‘Books of this quality are rare enough to be hailed enthusiastically… it is so fresh in conception and so lucid in style that it will appeal to anyone who has a genuine interest in mathematics.’ The Times Literary Supplement
‘It is a pleasure to be able to welcome a book on analysis written by an author who has a sense of style.’ Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society
‘This is an excellent book … If I were teaching a course for honours students of the type described, this book would rank high as a possible choice of text.’ Canadian Mathematical Bulletin
The classic analysis textbook from Burkill and Burkill is now available in the Cambridge Mathematical Library. This straightforward course, based on the idea of a limit, is for students of mathematics and physics who have acquired a working knowledge of calculus and are ready for a more systematic approach. The treatment given here also brings in other limiting processes, such as the summation of infinite series and the expansion of trigonometric functions as power series. Particular attention is given to clarity of exposition and the logical development of the subject matter.
Book is based on the idea of a limit, intended for students of mathematics and physics who have acquired a working knowledge of the calculus and area ready for a more systematic treatment. Examples included. Softcover.
