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.
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.
DIVExcellent undergraduate-level text offers coverage of real numbers, sets, metric spaces, limits, continuous functions, much more. Each chapter contains a problem set with hints and answers. 1973 edition. /div

Elementary Real Analysis is written in a rigorous, yet reader friendly style with motivational and historical material that emphasizes the “big picture” and makes proofs seem natural rather than mysterious. Introduces key concepts such as point set theory, uniform continuity of functions and uniform convergence of sequences of functions. Covers metric spaces. Ideal for readers interested in mathematics, particularly in advanced calculus and real 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.
An account of elementary real analysis positioned between a popular mathematics book and a first year college or university text. This book doesn't assume knowledge of calculus and, instead, the emphasis is on the application of analysis to number theory.
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.
