The first eight chapters of this book were originally published in 1966 as the successful Introduction to Elementary Vector Analysis. In 1970, the text was considerably expanded to include six new chapters covering additional techniques (the vector product and the triple products) and applications in pure and applied mathematics. It is that version which is reproduced here. The book provides a valuable introduction to vectors for teachers and students of mathematics, science and engineering in sixth forms, technical colleges, colleges of education and universities.
