This re-creation of Lax, Burstein, and Lax's Calculus with purposes and Computing bargains significant motives of the real theorems of unmarried variable calculus. Written with scholars in arithmetic, the actual sciences, and engineering in brain, and revised with their support, it indicates that the topics of calculation, approximation, and modeling are imperative to arithmetic and the most rules of unmarried variable calculus.

We have already seen in Chapter 1 that the value of f'(x) at a point on the curve y = f(x) is a measure of the gradient of the curve at that point. Fig. 1 shows a typical cprve with indications of the intervals where the gradient is positive (y increases as x is increased) and where the gradient is negative (y decreases as x is increased). Also shown are isolated points where the gradient is zero; these are known as stationary points and will be considered in detail in Chapter 6. Fig. 1 The sign of the first derivative.

This function may itself be differentiated with respect t o * (assuming that the derivative exists) to form a function of x known as the second derivative of /(x) and written f"(x). 2. 3. 2 DEFINITIONS AND NOTATION The second derivative of the function/(x) with respect tox is written/"(x) and defined by dx An alternative notation for the second derivative of y = f(x) is dx2 dx\dx/ Similarly the third derivative of y =/(x) is r'(x)=-i{/"(x)}, Sec.
