Techniques of Calculus

It is assumed that the reader of these notes has acquired the basic concepts of one variable calculus and can differentiate and integrate polynomials and has seen some of the applications.

These notes are intended to extend the range of functions that can be differentiated and integrated. They introduce the exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions and discuss the many techniques of integration.
