"[A] brilliant book I predict that Dunham's book will itself come to be considered a masterpiece in its field."Victor J. Katz, American Scientist "A joy to read, The Calculus Gallery showcases one of the great intellectual pursuits of all time and, in the words of John von Neumann, 'the first achievement of modern mathematics.' Thirteen scholars, Cited by: This book is a wonderful hybrid of mathematics and "art", hence the title, "The Calculus Gallery".

It is nice to be able to walk though the halls of higher mathematics and appreciate some of it's major "works" just as one would paintings on the wall of a great art gallery/5. “The Calculus Gallery is a wonderful book. The style is inviting; the explanations are clear and accessible.

[William Dunham] -- More than three centuries after its creation, calculus remains a dazzling intellectual achievement and the gateway into higher mathematics.

This book charts its growth and development by sampling. All calculus, as David Bressoud argues here, is divided into four: accumulation, ratios of change, series, and limits.

With its mix of mathematics and history, this splendid book provides a survey of one of humanity’s great intellectual achievements.”—William Dunham, author of The Calculus Gallery: Masterpieces from Newton to Lebesgue.

The book covers all the material of single and multivariable calculus that is normally in a three semester course for science, mathematics, and engineering students. The style is less formal and more personal than the typical text. ( views) APEX Calculus by Gregory Hartman, et al.
