Maxima and Minima without Calculus by Ivan Niven
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The purpose of this book is to put together in one place the basic elementary techniques for solving problems in maxima and minima other than the methods of calculus and linear programming. The emphasis is not on the individual problems, but on methods that solve large classes of problems. The many chapters of the book can be read independently, without references to what precedes or follows. Besides the many problems solved in the book, others are left to the reader to solve, with sketches of solutions given in the later pages.
