A primer of real functions by Ralph P Boas ( Book )
68 editions published between 1960 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 2,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a revised, updated, and augmented edition of a classic Carus monograph with a new chapter on integration and its applications. Earlier editions covered sets, metric spaces, continuous functions, and differentiable functions. To that, this edition adds sections on measurable sets and functions and the Lebesgue and Stieltjes integrals. The book retains the informal chatty style of the previous editions. It presents a variety of interesting topics, many of which are not commonly encountered in undergraduate textbooks, such as the existence of continuous everywhere-oscillating functions; two functions having equal derivatives, yet not differing by a constant; application of Stieltjes integration to the speed of convergence of infinite series. For readers with a background in calculus, the book is suitable either for self-study or for supplemental reading in a course on advanced calculus or real analysis. Students of mathematics will find here the sense of wonder that was associated with the subject in its early days

Invitation to complex analysis by Ralph P Boas ( Book )
11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ideal for a first course in complex analysis, this book can be used either as a classroom text or for independent study. Written at a level accessible to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, the book is suitable for readers acquainted with advanced calculus or introductory real analysis. The treatment goes beyond the standard material of power series, Cauchy's theorem, residues, conformal mapping, and harmonic functions by including accessible discussions of intriguing topics that are uncommon in a book at this level. The flexibility afforded by the supplementary topics and applications makes the book adaptable either to a short, one-term course or to a comprehensive, full-year course. Detailed solutions of the exercises both serve as models for students and facilitate independent study. Supplementary exercises, not solved in the book, provide an additional teaching tool

Invitation to complex analysis by Ralph P Boas ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book, whose first edition was written by Ralph P. Boas and published by Random House in 1987, reveals both the power of complex analysis as a tool for applications and the intrinsic beauty of the subject as a fundamental part of pure mathematics. This revised edition by the author's son, Harold P. Boas, himself an award-winning mathematical expositor, is an ideal choice for a first course in complex analysis, as a classroom text, and for independent study. Distilling the subject into a lucid, engaging, rigorous account of the subject, the authors go beyond the standard material of power series, Cauchy's theorem, residues, conformal mapping, and harmonic functions. Included are accessible discussions of less well-known but intriguing topics ranging from Landau's notation and overconvergent series to the Phragmen-Lindelof theorems. Nearly 70 exercises, with detailed solutions, serve as models for students, and supplementary exercises provide even more material for the classroom."--Publisher's description
A manual for translators of mathematical Russian by Sydney H Gould ( Book )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Probability by Alʹbert Nikolaevich Shiri︠a︡ev ( Book )
6 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This new edition contains substantial revisions and updated references. The reader will find a deeper study of topics such as the distance between probability measures, metrization of weak convergence, and contiguity of probability measures. Proofs for a number of some important results which were merely stated in the first edition have been added. The author has included new material on the probability of large deviations, on the central limit theorem for sums of dependent random variables, and on a discrete version of Ito's formula
Indeterminate forms revisited by Ralph P Boas ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ralph P. Boas sketches some of the history of the famous theorem of l'Hopital of elementary calculus, gives some advantages of various proofs, and discusses the fact that the role of integration can be played by a general linear operator that is the inverse of a differential operator, such as a Laplace transform
