Features

New to This Edition

**New author, Colin Adams**

Colin Adams is an award-winning teacher, widely read author, and distinguished researcher. A user of Jon Rogawski’s textbook, he brings his own classroom experience to the project, as well as a well-regarded ability to make calculus more engaging and meaningful to students without sacrificing its precision and rigor.

**The exercise sets were reviewed extensively by longtime users to ensure the utmost accuracy, clarity, and complete content coverage. Exercise sets were also modified to improve upon the grading by level of difficulty and to ensure even/odd pairing.**

Refined Exercises

Refined Exercises

In addition, numerous new exercises have been added throughout the text, particularly where new applications are available or to enhance conceptual development.

**, including**

New Examples

New Examples

Example 7 in Section 4.3 where the local minimum occurs at critical point but derivative does not exist

Example 5 in Section 6.1 that computes the areas between two curves in two ways

Several new examples in Chapter 11 including Example 1 (Fibonacci sequence) and Example 4 (bounded sequence) in Section 11.1 and Example 5 (repeated decimal expansion) in Section 11.2

Several examples in Chapter 15 including Example 7 (a limit that does not exist because different paths product different limits) in Section 15.2, Example 9 (gradient vectors perpendicular to level curves) in Section 15.5 and Example 5 (Second Derivative Tests fails) in Section 15.7

New Content Based on User and Reviewer Feedback

New Content Based on User and Reviewer Feedback

**Determining Which Convergence Test To Apply**(new in Ch. 11, sec. 5) reviews each test and provides strategies on when to apply them.

**More Focus on Concepts**

**This edition includes a number of new figures that help students visualize concepts, including illustrations that explain:**

New Illustrations

New Illustrations

What a limit means (Fig. 5 in Section 2.1, Fig. 3 in Section 2.2)

The Intermediate Value Theorem (Fig. 2 in Section 2.8)

Vertically and horizontally simple regions (Figs. 2 and 9 in Section 6.1)

**Standardized Notation**

Notational changes bring this edition in line with standard notation usage in mathematics and other fields that use mathematics, presenting a consistent message to students. Other notational changes make it easier for students to comprehend the concepts.

For example, in multivariable chapters, notation for vector-valued functions is now written r(t) = <x(t), y(t)> instead of c(t) = (x(t), y(t)) and the standard notation V is used for potential functions.

**In a game-like format, LearningCurve adaptive and formative quizzing provides an effective way to get students involved in the coursework. It offers:**

## Authors

### Jon Rogawski

**Jon Rogawski** received his undergraduate and master’s degrees in mathematics simultaneously from Yale University, and he earned his PhD in mathematics from Princeton University, where he studied under Robert Langlands. Before joining the Department of Mathematics at UCLA in 1986, where he was a full professor, he held teaching and visiting positions at the Institute for Advanced Study, the University of Bonn, and the University of Paris at Jussieu and Orsay.
Jon’s areas of interest were number theory, automorphic forms, and harmonic analysis on semisimple groups. He published numerous research articles in leading mathematics journals, including the research monograph Automorphic Representations of Unitary Groups in Three Variables (Princeton University Press). He was the recipient of a Sloan Fellowship and an editor of the Pacific Journal of Mathematics and the Transactions of the AMS.
As a successful teacher for more than 30 years, Jon Rogawski listened and learned much from his own students. These valuable lessons made an impact on his thinking, his writing, and his shaping of a calculus text. Sadly, Jon Rogawski passed away in September 2011. Jon’s commitment to presenting the beauty of calculus and the important role it plays in students’ understanding of the wider world is the legacy that lives on in each new edition of Calculus.

### Colin Adams

**Colin Adams ** is the Thomas T. Read professor of Mathematics at Williams College, where he has taught since 1985. Colin received his undergraduate degree from MIT and his PhD from the University of Wisconsin. His research is in the area of knot theory and low-dimensional topology. He has held various grants to support his research, and written numerous research articles.
Colin is the author or co-author of The Knot Book, How to Ace Calculus: The Streetwise Guide, How to Ace the Rest of Calculus: The Streetwise Guide, Riot at the Calc Exam and Other Mathematically Bent Stories, Why Knot?, Introduction to Topology: Pure and Applied, and Zombies & Calculus. He co-wrote and appears in the videos “The Great Pi vs. E Debate” and “Derivative vs. Integral: the Final Smackdown.”
He is a recipient of the Haimo National Distinguished Teaching Award from the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) in 1998, an MAA Polya Lecturer for 1998-2000, a Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer for 2000-2002, and the recipient of the Robert Foster Cherry Teaching Award in 2003. Colin has two children and one slightly crazy dog, who is great at providing the entertainment.
