This book is an adaptation of the 10th edition of the bestselling title, Calculus by Howard Anton, Irl Bivens and Stephens Davis and 10th edition of Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Erwin Kreyszig. Noted for its expository style and clarity of presentation, this book presents an elementary treatment of the subject and addresses the changing needs of a new generation of students. The aim is to present the fundamentals of Vector Calculus and that of ordinary differential equations in the clearest possible way, pedagogy being the main consideration.
