The transition from studying calculus in schools to studying mathematical analysis at university is notoriously difficult. In this book, Dr Burn follows a route that proved successful with A Pathway to Number Theory and Groups: A Path to Geometry. He invites the student reader to tackle each of the key concepts in turn, progressing from experience (using computers for graph drawing where appropriate) through a structured sequence of several hundred problems to concepts, definitions and proofs of classical real analysis. The sequence of problems, which all have solutions supplied, draws students into constructing definitions and theorems for themselves. This natural development is informed by historical insight and complemented by historical discussion. The sequence also takes into account recent research which has shown how intuitive ideas about numbers, limits, functions and infinity may be at odds with the standard definitions. The novel approach to rigorous analysis offered here is designed to enable students to grow in confidence and skill and thus overcome the traditional difficulties. Teachers in sixth forms will find that questions at the beginning of every chapter provide ways of preparing those at school for university mathematics. Lecturers in universities will be challenged to rethink their conventions about the best way to introduce the central ideas of analysis to undergraduates.

Yet Another Introduction to Analysis
Lowest new price: $49.99
Lowest used price: $17.25
List price: $66.99
Author: Victor Bryant
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Mathematics education in schools has seen a revolution in recent years. Students everywhere expect the subject to be wellmotivated, relevant and practical. When such students reach higher education, the traditional development of analysis, often divorced from the calculus they learned at school, seems highly inappropriate. Shouldn't every step in a first course in analysis arise naturally from the student's experience of functions and calculus in school? And shouldn't such a course take every opportunity to endorse and extend the student's basic knowledge of functions? In Yet Another Introduction to Analysis, the author steers a simple and wellmotivated path through the central ideas of real analysis. Each concept is introduced only after its need has become clear and after it has already been used informally. Wherever appropriate, new ideas are related to common topics in math curricula and are used to extend the reader's understanding of those topics. In this book the readers are led carefully through every step in such a way that they will soon be predicting the next step for themselves. In this way students will not only understand analysis, but also enjoy it.

Complex Analysis: The Geometric Viewpoint (Carus Mathematical Monographs)
Lowest new price: $56.00
Lowest used price: $22.00
List price: $56.00
Author: Steven G. Krantz

In this second edition of a Carus Monograph Classic, Steven Krantz develops material on classical nonEuclidean geometry. He shows how it can be developed in a natural way from the invariant geometry of the complex disc. He also introduces the Bergman kernel and metric and provides profound applications, some of them never having appeared before in print. In general, the new edition represents a considerable polishing and rethinking of the original successful volume. This is the first and only book to describe the context, the background, the details, and the applications of Ahlfors's celebrated ideas about curvature, the Schwarz lemma, and applications in complex analysis. Beginning from scratch, and requiring only a minimal background in complex variable theory, this book takes the reader up to ideas that are currently active areas of study. Such areas include a) the Caratheodory and Kobayashi metrics, b) the Bergman kernel and metric, c) boundary continuation of conformal maps. There is also an introduction to the theory of several complex variables. Poincare's celebrated theorem about the biholomorphic inequivalence of the ball and polydisc is discussed and proved.

Mathematical Analysis: A Straightforward Approach, 2nd Edition
Lowest new price: $14.78
Lowest used price: $20.34
List price: $101.00
Author: K.G. Binmore
Brand: Cambridge University Press

For the second edition of this very successful text, Professor Binmore has written two chapters on analysis in vector spaces. The discussion extends to the notion of the derivative of a vector function as a matrix and the use of second derivatives in classifying stationary points. Some necessary concepts from linear algebra are included where appropriate. The first edition contained numerous worked examples and an ample collection of exercises for all of which solutions were provided at the end of the book. The second edition retains this feature but in addition offers a set of problems for which no solutions are given. Teachers may find this a helpful innovation.

The SeibergWitten Equations and Applications to the Topology of Smooth FourManifolds (Mathematical Notes, Vol. 44)
Lowest new price: $33.31
Lowest used price: $10.89
List price: $62.50
Author: John W. Morgan
Brand: John W Morgan

The recent introduction of the SeibergWitten invariants of smooth fourmanifolds has revolutionized the study of those manifolds. The invariants are gaugetheoretic in nature and are close cousins of the muchstudied SU(2)invariants defined over fifteen years ago by Donaldson. On a practical level, the new invariants have proved to be more powerful and have led to a vast generalization of earlier results. This book is an introduction to the SeibergWitten invariants.
The work begins with a review of the classical material on Spin c structures and their associated Dirac operators. Next comes a discussion of the SeibergWitten equations, which is set in the context of nonlinear elliptic operators on an appropriate infinite dimensional space of configurations. It is demonstrated that the space of solutions to these equations, called the SeibergWitten moduli space, is finite dimensional, and its dimension is then computed. In contrast to the SU(2)case, the SeibergWitten moduli spaces are shown to be compact. The SeibergWitten invariant is then essentially the homology class in the space of configurations represented by the SeibergWitten moduli space. The last chapter gives a flavor for the applications of these new invariants by computing the invariants for most Kahler surfaces and then deriving some basic toological consequences for these surfaces.

Lecture Notes on Topoi and Quasitopoi
Lowest new price: $65.00
Lowest used price: $117.71
List price: $65.00
Author: Oswald Wyler

Quasitopoi generalize topoi, a concept of major importance in the theory of Categoreis, and its applications to Logic and Computer Science. In recent years, quasitopoi have become increasingly important in the diverse areas of Mathematics such as General Topology and Fuzzy Set Theory. These Lecture Notes are the first comprehensive introduction to quasitopoi, and they can serve as a first introduction to topoi as well.

Fuzzy Topology (Advances in Fuzzy Systems: Application and Theory)
Lowest new price: $85.00
Lowest used price: $84.99

Author: Liu YingMing
Brand: Y M Liu M K Luo

Fuzzy set theory provides us with a framework which is wider than that of classical set theory. Various mathematical structures, whose features emphasize the effects of ordered structure, can be developed on the theory. Fuzzy topology is one such branch, combining ordered structure with topological structure. This branch of mathematics, emerged from the background  processing fuzziness, and locale theory, proposed from the angle of pure mathematics by the great French mathematician Ehresmann, comprise the two most active aspects of topology on lattice, which affect each other. This book is the first monograph to systematically reflect the uptodate state of fuzzy topology. It emphasizes the socalled "pointed approach" and the effects of stratification structure appearing in fuzzy sets.The monograph can serve as a reference book for mathematicians, researchers, and graduate students working in this branch of mathematics. After an appropriate rearrangements of the chapters and sections, it can also be used as a text for undergraduates.
