for students of the subject. In addition, the interactive three-dimensional graphics, accessible through the electronic text or via the companion website, enhance student understanding while improving their acuity. The style of composition, sequencing of subjects, and interactive graphics combine to form a useful text that appeals to a broad audience: students in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics alike.

Reviews for Multivariable Calculus

[the book] covers the basic topics of calculus with functions of several variables with an original presentation that insists more on calculus and geometric interpretations than on theoretical details. It will certainly be very useful for students and for anyone looking for a first introduction to multivariable calculus. Reading it is a pleasure. * Julia Cufi, zbMath *
