This textbook covers all the theoretical aspects of real variable analysis which undergraduates reading mathematics are likely to require during the first two or three years of their course. It is based on lecture courses which the author has given in the universities of Wales, Cambridge and London. The subject is presented rigorously and without padding. Definitions are stated explicitly and the whole development of the subject is logical and self-contained. Complex numbers are used but the complex variable calculus is not. 'Applied analysis', such as differential equations and Fourier series, is not dealt with. A large number of examples is included, with hints for the solution of many of them. These will be of particular value to students working on their own.

The three volumes of A Course in Mathematical Analysis provide a full and detailed account of all those elements of real and complex analysis that an undergraduate mathematics student can expect to encounter in their first two or three years of study. Containing hundreds of exercises, examples and applications, these books will become an invaluable resource for both students and instructors. This first volume focuses on the analysis of real-valued functions of a real variable. Besides developing the basic theory it describes many applications, including a chapter on Fourier series. It also includes a Prologue in which the author introduces the axioms of set theory and uses them to construct the real number system. Volume 2 goes on to consider metric and topological spaces and functions of several variables. Volume 3 covers complex analysis and the theory of measure and integration.

Excerpt from Elementary Mathematical Analysis This book aims to present a course suitable for students in the first year of our colleges, universities, and technical schools. It presupposes on the part of the student only the usual mini mum entrance requirements in elementary algebra and plane geometry? The book has been written with the hope of contributing something toward the solution of the problem of increasing the value and significance of our freshman courses. The recent widespread discussion of this problem has led to the general acceptance on the part of many teachers of certain principles governing the selection and arrangement of mate rial and the point of view from which it is to be presented. Among such principles, which have guided us in the prepara tion of this text, are the following. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Elementary Real Analysis is a core course in nearly all mathematics departments throughout the world. It enables students to develop a deep understanding of the key concepts of calculus from a mature perspective. Elements of Real Analysis is a student-friendly guide to learning all the important ideas of elementary real analysis, based on the author's many years of experience teaching the subject to typical undergraduate mathematics majors. It avoids the compact style of professional mathematics writing, in favor of a style that feels more comfortable to students encountering the subject for the first time. It presents topics in ways that are most easily understood, yet does not sacrifice rigor or coverage. In using this book, students discover that real analysis is completely deducible from the axioms of the real number system. They learn the powerful techniques of limits of sequences as the primary entry to the concepts of analysis, and see the ubiquitous role sequences play in virtually all later topics. They become comfortable with topological ideas, and see how these concepts help unify the subject. Students encounter many interesting examples, including "pathological" ones, that motivate the subject and help fix the concepts. They develop a unified understanding of limits, continuity, differentiability, Riemann integrability, and infinite series of numbers and functions.

Problems in Real Analysis: Advanced Calculus on the Real Axis features a comprehensive collection of challenging problems in mathematical analysis that aim to promote creative, non-standard techniques for solving problems. This self-contained text offers a host of new mathematical tools and strategies which develop a connection between analysis and other mathematical disciplines, such as physics and engineering. A broad view of mathematics is presented throughout; the text is excellent for the classroom or self-study. It is intended for undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, as well as for researchers engaged in the interplay between applied analysis, mathematical physics, and numerical analysis.

Elementary Real Analysis is a vital component of every Bachelors degree in Mathematics and Statistics. This book provides a somewhat detailed introduction to the subject. It may be used in an Introductory Real Analysis course as a main text or reference.

Was plane geometry your favourite math course in high school? Did you like proving theorems? Are you sick of memorising integrals? If so, real analysis could be your cup of tea. In contrast to calculus and elementary algebra, it involves neither formula manipulation nor applications to other fields of science. None. It is Pure Mathematics, and it is sure to appeal to the budding pure mathematician. In this new introduction to undergraduate real analysis the author takes a different approach from past studies of the subject, by stressing the importance of pictures in mathematics and hard problems. The exposition is informal and relaxed, with many helpful asides, examples and occasional comments from mathematicians like Dieudonne, Littlewood and Osserman. The author has taught the subject many times over the last 35 years at Berkeley and this book is based on the honours version of this course. The book contains an excellent selection of more than 500 exercises.

A Concise Approach to Mathematical Analysis introduces the undergraduate student to the more abstract concepts of advanced calculus. The main aim of the book is to smooth the transition from the problem-solving approach of standard calculus to the more rigorous approach of proof-writing and a deeper understanding of mathematical analysis. The first half of the textbook deals with the basic foundation of analysis on the real line; the second half introduces more abstract notions in mathematical analysis. Each topic begins with a brief introduction followed by detailed examples. A selection of exercises, ranging from the routine to the more challenging, then gives students the opportunity to practise writing proofs. The book is designed to be accessible to students with appropriate backgrounds from standard calculus courses but with limited or no previous experience in rigorous proofs. It is written primarily for advanced students of mathematics - in the 3rd or 4th year of their degree - who wish to specialise in pure and applied mathematics, but it will also prove useful to students of physics, engineering and computer science who also use advanced mathematical techniques.

Mathematics for Financial Analysis focuses on the application of mathematics in financial analysis, including applications of differentiation, logarithmic functions, and compounding. The publication first ponders on equations and graphs, vectors and matrices, and linear programming. Discussions focus on duality and minimization problems, systems of linear inequalities, linear programs, matrix inversion, properties of matrices and vectors, vector products, equations and graphs, higher dimensional spaces, distance in the plane, coordinate geometry, and inequalities and absolute value. The text then examines differential calculus, applications of differentiation, and antidifferentiation and definite integration. Topics include fundamental theorem of calculus, definite integral, profit optimization in a monopoly, revenue from taxation, curve sketching, concavity and points of inflection, and rules for differentiation. The book examines the applications of integration and differentiation and integration of exponential and logarithmic functions, including exponential and logarithmic functions, differentiation and integration of logarithmic functions, and continuous compounding. The publication is a valuable source of data for researchers interested in the application of mathematics in financial analysis.
