The author presents beautiful, interesting, living mathematics, as informally as possible, without compromising logical rigor. You will solidify your calculational knowledge and acquire understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the calculus.
by Virgil Snyder - American book company
The derivative is presented rigorously as a limit. Maxima and minima are discussed as the turning values in the variation of a function. The related theories of inflexions, curvature, and asymptotes receive direct and comprehensive treatment.
