Description

Working Analysis 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.

Review Text

"This is a solid, well-written advanced calculus book that deserves to be on the shelves of mathematics department offices when faculty are selecting course resources." -- J. Feroe, Vassar College, in CHOICE , JUNE 2005"In my opinion the book by Cooper is a viable competitor to Strichartz...To summarize, this textbook is based on a very healthy philosophy that it is easier to learn mathematical analysis when it is intertwined with meaningful applications. The book is fun to read and, I am sure, will be fun to learn from. -- Victor Roytburd, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in SIAM REVIEW
