The art of teaching, Mark Van Doren said, is the art of assisting discovery. I have tried to
write a book that assists students in discovering calculus—both for its practical power and
its surprising beauty. In this edition, as in the first six editions, I aim to convey to the student
a sense of the utility of calculus and develop technical competence, but I also strive
to give some appreciation for the intrinsic beauty of the subject. Newton undoubtedly
experienced a sense of triumph when he made his great discoveries. I want students to
share some of that excitement.
Success in your calculus course starts here! James Stewart's Calculus texts are worldwide best-sellers for a reason: they are clear, accurate, and filled with relevant, real-world examples. With Calculus (Seventh Edition), Stewart conveys not only the utility of calculus to help you develop technical competence, but also gives you an appreciation for the intrinsic beauty of the subject. His patient examples and built-in learning aids will help you build your mathematical confidence and achieve your goals in the course!
Understanding the Linux Virtual Memory Manager
Finally, a comprehensive guide to the Linux VM!
VM's behavior affects every Linux kernel subsystem and dramatically impacts overall performance. But until now, there was only one way to understand VM: study the poorly documented source one line at a time. Now there's an easier, faster alternative. This book describes VM in unprecedented...
The Art of Computer Networking This book, like so many, has grown from an undergraduate Networking course. Its current content is rather more than a single course could comfortably cover, though it is all relevant for an adventurer into the jungle of networks.
It is somewhat biased towards the Internet and the protocols the Internet uses, namely TCP/IP. Other network...
Mining of Massive Datasets
This book evolved from material developed over several years by Anand Rajaraman
and Jeff Ullman for a one-quarter course at Stanford. The course
CS345A, titled “Web Mining,” was designed as an advanced graduate course,
although it has become accessible and interesting to advanced undergraduates.
