Calculus is certainly one of the pillars of modern science and the cornerstone to most applications of mathematics in other disciplines. In order to apply its basic ideas to real world problems, additional study of subjects such as differential equations and numerical analysis is eventually needed. However, the authors feel that short introductions to these topics, rather than scare the students, may show them the benefits of mastering the mathematical computational tools presented in this book.
