Ewen/Gary/Trefzger, Technical Calculus, 4/E, 2002 (0-13-093004-0) //-->4882B-1, 0-13-048822-4, Ewen, Dale, Gary, Joan S., Trefzger, James E., Technical Mathematics with Calculus, 2/E//--> This book provides readers with necessary mathematics skills, including practical calculus. Mathematics provides the essential framework for and is the basic language of all the technologies. Mathematical, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills are crucial to understanding the changing face of technology. It presents the following major areas: fundamental concepts and measurement; fundamental algebraic concepts; exponential and logarithmic functions; right-triangle trigonometry; the trigonometric functions with formulas and identities; complex numbers; matrices; polynomial and rational functions; basic statistics; analytic geometry; differential and integral calculus with applications; partial derivatives and double integrals; series; and differential equations. An excellent learning aid and resource tool for engineers, especially computer software, hardware, and peripheral manufacturers. Its comprehensive appendices make this an excellent desktop reference.
