Now in its fifth edition, Vector Calculus helps students gain an intuitive and solid understanding of this important subject. The book's careful account is a contemporary balance between theory, application, and historical development, providing it's readers with an insight into how mathematics progresses and is in turn influenced by the natural world.

- Expanded historical remarks throughout the text
- Revised presentation of Implicit Function Theorem--now more readable and accessible to students
- New section 7.7, "Application to Differential Geometry, Physics and Forms of Life"--with more on geometry and surface integrals
- Revised section 6.4, "Improper Integrals"
- 15% revised exercise material, including new and new graduated exercises
- Enhanced material on Maxwell's Equations in Chapter 8
- Optional Material moved to the Web site
- Improved readability and accessibility for students
