For over three decades, this best-selling classic has been used by thousands of students in the United States and abroad as a must-have textbook for a transitional course from calculus to analysis. It has proven to be very useful for mathematics majors who have no previous experience with rigorous proofs. Its friendly style unlocks the mystery of writing proofs, while carefully examining the theoretical basis for calculus. Proofs are given in full, and the large number of well-chosen examples and exercises range from routine to challenging. The second edition preserves the book’s clear and concise style, illuminating discussions, and simple, well-motivated proofs. New topics include material on the irrationality of pi, the Baire category theorem, Newton's method and the secant method, and continuous nowhere-differentiable functions.
Designed for students having no previous experience with rigorous proofs, this text can be used immediately after standard calculus courses. It is highly recommended for anyone planning to study advanced analysis, as well as for future secondary school teachers. A limited number of concepts involving the real line and functions on the real line are studied, while many abstract ideas, such as metric spaces and ordered systems, are avoided completely. A thorough treatment of sequences of numbers is used as a basis for studying standard calculus topics, and optional sections invite students to study such topics as metric spaces and Riemann-Stieltjes integrals.
Designed for students having no previous experience with rigorous proofs, this text on analysis is intended to follow a standard calculus course. It will be useful for students planning to continue in mathematics (with, for example, complex variables, differential equations, numerical analysis, multivariable calculus, or statistics), as well as for future secondary school teachers.

It is hard to imagine that another elementary analysis book would contain ma terial that in some vision could qualify as being new and needed for a discipline already abundantly endowed with literature. However, to understand analysis, be ginning with the undergraduate calculus student through the sophisticated math ematically maturing graduate student, the need for examples and exercises seems to be a constant ingredient to foster deeper mathematical understanding. To a talented mathematical student, many elementary concepts seem clear on their first encounter. However, it is the belief of the authors, this understanding can be deepened with a guided set of exercises leading from the so called "elementary" to the somewhat more "advanced" form. Insight is instilled into the material which can be drawn upon and implemented in later development. The first year graduate student attempting to enter into a research environment begins to search for some original unsolved area within the mathematical literature. It is hard for the student to imagine that in many circumstances the advanced mathematical formulations of sophisticated problems require attacks that draw upon, what might be termed elementary techniques. However, if a student has been guided through a serious repertoire of examples and exercises, he/she should certainly see connections whenever they are encountered.

Designed for courses in advanced calculus and introductory real analysis, the second edition of Elementary Classical Analysis strikes a careful and thoughtful balance between pure and applied mathematics, with the emphasis on techniques important to classical analysis, without vector calculus or complex analysis. As such, it’s a perfect teaching and learning resource for mathematics undergraduate courses in classical analysis. The book includes detailed coverage of the foundations of the real number system and focuses primarily on analysis in Euclidean space with a view towards application. As well as being suitable for students taking pure mathematics, it can also be used by students taking engineering and physical science courses. There’s now even more material on variable calculus, expanding the textbook’s already considerable coverage of the subject.
From Elementary Calculus to the Beginnings of Analysis

This book provides a one-semester undergraduate introduction to counterexamples in calculus and analysis. It helps engineering, natural sciences, and mathematics students tackle commonly made erroneous conjectures. The book encourages students to think critically and analytically, and helps to reveal common errors in many examples. In this book, the authors present an overview of important concepts and results in calculus and real analysis by considering false statements, which may appear to be true at first glance. The book covers topics concerning the functions of real variables, starting with elementary properties, moving to limits and continuity, and then to differentiation and integration. The first part of the book describes single-variable functions, while the second part covers the functions of two variables. The many examples presented throughout the book typically start at a very basic level and become more complex during the development of exposition. At the end of each chapter, supplementary exercises of different levels of complexity are provided, the most difficult of them with a hint to the solution. This book is intended for students who are interested in developing a deeper understanding of the topics of calculus. The gathered counterexamples may also be used by calculus instructors in their classes.
This text is an introduction to functional analysis which requires readers to have a minimal background in linear algebra and real analysis at the first-year graduate level. Prerequisite knowledge of general topology or Lebesgue integration is not required. The book explains the principles and applications of functional analysis and explores the development of the basic properties of normed linear, inner product spaces and continuous linear operators defined in these spaces. Though Lebesgue integral is not discussed, the book offers an in-depth knowledge on the numerous applications of the abstract results of functional analysis in differential and integral equations, Banach limits, harmonic analysis, summability and numerical integration. Also covered in the book are versions of the spectral theorem for compact, symmetric operators and continuous, self adjoint operators.
Organic Elemental Analysis: Ultramicro, Micro, and Trace Methods is a 22-chapter text that presents the methods for ultramicro, micro, and trace organic elemental analysis for commercial routine analysis. Each chapter of this book describes the important features of the methods evaluated, such as gas chromatography, wet absorption, spectrophotometry, diffusion, extraction, flame photometry, and dead-stop titration. These methods are classified into dynamic, multielement, and automatic determination methods. The advantages and limitations, as well as the speed, accuracy, reliability and economic aspects of these methods are examined. Considerable chapters are devoted to the analysis of various elements, including carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur, chlorine, bromine, iodine, fluorine, and phosphorus. Organic and analytical chemists, as well as chemistry teachers and students will find this work invaluable.
Introductory text covers basic structures of mathematical analysis (linear spaces, metric spaces, normed linear spaces, etc.), differential equations, orthogonal expansions, Fourier transforms, and more. Includes problems with hints and answers. Bibliography. 1974 edition.

Elementary Chemical Reactor Analysis focuses on the processes, reactions, methodologies, and approaches involved in chemical reactor analysis, including stoichiometry, adiabatic reactors, external mass transfer, and thermochemistry. The publication first takes a look at stoichiometry and thermochemistry and chemical equilibrium. Topics include heat of formation and reaction, measurement of quantity and its change by reaction, concentration changes with a single reaction, rate of generation of heat by reaction, and equilibrium of simultaneous and heterogeneous reactions. The manuscript then offers information on reaction rates and the progress of reaction in time. Discussions focus on systems of first order reactions, concurrent reactions of low order, general irreversible reaction, variation of reaction rate with extent and temperature, and heterogeneous reaction rate expressions. The book examines the interaction of chemical and physical rate processes, continuous flow stirred tank reactor, and adiabatic reactors. Concerns include multistage adiabatic reactors, adiabatic stirred tank, stability and control of the steady state, mixing in the reactor, effective reaction rate expressions, and external mass transfer. The publication is a dependable reference for readers interested in chemical reactor analysis.
Elementary Heat Transfer Analysis provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the nature of transient heat conduction. This book presents a thorough understanding of the thermal energy equation and its application to boundary layer flows and confined and unconfined turbulent flows. Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with an overview of the use of heat transfer coefficients in formulating the flux condition at phase interface. This text then explains the specification as well as application of flux boundary conditions. Other chapters consider a derivation of the transient heat conduction equation. This book discusses as well the convective energy transport based on the understanding and application of the thermal energy equation. The final chapter deals with the study of the processes of heat transfer during boiling and condensation. This book is a valuable resource for Junior or Senior engineering students who are in an introductory course in heat transfer.
Written for junior and senior undergraduates, this remarkably clear and accessible treatment covers set theory, the real number system, metric spaces, continuous functions, Riemann integration, multiple integrals, and more. 1968 edition.
