This text presents ideas of elementary real analysis, with chapters on real numbers, sequences, limits and continuity, differentiation, integration, infinite series, sequences and series of functions, and point-set topology. Appendices review essential ideas of mathematical logic, sets and functions, and mathematical induction. Students are required to confront formal proofs. Some background in calculus or linear or abstract algebra is assumed. This second edition adds material on functions of bounded variation, convex functions, numerical methods of integration, and metric spaces. There are 1,600 exercises in this edition, an addition of some 120 pages. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
