This is the plain TeX source for the Whitman Calculus book. The
tarball calcbook.tbz should contain
everything needed to produce the book other than files that should be
in every TeX distribution. There is a Makefile that automates a
typical build, and a script make_pdfs.pl that produces pdf files of
Everything works for me in a fairly standard
Ubuntu 18.04 install.
This tarball was last updated on July 14, 2021, 10:22. If you want to produce the html
version of the book, there are some auxilliary files that should be
placed in the directory containing the live html. By default, "make
online" will produce html output in ~/public_html/calculus". You
should download live.tbz and unpack it in the
~/public_html/calculus with "
tar xjf live.tbz".
You can copy the entire directory tree under ~/public_html/calculus to
another server and everything should work. (I generate the html in
~/public_html/calculus on my own computer, then upload to the public
server when all appears correct.)
The book can now be made in four flavors using the provided Makefile: single or multivariable, early or late transcendentals. The Makefile can also produce the html versions of the two multivariable books.
I would be delighted to receive corrections, suggestions, and contributions to the book. I would particularly appreciate receiving new exercises and solutions to exercises in LaTeX or plain TeX that could end up in a student solutions manual.
Of course, if you need major modifications to adapt the book to your needs, you are welcome to produce your own new version from the source.
I would appreciate knowing of anyone who uses this book in a class, and also would appreciate being able to see a copy of any modified version.
