The subject of multivariable analysis is of interest to pure and applied mathematicians, physicists, electrical, mechanical and systems engineers, mathematical economists, biologists, and statisticians. This introductory text provides students and researchers in the above fields with various ways of handling some of the useful but difficult concepts encountered in dealing with the machinery of multivariable analysis and differential forms on manifolds. The approach here is to make such concepts as concrete as possible.
Highlights and key features:
* systematic exposition, supported by numerous examples and exercises from the computational to the theoretical
* brief development of linear algebra in Rn
* review of the elements of metric space theory
* treatment of standard multivariable material: differentials as linear transformations, the inverse and implicit function theorems, Taylor's theorem, the change of variables for multiple integrals (the most complex proof in the book)
* Lebesgue integration introduced in concrete way rather than via measure theory
* latar chapters move beyond Rn to manifolds and analysis on manifolds, covering the wedge product, differential forms, and the generalized Stokes' theorem
* bibliography and comprehensive index
Core topics in multivariable analysis that are basic for senior undergraduates and graduate studies in differential geometry and for analysis in N dimensions and on manifolds are covered. Aside from mathematical maturity, prerequisites are a one-semester undergraduate course in advanced calculus or analysis, and linear algebra. Additionally, researchers working in the areas of dynamical systems, control theory and optimization, general relativity and electromagnetic phenomena may use the book as a self-study resource.
