This book is a complete English translation of Augustin-Louis Cauchy´s historic 1823 text (his first devoted to calculus), Résumé des le ç ons sur le calcul infinit é simal , ´´Summary of Lectures on the Infinitesimal Calculus,´´ originally written to benefit his École Polytechnic students in Paris. Within this single text, Cauchy succinctly lays out and rigorously develops all of the topics one encounters in an introductory study of the calculus, from his classic definition of the limit to his detailed analysis of the convergence properties of infinite series. In between, the reader will find a full treatment of differential and integral calculus, including the main theorems of calculus and detailed methods of differentiating and integrating a wide variety of functions. Real, single variable calculus is the main focus of the text, but Cauchy spends ample time exploring the extension of his rigorous development to include functions of multiple variables as well as complex functions. This translation maintains the same notation and terminology of Cauchy´s original work in the hope of delivering as honest and true a Cauchy experience as possible so that the modern reader can experience his work as it may have been like 200 years ago. This book can be used with advantage today by anyone interested in the history of the calculus and analysis. In addition, it will serve as a particularly valuable supplement to a traditional calculus text for those readers who desire a way to create more texture in a conventional calculus class through the introduction of original historical sources.

Covering the development of the atomic bomb during the Second World War, the origins and early course of the Cold War and the advent of the hydrogen bomb in the early 1950s, Churchill and the Bomb in War and Cold War explores a still neglected aspect of Winston Churchill´s career: his relationship with and thinking on nuclear weapons. Kevin Ruane shows how Churchill went from regarding the bomb as a weapon of war in the struggle with Nazi Germany to viewing it as a weapon of Communist containment (and even punishment) in the early Cold War before, in the 1950s, advocating and arguably pioneering what would become known as mutually assured destruction as the key to preventing the Cold War flaring into a calamitous nuclear war. While other studies of Churchill have touched on his evolving views on nuclear weapons, few historians have given this hugely important issue the kind of dedicated and sustained treatment it deserves. In Churchill and the Bomb in War and Cold War, however, Kevin Ruane has undertaken extensive primary research in Britain, the United States and Europe and accessed a wide array of secondary literature in producing an immensely digestible yet detailed, insightful and provocative account of Churchill´s nuclear hopes and fears. 1.

Kings and Clans of the Midwest is a near-future novel set in the Midwestern United States. A plausible explanation is depicted on how the characters watch the dollar become worthless before their eyes. Without a viable currency, the economy and the country quickly slide into an apocalyptic collapse. Characters from various backgrounds are desperate to survive in a situation that has rapidly diminishing resources and many are ready to resort to the worst kinds of evil to get their ´´fair share´´. Very few in this dystopian apocalyptic setting have a clue about how to protect themselves, nor are many of them preppers. They don´t all talk and act the same way, and everything doesn´t always go right for them; nor do they all survive. Characters are all forced to join one of the wide range of colorful and often violent factions. Some seek to establish a new kind of society and take specific, detailed steps of their own design. Those who oversaw the ruin of the country, led by the US president, are desperate to cling to any power they can. The POTUS illegally invites the United Nations to help Homeland Security disarm its citizens and restore order to the nation. Many of the independently minded souls of the Midwest see things differently. . 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph B. Kearns.
