Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


This text is a single variable real analysis text, designed for the one-year course at the junior, senior, or beginning graduate level. It provides a rigorous and comprehensive treatment of the theoretical concepts of analysis. The book contains most of the topics covered in a text of this nature, but it also includes many topics not normally encountered in comparable texts. These include the Riemann-Stieltjes integral, the Lebesgue integral, Fourier series, the Weiestrass approximation theorem, and an introduction to normal linear spaces.


KEY TOPICS: The Real Number System; Sequence Of Real Numbers; Structure Of Point Sets; Limits And Continuity; Differentiation; The Riemann And Riemann-Stieltjes Integral; Series of Real Numbers; Sequences And Series Of Functions; Orthogonal Functions And Fourier Series; Lebesgue Measure And Integration; Logic and Proofs; Propositions and Connectives


MARKET: For all readers interested in real analysis.
