Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088385029X, Hardcover)

This is a revised, updated, and augmented edition of a classic Carus monograph with a new chapter on integration and its applications. Earlier editions covered sets, metric spaces, continuous functions, and differentiable functions. To that, this edition adds sections on measurable sets and functions and the Lebesgue and Stieltjes integrals. The book retains the informal chatty style of the previous editions. It presents a variety of interesting topics, many of which are not commonly encountered in undergraduate textbooks, such as the existence of continuous everywhere-oscillating functions; two functions having equal derivatives, yet not differing by a constant; application of Stieltjes integration to the speed of convergence of infinite series. For readers with a background in calculus, the book is suitable either for self-study or for supplemental reading in a course on advanced calculus or real analysis. Students of mathematics will find here the sense of wonder that was associated with the subject in its early days.
