A favor tiene el enfoque matemático que no desestima las aplicaciones ingenieriles, pero prioriza la teoría formal pura. A few topics, like manipulations with power series, have been discussed more thoroughly in the text, and there are also more problems on these topics, while other topics, like Newton’s method and the trapezoid rule and Simpson’s rule, have been developed in the problems. Ideal for honours students and mathematics majors seeking an alternative to doorstop textbooks and more formidable introductions to real analysis. As we have just hinted, it is convenient to regard subtraction as an operation derived from addition: we consider a — b to be an abbreviation for a + (—b).

Apart from the gratuitous waste of page real estate there is also some confusing notation as well as an overall feel that is a lot more academic than practical. It also includes challenging exercises and proofs to help students develop critical thinking skills. About half of this course was devoted to algebra and topology, while the other half covered calculus, with the preliminary edition as the text. The statement of this property clearly renders a separate concept of the sum of three numbers superfluous; we simply agree that a + b + c denotes the number a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c.It is commonly used in college-level calculus courses and is known for its clear and rigorous approach to the subject. Richard Serkey helped collect the material which provides historical sidelights in the problems, and Richard Weiss supplied the answers appearing in the back of the book.

Frederick Gordon pointed out several serious mistakes in the original problems, and supplied some non-trivial corrections, as well as the neat proof of Theorem 12-2, which took two Lemmas and two pages in the first edition. I'm not sure if I'm making the topic in the right place but I'd like to have the fourth edition of Calculus (Spivak).

Naturally, such elaborate solutions are of interest only until you become convinced that they can always be supplied. The basic properties of multiplication are fortunately so similar to those for ad­ dition that little comment will be needed; both the meaning and the consequences should be clear. This edition differs from the third mainly in the inclusion of additional problems, as well as a complete update of the Suggested Reading, together with some changes of exposition, mainly in Chapters 5 and 20. Davies told me the trick for Problem 11-66, which previously was proved only in Problem 20-8 [21-8 in the third edition], and Marina Ratner suggested several interesting problems, especially ones on uniform continuity and infinite series. Nevertheless, it is impossible to derive this fact from properties P1-P4; it is instructive to examine the elementary algebra care­ fully and determine which step(s) cannot be justified by P1-P4.

Like putting an everyday object under a microscope: very interesting, but now there are many more interesting objects I want to put under a microscope. All that is necessary is a solid understanding of high school pre-calculus and mathematical curiousity. It is almost obligatory in such circumstances to report that the preliminary version was a gratifying success. I do understand its novelty, and I especially sense its charm from the perspective of a self-learner. The answer section contains solutions to about half the examples from an assortment of problems that should provided a good test of technical competence.

I have had time to make only a few changes to the Suggested Reading, which after all these years probably requires a complete revision; this will have to wait until the next edition, which I hope to make in a more timely fashion. It is a good book for interesting problems, however this treatment will not make you any more successful in a Calculus course, perhaps the opposite since you are likely to be in a course that treats Calculus in a different way.It is more convenient, however, to consider addition of pairs of numbers only, and to define other sums in terms of sums of this type. Although small changes have been made to some material, especially in Chap­ ters 5 and 20, this edition differs mainly in the introduction of additional problems, a complete update of the Suggested Reading, and the correction of numerous er­ rors. It also includes challenging exercises and proofs to help students develop a deeper understanding of the material. Since the foundations of analysis provided the arena in which modern modes of math­ ematical thinking developed, calculus ought to be the place in which to expect, rather than avoid, the strengthening of insight with logic.

The inadequacies which preliminary editions always involve were gallantly en­ dured by a rugged group of freshmen in the honors mathematics course at Brandeis University during the academic year 1965-1966.who were always eager to increase the appeal of the book, while recognizing the audience for which it was intended.
