Product Description


"Let me begin by saying that I really like this book, and I do not say that of very many books. What impresses me most is the level of motivation and explanation given for the basic logic, the construction of proofs, and the ways of thinking about proofs that this book provides in its first few sections. It felt that the author was talking to the reader the way I would like to talk to students. There was an air of familiarity there. All kinds of useful remarks were made, the type I would like to make in my lectures." — Aimo Hinkkanen, University of Illinois at Urbana

"The writing style is suitable for our students. It is clear, logical, and concise. The examples are very helpful and well-developed. The topics are thoroughly covered and at the appropriate level for our students. The material is technically accurate, and the pedagogical material is effectively presented." — John Konvalina, University of Nebraska at Omaha

From the Publisher

A solid presentation of the analysis of functions of a real variable -- with special attention on reading and writing proofs. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a good first text Sept. 4 2002
I bought this book because I have been looking for a Introductory analysis text that isn't too advanced, but yet doesn't gloss over the essential stuff, and I found it in Lay's book. For the self-studier, this book is excellent! I have several books on analysis: Shilov, Kolomogorov, Rosenlicht, Ross,etc... For the beginner, this book is superior to all of them. A plethora of examples. Also, a good range of problems:from straight forward problems requiring only the use of a definition to more advanced problems requiring a little thought. If you already have had some Analysis, then this book is probably not for you. But, if you are a student who wants to learn Analysis on your own, then this book would be hard to beat. After this book, one should be able to tackle "Papa Rudin". For according to Rudin, all that is needed to study his "Real and Complex Analysis" tome, is the first seven chapters of his "Principles of Mathematical Analysis". This book covers all that Rudin covers with the exception of Riemann-Stieltjes integration. On the whole, this is a great start! If proof-based math is new to you, then you will appreciate the first chapter on proofs. Would have given five stars, but I would have liked to seen Riemann-Stieltjes integration. That's really only nit picking, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Intro to Real Analysis Sept. 5 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Real Analysis is arguably the toughest concept for new math undergrads. The book is well written and easy to understand. The price is a bit steep, but it will look great on your shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Deal Feb. 6 2010
The book came really fast to me, and the book was in new condition and exactly like the one sold in my university bookstore. Good Deal, thanks.
