"Basic Calculus," Part 1, 229 pages, Springer-Verlag
Tokyo, December 2001.
Abstract - A Japanese
translation of the book by Alexander J. Hahn, Springer-Verlag
New York, 1998. This introductory calculus text is developed
by the author through his teaching of an honors calculus
course at Notre Dame. The book develops calculus, as well
as the necessary trigonometry and analytic geometry, from
within the relevant historical context, and yet it is
not a textbook in the history of mathematics as such.
The notation is modern, and the material is selected to
cover the basics of the subject. Special emphasis is placed
on pedagogy throughout. While emphasizing the broad applications
of the subject, emphasis is placed on the mathematical
content of the subject.
