Working Analysis

Jeffery Cooper

ISBN 0121876047
Pages 688

The text is for a two semester course in advanced calculus. It develops the basic ideas of calculus rigorously but with an eye to showing how mathematics connects with other areas of science and engineering. In particular, effective numerical computation is developed as an important aspect of mathematical analysis.
