This text is a single variable real analysis text, designed for the one-year course at the junior, senior, or beginning graduate level. It provides a rigorous and comprehensive treatment of the theoretical concepts of analysis. The book contains most of the topics covered in a text of this nature, but it also includes many topics not normally encountered in comparable texts. These include the Riemann-Stieltjes integral, the Lebesgue integral, Fourier series, the Weiestrass approximation theorem, and an introduction to normal linear spaces.
The Real Number System; Sequence Of Real Numbers; Structure Of Point Sets; Limits And Continuity; Differentiation; The Riemann And Riemann-Stieltjes Integral; Series of Real Numbers; Sequences And Series Of Functions; Orthogonal Functions And Fourier Series; Lebesgue Measure And Integration; Logic and Proofs; Propositions and Connectives
For all readers interested in real analysis.
This textbook is designed for a one-year course in real analysis at the junior or senior level. An understanding of real analysis is necessary for the study of advanced topics in mathematics and the physical sciences, and is helpful to advanced students of engineering, economics, and the social sciences. Stoll, who teaches at the U. of South Carolina, presents examples and counterexamples to illustrate topics such as the structure of point sets, limits and continuity, differentiation, and orthogonal functions and Fourier series. The second edition includes a self-contained proof of Lebesgue's theorem and a new appendix on logic and proofs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
