Real Variables: With Basic Metric Space Topology
by Robert B. Ash
Publisher: Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineering 2007
Number of pages: 213
This is a text for a first course in real variables for students of engineering, physics, and economics, who need to know real analysis in order to cope with the professional literature in their fields. The book tends to avoid standard mathematical writing, with its emphasis on formalism, but a certain amount of abstraction is unavoidable for a coherent presentation.
