Publication Date 1 Jan 1979
OverviewThis volume reviews differential and integral calculus for functions of one variable, differential calculus for several variables, differential equations, probability, difference equations, and matrices -- all with special emphasis on applications in the life sciences. *Covers a broad range of examples from the biological and medical sciences. *Focuses on the use of theorems to solve problems, rather than on the mechanics of proving theorems. *Includes sections on model-building to help readers apply mathematics to problems in the biological sciences. *Outlines step-by-step procedures for solving "word problems." *Features many worked examples - both purely algebraic and biological. *Presents rules for differentiation in verbal form. *Provides an introductory pre-calculus review chapter.
