A NEW APPROACH TO CALCULUS THAT BETTER ENABLES STUDENTS TO PROGRESS TO MORE ADVANCED COURSES AND APPLICATIONS Calculus and Analysis: A Combined Approach bridges the gap between mathematical thinking skills and advanced calculus topics by providing an introduction to the key theory for understanding and working with applications in engineering and the sciences. Through a modern approach that utilizes fully calculated problems, the book addresses the importance of calculus and analysis in the applied sciences, with a focus on differential equations. Differing from the common classical approach to the topic, this book presents a modern perspective on calculus that follows motivations from Otto Toeplitz's famous genetic model. The result is an introduction that leads to great simplifications and provides a focused treatment commonly found in the applied sciences, particularly differential equations. The author begins with a short introduction to elementary mathematical logic. Next, the book explores the concept of sets and maps, providing readers with a strong foundation for understanding and solving modern mathematical problems. Ensuring a complete presentation, topics are uniformly presented in chapters that consist of three parts:
