Product Description Vector Calculus, Fourth Edition, uses the language and notation of vectors and matrices to teach multivariable calculus. It is ideal for students with a solid background in single-variable calculus who are capable of thinking in more general terms about the topics in the course. This text is distinguished from others by its readable narrative, numerous figures, thoughtfully selected examples, and carefully crafted exercise sets. Colley includes not only basic and advanced exercises, but also mid-level exercises that form a necessary bridge between the two. About the Author Susan Colley is the Andrew and Pauline Delaney Professor of Mathematics at Oberlin College and currently Chair of the Department, having also previously served as Chair. She received S.B. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology prior to joining the faculty at Oberlin in 1983. Her research focuses on enumerative problems in algebraic geometry, particularly concerning multiple-point singularities and higher-order contact of plane curves. Professor Colley has published papers on algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, as well as articles on other mathematical subjects. She has lectured internationally on her research and has taught a wide range of subjects in undergraduate mathematics. Professor Colley is a member of several professional and honorary societies, including the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Association of America, Phi Beta Kappa, and Sigma Xi.
