A great book. Starts with two very good chapters on linear algebra, adapted to the needs of calculus, and then proceeds to introduce you to the contemporary way to do multivariate calculus, including existence theorems connected to completeness. Very thorough treatment of integration, including integration of forms on manifolds, up to the Stokes theorem, built upon a fine chapter on differential manifolds, exterior differential forms, riemannian metrics, etc. Good illustrations and beautiful typesetting add to the joy of reading it. Plenty of exercises and chapters on applications to physics and differential geometry.

A text for a two-semester multivariable calculus course. The setting is n-dimensional Euclidean space, with the material on differentiation culminating in the Inverse Function Theorem, and the material on integration culminating in Stokes's Theorem.

Many functions in the application of mathematics involve many variables simultaneously. This book introducses Rn, angles and the dot product, cross product, lines, planes, hyperplanes, linear and affine functions, operations with matrices, and more.
by Paul Dawkins - Lamar University
These lecture notes should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus III or needing a refresher in some of the topics from the class. The notes assume a working knowledge of limits, derivatives, integration, parametric equations, vectors.

This book presents the necessary linear algebra and then uses it as a framework upon which to build multivariable calculus. This is the correct approach, leaving open the possibility that at least some students will understand the topics presented.
