Elementary Functions and Applications
by Arthur Sullivan Gale, Charles William Watkeys
Publisher: H. Holt & Co. 1920
Number of pages: 459
This book presents a coherent year's work in mathematics for college freshmen, consisting of a study of the elementary functions; algebraic and transcendental, and their applications to problems arising in various fields of knowledge. The treatment is confined to functions of one variable, with incidental exceptions, and complex values of the independent and dependent variables are excluded. The subject matter includes the essentials of plane trigonometry and topics from advanced algebra, analytic geometry, and calculus.

The first part of the book brings together all methods for the graphical representation of functions of one variable, and analytic geometry of two dimensions. The transition to the calculus is made early through the discussion of slope and area ...

The intuition is useful in dealing with simple examples, but can be a hindrance to deeper understanding of the basic concepts of mathematical analysis. The point of this text is to challenge and refine the intuition of better calculus students.

The book is on sequences, limits, difference equations, functions and their properties, affine approximations, integration, polynomial approximations and Taylor series, transcendental functions, complex plane and differential equations.

This work presents the leading features in the study and application of the higher mathematics. The development of the subject is based on essentially concrete conceptions, and no appeal is made to what may be termed rational imagination.
