Summary

This three-chapter supplement to the tenth editions ofCalculus for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social SciencesandCollege Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciencesprovides additional coverage of differential equations, Taylor polynomials, infinite series, and the role of probability in calculus.Includes coverage of separable differential equations, first-order linear differential equations, and related applications. Provides increased emphasis on recognition of the relevant growth laws. Discusses the operations that can be performed on Taylor series and the effects of these operations on the interval of convergence. Presents comprehensive discussion of improper integrals and properties of continuous probability density functions, including the uniform, exponential, and normal probability distributions, that requires no previous experience with probability. Includes additional information on increments and differentials, L'Hopitalrs"s Rule, double integrals over more general regions, and interpolating polynomials.For anyone interested in learning more about calculus.
