Basic Multivariable Calculus helps students make the difficult transition to advanced calculus by focusing exclusively on topics traditionally covered in the third-semester course in the calculus of functions of several variables. The concepts of vector calculus are clearly and accurately explained, with an emphasis on developing students' intuitive understanding and computational technique.

Only first year calculus required--all necessary linear algebra is explained

Incorporates wide range of physical applications, dozens of graphics, and a large number of exercises

Boxes highlight important definitions and formulas

Notes to the student on exceptionally difficult topics
