This text provides the fundamental concepts and techniques of real analysis for students in all of these areas. It helps one develop the ability to think deductively, analyse mathematical situations and extend ideas to a new context. Like the first three editions, this edition maintains the same spirit and user-friendly approach with addition examples and expansion on Logical Operations and Set Theory. There is also content revision in the following areas: introducing point-set topology before discussing continuity, including a more thorough discussion of limsup and limimf, covering series directly following sequences, adding coverage of Lebesgue Integral and the construction of the reals, and drawing student attention to possible applications wherever possible.
A textbook for a course in real analysis for students of econometrics, management science, the physical sciences, engineering, and computer science. Explains the fundamental concepts and techniques for functions of one variable. First published in 1982. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
