Mathematical Analysis: A Concise Introductionby Bernd S. Schroder
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:A selfcontained introduction to the fundamentals of mathematical analysis
Mathematical Analysis: A Concise Introduction presents the foundations of analysis and illustrates its role in mathematics. By focusing on the essentials, reinforcing learning through exercises, and featuring a unique "learn by doing" approach, the book develops the reader's proof writing skills and establishes fundamental comprehension of analysis that is essential for further exploration of pure and applied mathematics. This book is directly applicable to areas such as differential equations, probability theory, numerical analysis, differential geometry, and functional analysis. Mathematical Analysis is composed of three parts: Part One presents the analysis of functions of one variable, including sequences, continuity, differentiation, Riemann integration, series, and the Lebesgue integral. A detailed explanation of proof writing is provided with specific attention devoted to standard proof techniques. To facilitate an efficient transition to more abstract settings, the results for single variable functions are proved using methods that translate to metric spaces. Part Two explores the more abstract counterparts of the concepts outlined earlier in the text. The reader is introduced to the fundamental spaces of analysis, including Lp spaces, and the book successfully details how appropriate definitions of integration, continuity, and differentiation lead to a powerful and widely applicable foundation for further study of applied mathematics. The interrelation between measure theory, topology, and differentiation is then examined in the proof of the Multidimensional Substitution Formula. Further areas of coverage in this section include manifolds, Stokes' Theorem, Hilbert spaces, the convergence of Fourier series, and Riesz' Representation Theorem. Part Three provides an overview of the motivations for analysis as well as its applications in various subjects. A special focus on ordinary and partial differential equations presents some theoretical and practical challenges that exist in these areas. Topical coverage includes NavierStokes equations and the finite element method. Mathematical Analysis: A Concise Introduction includes an extensive index and over 900 exercises ranging in level of difficulty, from conceptual questions and adaptations of proofs to proofs with and without hints. These opportunities for reinforcement, along with the overall concise and wellorganized treatment of analysis, make this book essential for readers in upperundergraduate or beginning graduate mathematics courses who would like to build a solid foundation in analysis for further work in all analysisbased branches of mathematics. Book News Annotation:Designed for those who intend to continue in studying and using analysis in mathematics, this foundation text focuses on the essentials and uses exercises as a primary means of learning. Schröder (mathematics, Louisiana Tech U.) takes a handson approach without sacrificing essential theory, working from simple concepts and practice to the complex. Therefore he starts with the analysis of functions of a single real variable, describing real numbers, sequences of real numbers, continuous functions, differentiable functions, the Riemann integral, series of real numbers, the Lebesque integral, sequences of functions and numerical methods. He then describes analysis in abstract spaces, including integration on measure spaces, abstract venues for analysis, the topology of metric spaces, differentiation in normed spaces, measures and their relations to topology and differentiation, differential geometry and Hilbert spaces, closing with applied analysis in such areas as physics, ordinary differential equations and the finite element methods. He includes appendices on logic, set theory, natural numbers, integers and rational numbers. Annotation Â©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
