In this post, we will see the book *Introductory Mathematics for Engineers: Lectures in Higher Mathematics *by A. D. My*š*kis. The book is around 800 pages and is very exhaustive in the number of topics it deals in. Starting from functions and their graphs, it traverses the mathematical landscape of plane and solid analytic geometry, limits and continuity, matrices and systems of linear equations, differential and integral calculus, definite, indefinite and multiple integrals, partial derivatives, differential equations, vectors, linear algebra, complex numbers, functions of several variables, series, probability etc.

About The Book

The present book is based on lectures given by the author over a number of years to students of various eng1!1eermg and physics. The book includes some optional can be skipped for the first reading. The corresponding Items m the table of contents are marked by an asterisk.

…

The book is composed in such a way that it is possible to use it both for studying in a college under the guidance of a teacher and for self-education. The subject matter of the book is divided into small sections so that the reader could study the material in suitable order and to any extent depending on the profession and the needs of the reader. It is also intended that the book can be used by students taking a correspondence course and by the readers who have some prerequisites in higher mathematics and want to perfect their knowledge by reading some chapters of the book.

…

The book can be of use to readers of various professions dealing with applications of mathematics in their work. Modern applied mathematics of many important special divisions which are not included m this book. The author intends to write another book devoted to some supplementary topics such as the theory of functions of a complex argument, variational calculus, mathematical physics, some special questions of the theory of ordinary differential equations and so on.

The book has interesting ways to treat affine mappings (pages 344-345) and non-linear mappings (pages 358-359).

The book was translated from the Russian by V. M. Volosov and was first published by Mir in 1972.
