About the book
This text contains a consistent and complete exposition of a single variable calculus course for any university in the world. The readers will find transcendental functions introduced at the very beginning, the notion of a sequence and its limit studied before a limit of a function is introduced.
Theorems with complete proofs, numerous examples and practice problems of various order of difficulties • Enlarged coverge of integration techniques with applications to geometric problems • Systems exposition of complex numbers merged into the main course, together with proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra and Cardans’s formulas for solving algebraic equations of order 3 and 4 • Set of Maple Labs, allows students to acquire the ability to use the Maplemathematical software for solving complex calculus problems
