A radical approach to real analysis, 2d ed.


A radical approach to real analysis, 2d ed.

Bressoud, David M.

Mathematical Assn. of America


323 pages




This volume serves as an introduction to real analysis for undergraduates. As opposed to traditional formats, Bressoud (mathematics, Macalester College) starts with infinite series and concentrates on topics that revolve around questions raised by Fourier's trigonometric series and the restructuring of calculus. The first part of the book follows the historical progression and then moves backwards. In this edition, approximately 60 new exercises have been added, many taken from Problems in Mathematical Analysis by Kaczor and Nowak, and the chapters on infinite summations, differentiability and continuity, and convergence of infinite series have been reorganized. A new section on geometric series has been added, and code for Mathematica and Maple has been moved to the website.
