For undergraduate courses in Advanced Calculus and Real Analysis, as well as for beginning graduate students in mathematics. For a one or two semester sequence.

Elementary Real Analysis is written in a reader friendly style with motivational and historical material that emphasizes the ''big picture'' and makes proofs seem natural rather than mysterious. It introduces key concepts such as point set theory, uniform continuity of functions and uniform convergence of sequences of functions. It is designed to prepare students for graduate work in mathematical analysis.
