**Main book**

**Essential calculus**

Author: James Stewart Australia : Thomson, 2008. – 885tr. ; 25cm

ISBN: 049510860X – 9780495108603 This book is a response to those instructors who feel that calculus textbooks are too big. In writing the book James Stewart asked himself: What is essential for a three-semester calculus course for scientists and engineers? Stewart’s ESSENTIAL CALCULUS offers a concise approach to teaching calculus that focuses on major concepts and supports those concepts with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. Essential Calculus is only 850 pages-two-thirds the size of Stewart’s other calculus texts (CALCULUS, Fifth Edition and CALCULUS, EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, Fifth Edition)-and yet it contains almost all of the same topics. The author achieved this relative brevity mainly by condensing the exposition and by putting some of the features on the website, http://www.StewartCalculus.com. Despite the reduced size of the book, there is still a modern flavor: Conceptual understanding and technology are not neglected, though they are not as prominent as in Stewart’s other books. ESSENTIAL CALCULUS has been written with the same attention to detail, eye for innovation, and meticulous accuracy that have made Stewart’s textbooks the best-selling calculus texts in the world.

**Calculus for Engineers**

Author: Donald Trim

ISBN 0-13-085603-7

Calculus for Engineers,Fourth Canadian Edition, is appropriate for first-year university-level engineering/physical science students who are studying calculus. Using an early transcendental approach, Trim emphasizes practical applications, many of which are drawn from various engineering fields. Students begin with basic practice drills and then progress to problems that require the integration of information learned in previous chapters. In this way, students develop an understanding of the mathematical procedure, rather than simply plugging numbers into formulae.

**Calculus**

Author: Stanley I. Grossman 5th Edition, ISBN 0-03-096420-2 Stressing an intuitive rather than rigorous/formal approach to calculus, this student-oriented text covers all of the standard topics. Integration of chapter-end computer exercises and calculator exercises throughout the text and a graphing calculator appendix recognise the impact of technology on calculus. An abundance of interesting applications from engineering, physics, biology, chemistry, economics, astronomy, medicine and pure mathematics shows the far-reaching relevance of calculus. An algebra review is provided in Chapter 10. Numerous examples throughout the text contain all the algebraic steps, with key steps highlighted in colour, needed to complete the solution. The examples are complimented by more than 7,000 section and chapter exercises featuring drill, application, calculator, “show/prove/disprove”, and challenge problems. Each problem set begins with “Self-quiz” questions to help students evaluate their understanding of basic ideas in the section. The development of calculus is outlined in extensive historical notes. Biographical sketches impart information on renowned mathematicians.

**The Calculus of Retirement Income: Financial Models for Pension Annuities and Life Insurance.**

Milevsky, Moshe A Cambridge University Press. © 2006. Books24x7 The book introduces and develops the basic actuarial models and underlying pricing of life-contingent pension annuities and life insurance from a unique financial perspective. The ideas and techniques are then applied to the real-world problem of generating sustainable retirement income towards the end of the human life-cycle. The role of lifetime income, longevity insurance, and systematic withdrawal plans are investigated in a parsimonious framework. The underlying technology and terminology of the book are based on continuous-time financial economics by merging analytic laws of mortality with the dynamics of equity markets and interest rates. Nonetheless, the book requires a minimal background in mathematics and emphasizes applications and examples more than proofs and theorems. It can serve as an ideal textbook for an applied course on wealth management and retirement planning in addition to being a reference for quantitatively-inclined financial planners.
