Ancient Greece Edit The Greek mathematician Menaechmus solved problems and proved theorems by using a method that had a strong resemblance to the use of coordinates and it has sometimes been maintained that he had introduced analytic geometry. His application of reference lines, a diameter and a tangent is essentially no different from our modern use of a coordinate frame, where the distances measured along the diameter from the point of tangency are the abscissas, and the segments parallel to the tangent and intercepted between the axis and the curve are the ordinates. He further developed relations between the abscissas and the corresponding ordinates that are equivalent to rhetorical equations of curves. However, although Apollonius came close to developing analytic geometry, he did not manage to do so since he did not take into account negative magnitudes and in every case the coordinate system was superimposed upon a given curve a posteriori instead of a priori.

Comments on selected exercises are included. Comprised of 18 chapters, this book first presents answers and solutions to exercises relating to functions and graphs.
The next chapter is about derivatives and covers topics ranging from the slope problem to limits, sums and products, and quotients and square roots, along with limits and continuity.
Subsequent chapters deal with applications of differentiation; exponential and trigonometric functions; techniques and applications of integration; inverse functions; and plane analytic geometry. The rest of the book focuses on approximation and convergence; power series; space geometry and vectors; vector functions and curves; higher partials and their applications; and double and multiple integrals.
This monograph will be a useful resource for undergraduate students of mathematics and algebra. Table of Contents.
