About The Book

A large number of illustrative worked-out examples are interwoven throughout the text to reinforce the difficult mathematical concepts. The book is student friendly containing plenty of Self-Practice Problems (with hints/answers) at the end of each unit. What distinguishes this up-to-date text is that these problems are arranged in a graded manner for easy comprehension. Previous year`s examination questions are also incorporated at appropriate places. These features along with the clear exposition of the mathematical concepts would make the text highly useful for the engineering students and teachers alike.

Designed primarily to serve as a text for first year undergraduate engineering students, this indispensable, authoritative, comprehensive and accessible text introduces them to mathematical concepts such as differential calculus, differential equations, three-dimensional geometry and vector calculus. The simple, lucid, easily retainable language and systematic presentation enables the student grasp the concepts easily. Difficult concepts have been explained in simpler and easier manner so that in depth understanding of the subject is attained.

About The Author

V.K. Kapoor (born 1947) is a Senior Faculty member, Shri Ram College, University of Delhi, 1968. An eminent and well-established author of international repute with about for decades of teaching experience, he has written books on Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research, and Computer Science Courses. Reading, writing and teaching have always remained his main passion. Fortunately, he remained student of Prof. S. C. Gupta while doing his Post Graduation at University of Delhi during the year 1966-68.

S.C. Gupta (born 1937), has a brilliant academic record with Honours in Mathematics (1957) from Punjab University, postgraduation in Mathematical Statistics (1959) and Mathematics (1966), both from Delhi University, and M.S. in Statistics (1970-72) from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (U.S.A.). Mr. Gupta started his teaching career as a lecturer in the Department of Statistics, Meerut College, Meerut (July 1960 to March 1963) and then as Associate Lecturer in Statistics at I.T.T. Kharagpur (March 1963 to September 1963). He was an eminent and dedicated faculty member of Hindu College, University of Delhi, since September 1963 and retired as Associate Professor in Statistics in November 2002. Mr. Gupta was a `Visiting Scientist` at Clark Atlanta University, Atlanta GA (U.S.A.) from July 1 to August 31, 2002 under MSEIP Programme to work in a special project on "Introductory Statistics", partly funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

During his teaching career spanning over four decades, Mr. Gupta has taught numerous Statistics courses like Statistical Methodology, Theory of Probability, Probability Distributions, Applied Statistics, Sample Surveys and Sampling Techniques, Design of Experiments, Theory of Estimation and Testing of Hypohtesis, etc. at undergraduate (Honours) level. He has also been associated with postgraduate teaching at the Department of Statistics, University of Delhi for over 15 years. A well-established author of international repute, he has written books on Mathematical Statistics, Fundamentals of Statistics, Applied Statistics, Business Statistics, Engineering Mathematics and Matrices, which have been prescribed as textbooks in most of the Universities. Reading, writing and teaching are still his main passion.
