Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations, Second Edition contains a comprehensive coverage of the study of advanced calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations for sophomore college students. The text includes a large number of examples, exercises, cases, and applications for students to learn calculus well. Also included is the history and development of calculus. The book is divided into five parts. The first part includes multivariable calculus material. The second part is an introduction to linear algebra. The third part of the book combines techniques from calculus and linear algebra and contains discussions of some of the most elegant results in calculus including Taylor's theorem in "n" variables, the multivariable mean value theorem, and the implicit function theorem. The fourth section contains detailed discussions of first-order and linear second-order equations. Also included are optional discussions of electric circuits and vibratory motion. The final section discusses Taylor's theorem, sequences, and series. The book is intended for sophomore college students of advanced calculus.
