### Synopses & Reviews

This book provides a self-contained and rigorous introduction to calculus of functions of one variable. The presentation and sequencing of topics emphasizes the structural development of calculus. At the same time, due importance is given to computational techniques and applications. The authors have strived to make a distinction between the intrinsic definition of a geometric notion and its analytic characterization. Throughout the book, the authors highlight the fact that calculus provides a firm foundation to several concepts and results that are generally encountered in high school and accepted on faith. For example, one can find here a proof of the classical result that the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is the same for all circles. Also, this book helps students get a clear understanding of the concept of an angle and the definitions of the logarithmic, exponential and trigonometric functions together with a proof of the fact that these are not algebraic functions. A number of topics that may have been inadequately covered in calculus courses and glossed over in real analysis courses are treated here in considerable detail. As such, this book provides a unified exposition of calculus and real analysis. The only prerequisites for reading this book are topics that are normally covered in high school; however, the reader is expected to possess some mathematical maturity and an ability to understand and appreciate proofs. This book can be used as a textbook for a serious undergraduate course in calculus, while parts of the book can be used for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in real analysis. Each chapter contains several examples and a large selection of exercises, as well as "Notes and Comments" describing salient features of the exposition, related developments and references to relevant literature.

#### Review

From the reviews: "The book is a self-contained and rigorous introduction to calculus of one variable. It covers the programme of the first-year in mathematical analysis. The main goal of the book is a clear and successful presentation of the basic ideas of analysis. The reader can see an attention of the authors to help students in understanding and further developing of the basic notions of the subject. ... are illustrated by a number of interesting examples and remarks. In some sense it is a book for self-education." (Sergi V. Rogosin, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1100 (2), 2007)

#### Synopsis

Calculus is one of the triumphs of the human mind. It emerged from inv- tigations into such basic questions as ?nding areas, lengths and volumes. In the third century B. C., Archimedes determined the area under the arc of a parabola. In the early seventeenth century, Fermat and Descartes studied the problem of ?nding tangents to curves. But the subject really came to life in the hands of Newton and Leibniz in the late seventeenth century. In part- ular, they showed that the geometric problems of ?nding the areas of planar regions and of ?nding the tangents to plane curves are intimately related to one another. In subsequent decades, the subject developed further through the work of several mathematicians, most notably Euler, Cauchy, Riemann, and Weierstrass. Today, calculus occupies a centralplacein mathematics and is an essential component of undergraduate education. It has an immense number of app- cations both within and outside mathematics. Judged by the sheer variety of the concepts and results it has generated, calculus can be rightly viewed as a fountainhead of ideas and disciplines in mathematics. Real analysis, often called mathematical analysis or simply analysis, may be regarded as a formidable counterpart of calculus. It is a subject where one revisits notionsencountered in calculus, but with greaterrigor and sometimes with greater generality. Nonetheless, the basic objects of study remain the same, namely, real-valued functions of one or several real variables. This book attempts to give a self-contained and rigorous introduction to calculusoffunctionsofonevariable.
