Number of pages: 147

Description:
I intend this book to be, firstly, a introduction to calculus based on the hyperreal number system. In other words, I will use infinitesimal and infinite numbers freely. Just as most beginning calculus books provide no logical justification for the real number system, I will provide none for the hyperreals. Secondly, I have aimed the text primarily at readers who already have some familiarity with calculus. Although the book does not explicitly assume any prerequisites beyond basic algebra and trigonometry, in practice the pace is too fast for most of those without some acquaintance with the basic notions of calculus.

The style is fluent and familiar; the treatment continuous and undogmatic. The main difficulties which encompass the early study of the Calculus are discussed in connexion with practical and historical illustrations which leave little to be desired.
