The book is divided into seven chapters, wherein the first of which presents the introductory concepts, such as the functional notation and fundamental definitions; the roots of equations; and limits and continuity. The text then tackles the techniques and applications of differentiation and integration. Geometry of two dimensions and complex numbers are also encompassed in the book. The text will be very invaluable to students of pure and applied mathematics and engineering, as well as those mathematicians and engineers who need a refresher on the topic.
