Analysis is a core subject in most undergraduate mathematics degrees. It is elegant, clever and rewarding to learn, but it is hard. Even the best students find it challenging, and those who are unprepared often find it incomprehensible at first. This book aims to ensure that no student need be unprepared.

This is an excellent textbook on analysis and it has several unique features: Proofs of heat kernel estimates, the Nash inequality and the logarithmic Sobolev inequality are topics that are seldom treated on the level of a textbook. Best constants in several inequalities, such as Young's inequality and the logarithmic Sobolev inequality, are also included. A thorough treatment of rearrangement inequalities and competing symmetries appears in book form for the first time. There is an extensive treatment of potential theory and its applications to quantum mechanics, which, again, is unique at this level. Uniform convexity of $L^p$ space is treated very carefully. The presentation of this important subject is highly unusual for a textbook. All the proofs provide deep insights into the theorems. This book sets a new standard for a graduate textbook in analysis. --Shing-Tung Yau, Harvard University For some number of years, Rudin's ``Real and Complex'', and a few other analysis books, served as the canonical choice for the book to use, and to teach from, in a first year grad analysis course. Lieb-Loss offers a refreshing alternative: It begins with a down-to-earth intro to measure theory, $L^p$ and all that ... It aims at a wide range of essential applications, such as the Fourier transform, and series, inequalities, distributions, and Sobolev spaces--PDE, potential theory, calculus of variations, and math physics (Schrodinger's equation, the hydrogen atom, Thomas-Fermi theory ... to mention a few). The book should work equally well in a one-, or in a two-semester course. The first half of the book covers the basics, and the rest will be great for students to have, regardless of whether or not it gets to be included in a course. --Palle E. T. Jorgensen, University of Iowa

Written for anyone beginning a research project, this introductory book takes you through the process of analysing your data from start to finish. The author sets out an easy-to-use model for coding data in order to break it down into parts, and then to reassemble it to create a meaningful picture of the phenomenon under study. Full of useful advice, the book guides the reader through the last difficult integrating phase of qualitative analysis including diagramming, memoing, thinking aloud, and using one's feelings, and how to incorporate the use of software where appropriate. Ideal for third year undergraduate students, master students, postgraduates and anybody beginning a research project, the book includes examples covering a wide range of subjects - making the book useful for students across the social science disciplines. Hennie Boeije is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Methodology and Statistics of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences at Utrecht University, The Netherlands.

Offering a detailed introduction to the practice of data analysis, this book is both user-friendly and theoretically grounded. Drawing on his extensive experience of qualitative research, Douglas Ezzy reviews approaches to data analysis in established research traditions including ethnography, phenomenology and symbolic interactionism, alongside the newer approaches informed by cultural studies and feminism. He explains the difference between inductive, deductive and abductive theory building, provides a guide to computer-assisted analysis and outlines techniques such as journal writing, team meetings and participant reviews. This text is one of the first to treat computer assisted data analysis as an integral part of qualitative research. Exceptionally well written, this is a valuable reference for research students and professional researchers in the social sciences and health.

Data Analysis

This accessible introduction to data analysis focuses on the interpretation of statistical results, in particular those which come from nonexperimental social research. It will provide social science researchers with the tools necessary to select and evaluate statistical tests appropriate for their research question. Using a consistent data-set throughout the book to illustrate the various analytic techniques, Michael Lewis-Beck covers topics such as univariate statistics, measures of association, the statistical significance of the relationship between two variables, simple regression in which the dependent variable is influenced by a single independent variable, and multiple regression.

A First Course in Mathematical Analysis

Mathematical Analysis (often called Advanced Calculus) is generally found by students to be one of their hardest courses in Mathematics. This text uses the so-called sequential approach to continuity, differentiability and integration to make it easier to understand the subject.Topics that are generally glossed over in the standard Calculus courses are given careful study here. For example, what exactly is a 'continuous' function? And how exactly can one give a careful definition of 'integral'? The latter question is often one of the mysterious points in a Calculus course - and it is quite difficult to give a rigorous treatment of integration! The text has a large number of diagrams and helpful margin notes; and uses many graded examples and exercises, often with complete solutions, to guide students through the tricky points. It is suitable for self-study or use in parallel with a standard university course on the subject.

The first handbook of its kind, giving in one volume, etailed information on both the analysis and quality control of fruit and vegetable products. Authoritative, need-based and up-to-date, the book has been principally designed to meet the day-to-day requirements.Starting from the analysis of common constituents, the book covers methods of analysis of specific raw materials and containers used in processing measurement of different quality attributes, sensory evaluation, microbiological and microanalytical examinations, determination of thermal process time, and examination of specific fruit and vegetable products. The last few chapters are devoted to statistical quality control, preparation of standard solutions and tables required for day-to-day use. Sufficient theoretical information is included in each chapter before the methods are described. Each method is self-contained, easy to follow, time-tested and complete in all respects. Wherever needed, reference values or standards-PFA, ISI or FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius are given. With its comprehensive coverage and up-to-date information, the book would be useful to public analysts, factory personnel, processors, research workers, and students of food science, food technology, agriculture and home science.
