Although intended primarily for economic students, the book is equally adapted to the use of those who wish a short course in 'The Calculus' as a matter of general education. I have had in mind not so much the classroom as the study.

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.

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.
