Calculus I

By Tunc Geveci

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-93555-142-3, 546 pages


Calculus I is the first volume of the three-volume calculus sequence by Tunc Geveci. The series is designed for the usual three-semester calculus sequence that the majority of science and engineering majors in the United States are required to take.The distinguishing features of the book are the focus on the concepts, essential functions and formulas of calculus and the effective use of graphics as an integral part of the exposition. Formulas that are not significant and exercises that involve artificial algebraic difficulties are avoided.

The three-volume calculus sequence is organized as follows:
  • Calculus I covers the usual topics of the first semester: limits, continuity, the derivative, the integral and special functions such as exponential functions, logarithms and inverse trigonometric functions.
  • Calculus II covers techniques and applications of integration, improper integrals, infinite series, linear and separable first-order differential equations, parametrized curves and polar coordinates.
  • Calculus III covers vectors, the differential calculus of functions of several variables, multiple integrals, line integrals, surface integrals, Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem and Gauss' Theorem.

Teaching Resources
Students who purchase the book have access to the student's solution manual that contains the solutions of odd-numbered problems. Adopting instructors have access to an instructor's solution manual that contains the solutions of all the problems. Both manuals can be requested by emailing


Professor Geveci has published research papers on the stability and accuracy of approximation schemes for partial differential equations. In recent years his emphasis has been on the improvement of the teaching and exposition of calculus. He has taught calculus, advanced calculus and complex analysis courses for many years at San Diego State University.
