This version of Handbook of Analysis provides convenient access to reference material on the foundations of mathematical analysis. It is appropriate for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics, as well as practitioners. The CD-ROM is a unified presentation of the foundation of virtually all of mathematics, with the exception of geometry.

@from:Praise for the Book @qu:"At the very outset, I would like to say that I am very much impressed by what I have seen. I have read the preface and understand the author's purpose and his aims. I admire him for his courage in attempting such a daunting task, and I admire him even more for what appears to me to be a very successful completion of task . . . The author has show considerable good judgment on which proofs to to include . . . So, I am very excited over the prospect of this book being made available; it will be a very useful reference both for beginning graduate students, but also for their teachers." @source:--BARTLE, MICHIGAN @qu:"From the table of contents, it would appear to include just about everything one would want to know about the foundation of analysis. It is well-organized and the exposition in the sample chapters is quite good--clear, concise, and relatively easy to read. It is very good technically; the author knows what he is talking about. . . A mini-encyclopedia it certainly is. . . It would be a fine reference book. . . It is a fine book indeed, written with care by a knowledgeable and thoughtful author." @source:--CAIN, GEORGIA TECH.
