A First Course in Calculus (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)by Serge Lang
Synopses & Reviews
This is the fifth edition of Lang's caclulus book. It covers all of the topics traditionally taught in the first-year calculus sequence. The book consists of five parts: Review of Basic Material, Differention and Elementary Functions, Integration, Taylor's Formula and Series and Functions of Several Variables. Each section of A FIRST COURSE IN CALCULUS contains examples and applications of the topic covered. In addition, the back of the book contains detailed solutions to a large number of the exercises. These can be used as worked-out examples, and constitute one of the main changes from previous editions.
