    Preface to the Third Edition

    The many problems and solutions provided by the late Professor Spiegel remain invaluable to students as they seek to master the intricacies of the calculus and related fields of mathematics. These remain an integral part of this manuscript. In this third edition, clarifications have been provided. In addition, the continuation of the interrelationships and the significance of concepts, begun in the second edition, have been extended.

    Preface to the Second Edition

    A key ingredient in learning mathematics is problem solving. This is the strength, and no doubt the reason for the longevity of Professor Spiegels advanced calculus. His collection of solved and unsolved problems remains a part of this second edition.

    Advanced calculus is not a single theory. However, the various sub-theories, including vector analysis, infinite series, and special functions, have in common a dependency on the fundamental notions of the cal-culus. An important objective of this second edition has been to modernize terminology and concepts, so that the interrelationships become clearer. For example, in keeping with present usage functions of a real variable are automatically single valued; differentials are defined as linear functions, and the universal character of vector notation and theory are given greater emphasis. Further explanations have been included and, on oc-casion, the appropriate terminology to support them.

    The order of chapters is modestly rearranged to provide what may be a more logical structure.A brief introduction is provided for most chapters. Occasionally, a historical note is included; however,

    for the most part the purpose of the introductions is to orient the reader to the content of the chapters.I thank the staff of McGraw-Hill. Former editor, Glenn Mott, suggested that I take on the project. Peter

    McCurdy guided me in the process. Barbara Gilson, Jennifer Chong, and Elizabeth Shannon made valuable contributions to the finished product. Joanne Slike and Maureen Walker accomplished the very difficult task of combining the old with the new and, in the process, corrected my errors. The reviewer, Glenn Ledder, was especially helpful in the choice of material and with comments on various topics.
