More About This Textbook


This book reflects the progress made in the forty years since the appearance of Abraham Robinson’s revolutionary book Nonstandard Analysis in the foundations of mathematics and logic, number theory, statistics and probability, in ordinary, partial and shastic differential equations and in education. The contributions are clear and essentially self-contained.
