edition of Vector
Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Differential Forms: A Unified Approach, with
the corresponding student solution manual.
818 pages, hardcover, smythe-sewn binding, 8 x 10
inches $87. Sept. 2015
This 5th edition contains all the things that made the earlier editions different from other textbooks. Among others:
- Integrating linear algebra and multivariable calculus
- Using effective algorithms to prove the main theorems (Newton's method and the implicit function theorem, for instance)
- A new approach to both Riemann integration and Lebesgue integration
- Manifolds and a serious introduction to differential geometry
- A new way of introducing differential forms and the exterior derivative.
There is also new material, in response to requests from computer science colleagues:
- More big matrices! We included the Perron-Frobenius theorem, and its application to Google's PageRank algorithm
- More singular values! We
included a detailed proof of the singular value decomposition, and show
how it applies to facial recognition: "how does Facebook apply names to
Other changes are more cosmetic: unsuccessful exercises were removed,
about 40 new exercises added, new examples added, some shaky proofs
improved, and more.

Calculus 5th edition
for a very
particular type of student, one who accepts that reading and learning
mathematics will no longer a a plug-and-chug activity, one who is
intrigued by connections of mathematical ideas with one another, and
more specifically, one who is looking forward to learning a vast amount
of mathematics" — MAA

treatment of linear algebra, and how it can be applied to the iterative
solution of elliptic boundary-value problems. In Chapter 5
the author attacks the interesting and difficult problem of
comparing the numerical work required to solve large elliptic problems
by his SOR-like AGA method, with the
numerical work required using
newer computational methods, such as Krylov subspace methods and
His conclusions here are quite unexpected! Indeed,
for some problems, he found that the SOR-like methods were
Krylov subspace methods by several orders of
