Intended for one-semester courses in the calculus of functions of several variables and vector analysis, Vector Calculus is widely used at the sophomore and junior level. Acclaimed authors Jerrold Marsden and Anthony Tromba help students foster computational skills and intuitive understanding with a careful balance of theory, applications, optional materials, and historical notes.

  • Sophisticated presentation--concrete, student-oriented, yet rigorous
  • Many applications, especially from fluid mechanics, gravitation, electromagnetics theory, and economics
  • Optional advanced sections and exercises
