The Real Numbers: An Introduction to Set Theory and Analysis (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

While so much texts on actual research are content material to imagine the true numbers, or to regard them merely in brief, this article makes a major research of the true quantity method and the problems it brings to gentle. research wishes the true numbers to version the road, and to help the options of continuity and degree. yet those likely basic specifications bring about deep problems with set theory―uncountability, the axiom of selection, and massive cardinals. in truth, nearly the entire innovations of endless set conception are wanted for a formal figuring out of the true numbers, and for that reason of research itself.

By concentrating on the set-theoretic features of study, this article makes the easiest of 2 worlds: it combines a down-to-earth advent to set idea with an exposition of the essence of analysis―the learn of limitless methods at the genuine numbers. it truly is meant for senior undergraduates, however it may also be appealing to graduate scholars mathematicians who, formerly, were content material to "assume" the true numbers. Its must haves are calculus and easy mathematics.

Mathematical historical past is woven into the textual content, explaining how the recommendations of genuine quantity and infinity constructed to fulfill the wishes of research from precedent days to the past due 20th century. This wealthy presentation of historical past, besides a heritage of proofs, examples, workouts, and explanatory comments, may help inspire the reader. the fabric lined contains vintage subject matters from either set thought and genuine research classes, reminiscent of countable and uncountable sets,  countable ordinals, the continuum challenge, the Cantor–Schröder–Bernstein theorem, non-stop features, uniform convergence, Zorn's lemma, Borel units, Baire services, Lebesgue degree, and Riemann integrable functions.
