From time to time, examples turn up in circuit surgery that rely on integrals & other calculus.

I'm not great at maths in general, but when I see equations with violin sound holes - my eyes glaze over!

Please can anyone reccomend any sources of reading, in the - from; "getting started" onwards?

Hi Ian,

I found this some time ago but haven't got round to reading it yet.

http://djm.cc/library/Calculus_Made_Easy_Thompson.pdf

(The website home page lists this (and many others) under the heading "Public-domain books and papers") (Hope this is ok ARW)

Hi Ian

I can recommend:-

"Understanding the Mathematics of Electronics"
By F.A Wilson

Bernard Babani (Publishing) Ltd
First Published - Jan 1997

Paperback, 216 Pages

ISBN 0 85934 383 9

This book includes a very good chapter on Complex Algebra and also a chapter entitled "Introduction to Calculus".

When I bought this book quite a few years ago it cost £5.99

Cheers

James

Thanks also James - I'll do a search now.

Hi Ian. The site below contains loads of video tutorials. I used it to try to gain info on PHP/SQL but I also noticed that there are tutorials for what are called, “pre, basic and advanced calculus,” under the 'Mathematics' tab. It's all in American though.

This isn't an endorsement by the way, or otherwise. All I can say is that I now know that I'll never have time to build anything more than a basic database using command-prompt SQL and I also know that PHP is something that I should perhaps encourage my grandchildren to have a basic knowledge of...

My usual tactic is to dl as much info on a subject as I can find, then nail 2 - 3 hours in my daily routine to spend studying what I've got.i
