Exploring the mathematical process of the calculus, a layperson's tour covers its principles including the Mean Value Theorem while revealing how it explains the most befuddling mysteries about time, space, and the universe. 15,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
The calculus represents humanity's great and profound meditation on the theme of continuity. Time and space are given voice, and speed and area are sub-ordinated to the harsh concept of a limit. The introduction of the real numbers allows the landscape of mathematical analysis to be suffused with thrilling light. In that lit-up landscape, the infinite is for the first time charmed into compliance, men and women gaining the eerie power to ask of certain processes, Suppose it goes on forever, what then? and finding within the calculus a comprehensive answer.
