Excerpt from A Course in Mathematics, Vol. 2: For Students in Engineering and Applied Science
This volume completes the plan of a course in mathematics outlined in the preface to the first volume.
The subject of integration of functions of a single variable is treated in the first eight chapters. Emphasis is here laid upon the fundamental processes, and the conception of the definite integral and its numerous applications are early introduced. Only after the student is well grounded in these matters are the more special methods of evaluating integrals discussed. In this way the student's interest is early aroused in the use of the subject, and he is drilled in those processes which occur in subsequent practice. A new feature of this part of the book is a chapter on simple differential equations in close connection with integration and long before the formal study of differential equations.
With the ninth chapter the study of functions of two or more variables is begun. This is introduced and accompanied by the use of the elements of solid analytic geometry, and the treatment of partial differentiation and of multiple integrals is careful and reasonably complete. A special feature here is the chapter on line integrals. This subject, though generally omitted from elementary texts, is needed by most engineering students in their later work.
The latter part of the work consists of chapters on series, the complex number, and differential equations. In the treatment of differential equations many things properly belonging to an extended treatise on the subject are omitted in order to give the student a concise working knowledge of the types of equations which occur most often in practice.
