Calculus & Ordinary Differential Equations


  • David Pearson, Professor of Applied Mathematics, University of Hull, UK

Professor Pearson's book starts with an introduction to the area and an explanation of the most commonly used functions. It then moves on through differentiation, special functions, derivatives, integrals and onto full differential equations. As with other books in the series the emphasis is on using worked examples and tutorial-based problem solving to gain the confidence of students.
