Integeral and Differential Calculus – N. Piskunov

Piskunov’s book is considered to be a classic.

This text is designed as a course of mathematics for higher technical schools. It contains many worked examples that illustrate the theoretical material and serve as models for solving problems. The first two chapters “Number. Variable. Function” and “Limit.  Continuity of a Function” have been made as short as possible. Some of the questions that are usually discussed in these chapters have been put in the third and subsequent chapters without loss of continuity. This has made it possible to take up very early the basic concept of differential calculus—the derivative— which is required in the study of technical subjects. Experience has shown this arrangement of the material to be the best and most convenient for the student.

A large number of problems have been included, many of which illustrate the interrelationships of mathematics and other disciplines. The problems are specially selected (and in sufficient number) for each section of the course thus helping the student to master the theoretical material. To a large extent, this makes the use of a separate book of problems unnecessary and extends the usefulness of this text as a course of mathematics for  self-instruction.

This was a long due.

This was the message that I got from vivisimo:

It’s nice to know that a member(s) from are continue contributing to the ebook community.

I have scanned N. Piskunov – Differential and Integral Calculus 1969, and intended to post on LNU, but too bad, the site’s now closed.

I think your site is the best place to post this book, a MIR books’ site.

The book is 20MB size, in DJVU, 600dpi, OCRed, no cover:

Thanks for posting this vivisimo

The book was translated from the Russian by G. Yankovsky and was published by Mir in 1969. Subsequently it was also republished as a single and two volume format.

You can get the book  here.

  1. Anon says:

    Thanks a ton for this wonderful book !!!

  2. How to edit PDF files??????????? plz help

  3. Where can i get MIR publishers books in any language on net in ebook format.

  4. ati says:

    I can’t download this book. After clicking the “Request Download Ticket” button, it asks to solve
    the reCaptcha challenge below, but I don’t see any challenge. Is the file frozen again ?

  5. Thanks a ton, vivisimo!!!!!!!!!

  6. Bro Damitr plz give me list of books which u dont have i am going to bring. I am going to buy books.

    • damitr says:

      Get as many as you can. Even if there are multiple copies they are worth having as they are all out of print now.
      Best of luck for book hunting!


      PS: I have about 300-400 Mir titles are there any particular ones you want to be listed?

  7. Awani Kumar says:

    Dear Sir,
    You are doing a great service to all mankind. Generations will remember you for your wonderful compilation of Mir titles. May God bless you with health, wealth and happiness.

  8. Suman Chowdhury says:

    whooo…….whooo………………….let’s read and teach piskunov’s “immortal thesis”…………….whoever has posted this book has done a great favor to many “bookworms” like me ready to digest the knowledge of this book!Well each of us must share these books with the needy students who have poor financial background……………………….Please contact me for further teaching or suggestion for I.I.T-JEE or related studies or any other study discussions or coaching in(online)……………………………

    VIVISIMO sir you are really a great and kind hearted man,you have done a great service to the humankind………….may god bless you………..I will teach my students through this book!Atleast I got some one of my MENTALITY,I dreamt if there were any kind hearted people like u who could contribute their books for students,AND yes i have at last found a person like you.
    In my childhood a professor Similarly kind hearted like you donated me books on which I passed in IIT-JEE………………..I remember that emotional moment!

    This book is pure quality. Thank you so much

  11. nandanrahul says:

    the best book. thanks to dmitr

  12. itachi says:

    you have the solution manual of this book?

  13. Mirseeker says:

    Link dead, Please upload to another site. Please.
    I really appreciate your work. FREE KNOWLEDGE

  14. Vardis Vardakis says:

    There seems to be some problem with the link When clicked, it leads to
    the page which has a link titled: “request download ticket”.
    However, clicking on that link and entering the required CAPTCHA does NOT present
    a link for the file to be downloaded. Instead it presents a link:
    “signup for a free account in order to download this file”. But even if one does indeed sign up
    the file is NOT made available, the same process is repeated in a vicious circle.
    Strangely Piskunov is the ONLY title for which I’ve seen this behavior in the site, any other MirTitles file I’ve tried gets retrieved without a problem.
    Could anyone please re-post the file in some decent site (e.g., )
    The BergFiles link given by another user above simply re-directs to,
    so it’s not really “another” link.
    Thank you.

    • damitr says:

      Thanks for the detailed feedback. I tried to download the file and faced no problems. But from now onwards for the new uploads along with filecloud, we may also have links on other sites along with torrents. Links for Piskunov have been created at The Internet Archive (direct download and Torrent) and TPB (Magnet/Torrent) also.

      For new links to Piskunov see the update here.
