With 23 chapters, this text for an upper-level undergraduate course in calculus provides much more material than can be covered in one semester. The text covers theory and methods of differential calculus and shows how to use them when dealing with problems in engineering and the physical sciences. The first part of the book, six chapters, explains fundamental prerequisite concepts from algebra, geometry, coordinate geometry, and trigonometry. A transition chapter deals with areas such as the limit of a function and methods for computing limits of algebraic functions. Later chapters cover continuity of functions, derivatives of functions, trigonometric limits, and exponential and logarithmic functions and their derivatives, in addition to implicit functions, parametric functions, Rolle's theorem, Taylor's formula, and hyperbolic functions. Appendices give background on more prerequisites, such as elementary set theory. Rohde is a Fellow of IEEE.
