Description

Real Analysis and Infinity presents the essential topics for a first course in real analysis with an emphasis on the role of infinity in all of the fundamental concepts.

  • The proofs of the vast majority of theorems are presented whilst pedagogical considerations are given priority
  • Preliminary discussion of each major topic via examples and diagrams helps ease the reader into the appropriate context for the topic
  • Examples follow most major results to improve comprehension and chapter-end exercises help with the refinement of proof and calculation skills
