Highly readable text elucidates applications of the chain rule of differentiation, integration by parts, parametric curves, line integrals, double integrals, and elementary differential equations. 1974 edition.

Gives an elementary exposition of an extension of the standard differentiation method which leads to an increase in both the number and type of problems that can be solved. Covers problems with fixed endpoints, variable endpoints, isoperimetric constraints, global inequality constraints, the inverse function theorem, and the chain rule of differentiation. Intended for use as a stand-alone text or as a supplement to courses in applied economics, the calculus of variations, optimal control theory, or terminal calculus. An unabridged republication of the work originally published in 1974 by Prentice-Hall, Inc. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
