Mathematical analysis and proof

£18.00

Product description

This fundamental and straightforward text addresses a weakness observed among present-day students, namely a lack of familiarity with formal proof. Beginning with the idea of mathematical proof and the need for it, associated technical and logical skills are developed with care and then brought to bear on the core material of analysis in such a lucid presentation that the development reads naturally and in a straightforward progression. Retaining the core text, the second edition has additional worked examples which users have indicated a need for, in addition to more emphasis on how analysis can be used to tell the accuracy of the approximations to the quantities of interest which arise in analytical limits.Addresses a lack of familiarity with formal proof, a weakness observed among present-day mathematics studentsExamines the idea of mathematical proof, the need for it and the technical and logical skills required.

Slight discolouration to top of pages. Crease to right hand corner of cover. Otherwise, pages are intact, with no annotation or highlighting.
