Calculus Made Easy is a book on infinitesimal calculus originally published in by Silvanus P. Thompson , considered a classic and elegant introduction to the subject. The original text continues to be available as of from Macmillan and Co. Martin's Press which provides an introduction; three preliminary chapters explaining functions , limits , and derivatives ; an appendix of recreational calculus problems; and notes for modern readers.
Gardner changes "fifth form boys" to the more American sounding and gender neutral "high school students," updates many now obsolescent mathematical notations or terms, and uses American decimal dollars and cents in currency examples.
Calculus Made Easy ignores the use of limits with its epsilon-delta definition , replacing it with a method of approximating to arbitrary precision directly to the correct answer in the infinitesimal spirit of Leibniz , now formally justified in modern nonstandard analysis and smooth infinitesimal analysis. The original text is now in the public domain under US copyright law although Macmillan's copyright under UK law is reproduced in the edition from St. Martin's Press. It can be freely accessed on Project Gutenberg.
