Publisher Synopsis

"Students who find Goffman's `Real Functions' (1953), Halmos's `Measure Theory' (1950), Hewitt and Stromberg's `Real and Abstract Analysis' (1965), Lang's (1969) or Royden's `Real Analysis' (1963), or Rudin's (1973) or Yosida's `Functional Analysis' (1965) to be too hard, or too easy, may find Sohrab's presentation just right. Problems and exercises abound; an appendix constructs the reals as the Cauchy (sequential) completion of the rationals; references are copious and judiciously chosen; and a detailed index brings up the rear. . . . Recommended." -CHOICE"This book is intended as a text for a one-year course for senior undergraduates or beginning graduate students, though it seems to the reviewer that it contains more than enough material for one year's study. . . . The quality of the exposition is good: strong and complete versions of theorems are preferred, and the material is organised so that all the proofs are of easily manageable length; motivational comments are helpful, and there are plenty of illustrative examples. The reader is strongly encouraged to learn by doing: exercises are sprinkled liberally throughout the text and each chapter ends with a set of problems, about 650 in all, some of which are of considerable intrinsic interest."-MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS"The book is a clear and well structured introduction to real analysis aimed at senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students. . . . The author managed to confine within a reasonable size book, all the basic concepts in real analysis and also some developed topics . . . The text contains carefully worked out examples which contribute motivating and helping to understand the theory. There is also an excellent selection of exercises within the text and problem sections at the end of each chapter. In fact this textbook can serve as a source of examples and exercises in real analysis. . . . This book can be highly recommended as a good reference on real analysis."-ZENTRALBLATT MATH Read more...
