## Foundations of Mathematical AnalysisThis classroom-tested volume offers a definitive look at modern analysis, with views of applications to statistics, numerical analysis, Fourier series, differential equations, mathematical analysis, and functional analysis. A self-contained text, it presents the necessary background on the limit concept. (The first seven chapters could constitute a one-semester course on introduction to limits.) Subsequent chapters discuss differential calculus of the real line, the Riemann-Stieltjes integral, sequences and series of functions, transcendental functions, inner product spaces and Fourier series, normed linear spaces and the Riesz representation theorem, and the Lebesgue integral. More than 750 exercises help reinforce the material. 1981 edition. 34 figures. |

User Review - Stephen - GoodreadsThis has been such a critical book in my mathematical development. I find myself often referring back to this book as a source to fill in holes, and referring it to colleagues as a good book to do so Read full review
