This organization allows the authors to provide interesting applications which include transcendental functions in the material on applications of the derivative, integration and applications of the integral. The latest edition incorporates modern technology and recent trends without sacrificing the acknowledged strengths of previous versions. Contains over 1300 new problems as well as more illustrations. Fresh technology-based examples support numerous exercises requiring the use of a graphics calculator or other graphing software.
