This revision is nearly a new book--yet it retains the accuracy, mathematical precision, and rigor appropriate that it is known for. This book contains an entire six chapters on early transcendental calculus and a completely new chapter on differential equations and their applications. For professionals who want to brush up on their calculus skills.

Contemporary calculus instructors and students face traditional challenges as well as new ones that result from changes in the role and practice of mathematics by scientists and engineers in the world at large. As a consequence, this sixth edition of our calculus textbook is its most extensive revision since the first edition appeared in 1982. Two entire chapters of the fifth edition have disappeared from the table of contents and an entirely new chapter now appears there. Most of the remaining chapters have been extensively rewritten. About 125 of the book's over 750 worked examples are new for this edition and the 1825 figures in the text include 225 new computer-generated graphics. About 600 of its over 7000 problems are new, and these are augmented by 320 new conceptual discussion questions that now precede the problem sets. Moreover, 1050 new true/false questions are included in the Study Guides on the new CD-ROM that accompanies this edition. In summary, almost 2000 of these 8400-plus problems and questions are new, and the text discussion and explanations have undergone corresponding alteration and improvement. PRINCIPAL NEW FEATURES The current revision of the text features Early transcendentalsfully integrated in Semester I. Differential equationsand applications in Semester II. Complete coverage of the calculus of transcendental functions is now fully integrated in Chapters 1 through 6--with the result that the Chapter 7 and 8 titles in the 5th edition table of contents do not appear in this 6th edition. A new chapter on differential equations (Chapter 8) now appears immediately after Chapter 7 on techniques of integration. It includes both direction fields and Eider's method together with the more elementary symbolic methods (which exploit techniques from Chapter 7) and interesting applications of both first- and second-order equations. Chapter 10 (Infinite Series) now ends with a new section on power series solutions of differential equations, thus bringing full circle a unifying focus of second-semester calculus on elementary differential equations.
