Overview

Real Analysis, 2/e is a carefully worded narrative that presents the ideas of elementary real analysis while keeping the perspective of a student in mind. The order and flow of topics has been preserved, but the sections have been reorganized somewhat so that related ideas are grouped together better. A few additional topics have been added; most notably, functions of bounded variation, convex function, numerical methods of integration, and metric spaces. The biggest change is the number of exercises; there are now more than 1600 exercises in the text.
