Synopsis This book is a student guide to the applications of differential and integral calculus to vectors. Such material is normally covered in the later years of an engineering or applied physical sciences degree course, or the first and second years of a mathematics degree course. The emphasis is on those features of the subject that will appeal to a user of mathematics, rather than the person who is concerned mainly with rigorous proofs. The aim is to assist the reader to acquire good proficiency in algebraic manipulation that can be used in critically assessing the results obtained from using graphics calculators and algebraic software packages.
