Infinitesimal Calculusby James M. Henle
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:Rigorous undergraduate treatment introduces calculus at the basic level, using infinitesimals and concentrating on theory rather than applications. Requires only a solid foundation in high school mathematics. Contents: 1. Introduction. 2. Language and Structure. 3. The Hyperreal Numbers. 4. The Hyperreal Line. 5. Continuous Functions. 6. Integral Calculus. 7. Differential Calculus. 8. The Fundamental Theorem. 9. Infinite Sequences and Series. 10. Infinite Polynomials. 11. The Topology of the Real Line. 12. Standard Calculus and Sequences of Functions. Appendixes. Subject Index. Name Index. Unabridged republication of the edition published by The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1979. Numerous figures. Book News Annotation:Originally published by MIT Press in 1979, this textbook provides a rigorous development of calculus using infinitesimals in the style of Abraham Robinson, concentrating on the theory behind both integral and differential calculus rather than their practical application.
