Synopses & Reviews
This unique text provides students with a single-volume treatment of the basics of calculus and analytic geometry. It reflects the teaching methods and philosophy of Otto Schreier, an influential mathematician and professor. The order of its presentation promotes an intuitive approach to calculus, and it offers a strong emphasis on algebra with minimal prerequisites.
Starting with affine space and linear equations, the text proceeds to considerations of Euclidean space and the theory of determinants, field theory and the fundamental theorem of algebra, elements of group theory, and linear transformations and matrices. Numerous exercises at the end of each section form important supplements to the text.
This unique text provides students with a basic course in both calculus and analytic geometry. It promotes an intuitive approach to calculus and emphasizes algebraic concepts. Minimal prerequisites. Numerous exercises. 1951 edition.
This unique text provides students with a basic course in both calculus and analytic geometry — no competitive editions cover both topics in a single volume. Its prerequisites are minimal, and the order of its presentation promotes an intuitive approach to calculus. Algebraic concepts receive an unusually strong emphasis. Numerous exercises appear throughout the text. 1951 edition.
