More > These are the vectors by which our imaginations run into their darkest and most uncomfortable corners. These are the poisons of our minds, the seeds of discord, from which dark flowers blossom into nightmare. Such is the nature of Vector, a collection of short, unrelated horror stories which will transport the reader all over the world, from the grimy carpets of New Orleans hotels to the cemeteries of Paris, from the bear-infested Polar Ice Cap to the hermetic caves of the Pyrenees, from serene Minnesota to war-torn Liberia, from the mountain to the desert to the swamp- in the end, the reader will be glad that Vector is only a work of fiction.< Less
This is a text on elementary multivariable calculus, designed for students who have completed courses in single-variable calculus. The traditional topics are covered: basic vector algebra; lines,... More > planes and surfaces; vector-valued functions; functions of 2 or 3 variables; partial derivatives; optimization; multiple integrals; line and surface integrals.
The book also includes discussion of numerical methods: Newton's method for optimization, and the Monte Carlo method for evaluating multiple integrals. There is a section dealing with applications to probability. Appendices include a proof of the right-hand rule for the cross product, and a short tutorial on using Gnuplot for graphing functions of 2 variables.
There are 420 exercises in the book. Answers to selected exercises are included.< Less
