Description

The Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis, Volume 1 is a textbook that provides a systematic and rigorous treatment of the fundamentals of mathematical analysis. Emphasis is placed on the concept of limit which plays a principal role in mathematical analysis. Examples of the application of mathematical analysis to geometry, mechanics, physics, and engineering are given. This volume is comprised of 14 chapters and begins with a discussion on real numbers, their properties and applications, and arithmetical operations over real numbers. The reader is then introduced to the concept of function, important classes of functions, and functions of one variable; the theory of limits and the limit of a function, monotonic functions, and the principle of convergence; and continuous functions of one variable. A systematic account of the differential and integral calculus is then presented, paying particular attention to differentiation of functions of one variable; investigation of the behavior of functions by means of derivatives; functions of several variables; and differentiation of functions of several variables. The remaining chapters focus on the concept of a primitive function (and of an indefinite integral); definite integral; geometric applications of integral and differential calculus.
This book is intended for first- and second-year mathematics students.
