Based on course material used by the author at Yale University, this practical text addresses the widening gap found between the mathematics required for upper-level courses in the physical sciences and the knowledge of incoming students. This superb book offers students an excellent opportunity to strengthen their mathematical skills by solving various problems in differential calculus. By covering material in its simplest form, students can look forward to a smooth entry into any course in the physical sciences.
Based on a course the author has given several times at Yale U., addresses the widening gap found by Professor Shankar and his colleagues between the mathematics needed for upper level science study and the knowledge students typically possess.
