An Intuitive and Physical Approach (Second Edition)
Application-oriented introduction relates the subject as closely as possible to science. In-depth explorations of the derivative, the differentiation and integration of the powers of x, and theorems on differentiation and antidifferentiation lead to a definition of the chain rule and examinations of trigonometric functions, logarithmic and exponential functions, techniques of integration, polarMathematics for the Nonmathematician
Practical, scientific, philosophical, and artistic problems have caused men to investigate mathematics. But there is one other motive which is as strong as any of these—the search for beauty. Mathematics is an art, and as such affords the pleasures which all the arts afford." In this erudite, entertaining college-level text, Morris Kline, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at New York University,Mathematics and the Physical World
Stimulating account of development of mathematics from arithmetic, algebra, geometry and trigonometry, to calculus, differential equations and non-Euclidean geometries. Also describes how math is used in optics, astronomy, motion under the law of gravitation, acoustics, electromagnetism, other phenomena. 147 illustrations.Mathematical Thought From Ancient to Modern Times : Volume 1
