New textbook: Vector and Geometric Calculus, by Alan Macdonald


New textbook: Vector and Geometric Calculus, by Alan Macdonald. It is intended for the sophomore vector calculus course or for independent reading.

It is a sequel to Macdonald’s Linear and Geometric Algebra. That text is a prerequisite for this one.

Traditional vector calculus topics are covered, as they must be, since readers will encounter them in other texts and out in the world.

The book contains a chapter on differential geometry.

Further information is available at the book’s web site:

    Very good to see that the other shoe has dropped. Alan MacDonald’s first book has been doing a brisk business at Amazon, and there has been interest in a text on the calculus of multi-vectors. He’s been a busy guy.
