 Publisher's Summary
 Vector Calculus, Fourth Edition, uses the language and notation of vectors and matrices to teach multivariable calculus. It is ideal for students with a solid background in singlevariable calculus who are capable of thinking in more general terms about the topics in the course. This text is distinguished from others by its readable narrative, numerous figures, thoughtfully selected examples, and carefully crafted exercise sets. Colley includes not only basic and advanced exercises, but also midlevel exercises that form a necessary bridge between the two.
