From the Back Cover
This book provides a complete course for first-year engineering mathematics. Whichever field of engineering you are studying, you will be most likely to require knowledge of the mathematics presented in this textbook. Taking a thorough approach, the authors put the concepts into an engineering context, so you can understand the relevance of mathematical techniques presented and gain a fuller appreciation of how to draw upon them throughout your studies.
- Comprehensive coverage of first-year engineering mathematics
- Fully worked examples and exercises provide relevance and reinforce the role of mathematics in the various branches of engineering
- Excellent coverage of engineering applications
New to this edition
- Fully integrated with MyMathLab, a powerful online homework, tutorial and self-study system
- More than 100 new worked examples
- Over 200 new exercises to help monitor progress with your learning and provide a more progressive level of difficulty
- Online ‘refresher units' covering topics you should have encountered at school but may not have used for some time
- MATLAB and MAPLE fully integrated, showing you how these powerful tools can be used to support your work in mathematics

About the Author
Joel Hass received his PhD from the University of California—Berkeley. He is currently a professor of mathematics at the University of California—Davis. He has coauthored six widely used calculus texts as well as two calculus study guides. He is currently on the editorial board of Geometriae Dedicata and Media-Enhanced Mathematics. He has been a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University and of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, and he was a Sloan Research Fellow. Hass’s current areas of research include the geometry of proteins, three dimensional manifolds, applied math, and computational complexity. In his free time, Hass enjoys kayaking.
Maurice D. Weir holds a DA and MS from Carnegie-Mellon University and received his BS at Whitman College. He is a Professor Emeritus of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Weir enjoys teaching Mathematical Modeling and Differential Equations. His current areas of research include modeling and simulation as well as mathematics education. Weir has been awarded the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, the Superior Civilian Service Award, and the Schieffelin Award for Excellence in Teaching. He has coauthored eight books, including the University Calculus series and the twelfth edition of Thomas’ Calculus.
George B. Thomas, Jr. (late) of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was a professor of mathematics for thirty-eight years; he served as the executive officer of the department for ten years and as graduate registration officer for five years. Thomas held a spot on the board of governors of the Mathematical Association of America and on the executive committee of the mathematics division of the American Society for Engineering Education. His book, Calculus and Analytic Geometry, was first published in 1951 and has since gone through multiple revisions. The text is now in its twelfth edition and continues to guide students through their calculus courses. He also co-authored monographs on mathematics, including the text Probability and Statistics.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
