Calculus of Several Variables 3RD Editionby Serge Lang
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This is a new, revised edition of this widely known text. All of the basic topics in calculus of several variables are covered, including vectors, curves, functions of several variables, gradient, tangent plane, maxima and minima, potential functions, curve integrals, Green's theorem, multiple integrals, surface integrals, Stokes' theorem, and the inverse mapping theorem and its consequences. The presentation is selfcontained, assuming only a knowledge of basic calculus in one variable. Many completely workedout problems have been included.
