Calculus hasn't changed, but readers have. Today's readers have been raised on immediacy and the desire for relevance, and they come to calculus with varied mathematical backgrounds.Thomas' Calculus, Twelfth Edition, helps readers successfully generalize and apply the key ideas of calculus through clear and precise explanations, clean design, thoughtfully chosen examples, and superior exercise sets. Thomas offers the right mix of basic, conceptual, and challenging exercises, along with meaningful applications. This significant revision features more examples, more mid-level exercises, more figures, improved conceptual flow, and MyMathLab®, the best in technology for learning and teaching.
KEY TOPICS:Functions; Limits and Continuity; Differentiation; Applications of Derivatives; Integration; Applications of Definite Integrals; Transcendental Functions; Techniques of Integration; First-Order Differential Equations; Infinite Sequences and Series; Parametric Equations and Polar Coordinates; Vectors and the Geometry of Space; Vector-Valued Functions and Motion in Space; Partial Derivatives; Multiple Integrals; Integration in Vector Fields; Second-Order Differential Equations
MARKET: For all readers interested in Calculus.
Joel Hass received his PhD from the University of California—Berkeley. He is currently a professor of mathematics at the University of California—Davis. He has coauthored six widely used calculus texts as well as two calculus study guides. He is currently on the editorial board of Geometriae Dedicata and Media-Enhanced Mathematics. He has been a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University and of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, and he was a Sloan Research Fellow. Hass’s current areas of research include the geometry of proteins, three dimensional manifolds, applied math, and computational complexity. In his free time, Hass enjoys kayaking.
Maurice D. Weir holds a DA and MS from Carnegie-Mellon University and received his BS at Whitman College. He is a Professor Emeritus of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Weir enjoys teaching Mathematical Modeling and Differential Equations. His current areas of research include modeling and simulation as well as mathematics education. Weir has been awarded the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, the Superior Civilian Service Award, and the Schieffelin Award for Excellence in Teaching. He has coauthored eight books, including the University Calculus series and the twelfth edition of Thomas’ Calculus.
George B. Thomas, Jr. (late) of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was a professor of mathematics for thirty-eight years; he served as the executive officer of the department for ten years and as graduate registration officer for five years. Thomas held a spot on the board of governors of the Mathematical Association of America and on the executive committee of the mathematics division of the American Society for Engineering Education. His book, Calculus and Analytic Geometry, was first published in 1951 and has since gone through multiple revisions. The text is now in its twelfth edition and continues to guide students through their calculus courses. He also co-authored monographs on mathematics, including the text Probability and Statistics.
This used book from 2009 is to me a supplement to other books containing similar text and figures in my library, and it meets my expecations..Published 3 months ago by Rolf M. Mjelde
Very easy to understand the material. I hope most professors for Calculus will see this book and leave those overpriced ones alonePublished 3 months ago by Jan Emil
I was expecting this book to be the full edition in which I require all chapters. Turns out this "multivariable" sub-edition starts at chapter 10! Read morePublished 5 months ago by randy
One of the latest in the long line of Thomas Calculus texts. Superb presentation.Published 5 months ago by M. Martin Reed
Terrible book made by a terrible publisher designed to milk every cent possible from students. Pearson has horrible customer support, mymathlab is counter productive to learning,... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Captain V
