Opis: Numbers and Functions - R. P. Burn

The transition from studying calculus in schools to studying mathematical analysis at university is notoriously difficult. In this third edition of Numbers and Functions, Professor Burn invites the student reader to tackle each of the key concepts in turn, progressing from experience through a structured sequence of more than 800 problems to concepts, definitions and proofs of classical real analysis. The sequence of problems, of which most are supplied with brief answers, draws students into constructing definitions and theorems for themselves. This natural development is informed and complemented by historical insight. Carefully corrected and updated throughout, this new edition also includes extra questions on integration and an introduction to convergence. The novel approach to rigorous analysis offered here is designed to enable students to grow in confidence and skill and thus overcome the traditional difficulties. 'This third edition of Numbers and Functions continues the author's long-term commitment to support every reader in making sense of mathematics by responding to a succession of well-chosen questions that encourage personal reflection and discussion with others. Groups of questions are followed by a summary to build the bigger picture. Every chapter includes details of the historical development and ends with a full list of solutions. The author is aware of the difficulties that students encounter with the complexity of the limit concept and begins with a pragmatic approach to null sequences. This broadens into a full study of limits of sequences, completeness, and a full range of tests for convergence of infinite series ... This latest edition maintains the original chapters of the original, while benefiting from detailed improvements that have arisen from the experience of many readers. Thoroughly recommended.'
