Designed primarily as a text for undergraduate students of engineering, the book introduces the readers to the fundamentals of sequences and series. The book deals with differential calculus and functions of several variables, and discusses vector calculus including linear algebra. Based on the authors decades of teaching experience, Engineering Mathematics-I presents the fundamentals and theoretical concepts of the subject in an intelligible and easy-to-understand style.

    Linear Algebra Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Linear algebra comprises of the theory and applications of linear system of equations, linear transformations, eigen values and eigen vector problems. Determinants were first introduced for solving linear system of equations and have important engineering applications in systems of differential equations, electrical networks, eigen value problems and many more. Many complicated expressions occurring in electrical and mechanical systems can be simplified by expressing them in the form of determinants.

    Infinite Series Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Infinite series occur so frequently in all types of engineering problems that the necessity of studying their convergence or divergence is very important. Unless a series employed in an investigation is convergent, it may lead to absurd conclusions. Hence it is required that the students of engineering begin by acquiring an intelligent grasp of this topic.

    Differential Calculus Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Calculus is one of the most beautiful intellectual achievements of human being. The mathematical study of change, motion, growth or decay is calculus. One of the most important ideas of differential calculus is derivative which measures the rate of change of a given function. In engineering the concept of the derivative is very useful.

    Functions of Several Variables Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    y, then z is called a function of two variables x and y, and this is denoted by z = f(x, y). z is called the dependent variable while x and y are called independent variables. For example, the area of a triangle is determined when its base and altitude are known. Thus, area of a triangle is a function of two variables, base and altitude. In a similar way, a function of more than two variables can be defined. Geometrical Interpretation : Let z = f(x, y) be a function of two independent variables x and y defined for all pairs of values of x and y which belong to an area A of the xy-plane. Then to each point (x, y) of this area corresponds a value of z given by the relation z = f(x, y). Representing all these values (x, y, z) by points in space, we get a surface. Hence the function z = f(x, y) represents a surface.
