Introduction to Real Analysisby Michael J. Schramm
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This text forms a bridge between courses in calculus and real analysis. It focuses on the construction of mathematical proofs as well as their final content. Suitable for upperlevel undergraduates and graduate students of real analysis, it also provides a vital reference book for advanced courses in mathematics.The fourpart treatment begins with an introduction to basic logical structures and techniques of proof, including discussions of the cardinality concept and the algebraic and order structures of the real and rational number systems. Part Two presents indepth examinations of the completeness of the real number system and its topological structure. Part Three reviews and extends the previous explorations of the real number system, and the final part features a selection of topics in real function theory. Numerous and varied exercises range from articulating the steps omitted from examples and observing mechanical results at work to the completion of partial proofs within the text.
