Wade, William R.


This text provides a bridge from "sophomore" calculus to graduate courses that use analytic ideas, e.g., real and complex analysis, partial and ordinary differential equations, numerical analysis, fluid mechanics, and differential geometry. For a two-semester course, the first semester should end with Chapter 8. For a three-quarter course, the second quarter should begin in Chapter 6 and end somewhere in the middle of Chapter 11. Our presentation is divided into two parts. The first half, Chapters 1 through 7 together with Appendices A and B, gradually introduces the central ideas of analysis in a one-dimensional setting. The second half, Chapters 8 through 15 together with Appendices C through F, covers multidimensional theory. More specifically, Chapter 1 introduces the real number system as a complete, ordered field, Chapters 2 through 5 cover calculus on the real line; and Chapters 6 and 7 discuss infinite series, including uniform and absolute convergence. The first two sections of Chapter 8 give a short introduction to the algebraic, structure ofR n , including the connection between linear functions and matrices. At that point instructors have two options. They can continue covering Chapters 8 and 9 to explore topology and convergence in the concrete Euclidean space setting, or they can cover these same concepts in the abstract metric space setting (Chapter 10). Since either of these options provides the necessary foundation for the rest of the book, instructors are free to choose the approach that they feel best suits their aims. With this background material out of the way, Chapters 11 through 13 develop the, machinery and theory of vector calculus. Chapter 14 gives a short introduction to Fourier series, including summability and convergence bf Fourier series, growth of Fourier coefficients, and uniqueness of trigonometric series. Chapter 15 gives a short introduction to differentiable manifolds which culminates in a proof of Stokes's Theorem on differentiable manifolds. Separating the one-dimensional from then-dimensional material is not the most efficient way to present the material, but it does have two advantages. The more abstract, geometric concepts can be postponed until students have been given a thorough introduction to analysis on the real line. Students have two chances to master some of the deeper ideas of analysis (e.g., convergence of sequences, limits of functions, and uniform continuity). We have made this text flexible in another way by including core material and enrichment material. The core material, occupying fewer than 384 pages, can be covered easily in a one-year course. The enrichment material is included for two reasons: Curious students can use it to delve deeper into the core material or as a jumping off place to pursue more general topics, and instructors can use it to supplement their course or to add variety from year to year. Enrichment material appears in enrichment sections, marked with a superscripte, or in core sections, where it is marked with an asterisk. Exercises that use enrichment material are also marked with an asterisk, and the material needed to solve them is cited in the Answers and Hints section. To make course planning easier, each enrichment section begins with a statement which indicates whether that section uses material from any other enrichment section. Since no core material depends on enrichment material, any of the latter can be skipped without loss in the integrity of the course. Most enrichment sections (5.5, 5.6, 6.5, 6.6, 7.5, 9.4, 11.6, 12.6, 14.1, 15.1) are independent and can be covered in any order after the core material that precedes them has been dealt with. Sections 9.5, 12.5, and 15.2 require 9.4, Section 15.3 requires 12.5, and Section 14.3 requires 5.5 only to establish Lemma 14.25. This result can easily be proved for continuously differentiable functions, thWade, William R. is the author of 'Introduction to Analysis', published 2003 under ISBN 9780131453333 and ISBN 0131453335.
