Good books about Newtonian mathematics.

  1. Feb 15, 2007 #1
    Any one recommend some good books about Newtonian maths, his theories etc, Calculus, Liebnitz ,whatever, or any entry level calculus books? I'm asking on behalf of a friend who wants to get back into maths, so it should be from an introductory level and up?

    I learnt mine from text books, that aren't widely available, ie their university material, so any help would be appreciated.

    I don't think he meant for his friend to read Principia :biggrin: (which, of course, you can get by typing prin... into google).

    SD - does he want a popular maths book or a textbook?

    e2a: i see a new reply...

    He's trying to get back into maths so anything that helps him do that.

    The book I recommended will do a good job in that respect, I believe. It's not very expensive and gives good insight on mathematics for people that have either forgotten it or feel weak in it.
