The Foundations of Analysis

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 48

Description:
This is a detailed and self-contained introduction to the real number system from a categorical perspective. We begin with the categorical definition of the natural numbers, review the Eudoxus theory of ratios as presented in Book V of Euclid, and then use these classical results to define the positive real numbers categorically.

My intent is to introduce the Lebesgue integral in a quick, and hopefully painless, way and then go on to investigate the standard convergence theorems and a brief introduction to the Hilbert space of L2 functions on the interval.
