Key Message:University Calculus: Alternate Editionanswers the demand for a more streamlined, less expensive version of the highly acclaimedThomas Calculus, Eleventh Edition.nbsp; The text retains the same quality and quantity of exercises as the eleventh edition while using a faster-paced presentation. This text focuses on the thinking behind calculus and uses the same precise, accurate exposition for which the Thomas series is well known. The elegant art program helps todayrsquo;s readers visualize important concepts. Key Topics: Functions; Limits and Continuity; Differentiation; Applications of Derivatives; Integration; Applications of Definite Integrals; Transcendental Functions; Techniques of Integration; Infinite Sequences and Series; Polar Coordinates and Conics; Vectors and the Geometry of Space; Vector-Valued Functions and Motion in Space; Partial Derivatives; Multiple Integrals; Integration in Vector Fields; First-Order Differential Equations; Second-Order Differential Equations Market: For all readers interested in Calculus.
