Introductory Analysis

The Theory of Calculus


  • John Fridy, Kent State University, Ohio, U.S.A.

Introductory Analysis, Second Edition, is intended for the standard course on calculus limit theories that is taken after a problem solving first course in calculus (most often by junior/senior mathematics majors). Topics studied include sequences, function limits, derivatives, integrals, series, metric spaces, and calculus in n-dimensional Euclidean space

Researchers, professionals, the general public, and librarians who want to expand or enhance their knowledge of calculus limit theories.
