This is a very good textbook presenting a modern course in analysis both at the advanced undergraduate and at the beginning graduate level. It contains 14 chapters, a bibliography, and an index. At the end of each chapter interesting exercises and historical notes are enclosed.\par From the cover: ``The book begins with a brief discussion of sets and mappings, describes the real number field, and proceeds to a treatment of realvalued functions of a real variable. Separate chapters are devoted to the ideas of convergent sequences and series, continuous functions, differentiation, and the Riemann integral (of a realvalued function defined on a compact interval). The middle chapters cover general topology and a miscellany of applications: the Weierstrass and StoneWeierstrass approximation theorems, the existence of geodesics in compact metric spaces, elements of Fourier analysis, and the Weyl equidistribution theorem. Next comes a discussion of differentiation of vectorvalued functions of several real variables, followed by a brief treatment of measure and integration (in a general setting, but with emphasis on Lebesgue theory in Euclidean spaces). The final part of the book deals with manifolds, differential forms, and Stokes' theorem [in the spirit of M. Spivak's: ``Calculus on manifolds'' (1965; Zbl 141.05403)] which is applied to prove Brouwer's fixed point theorem and to derive the basic properties of harmonic functions, such as the Dirichlet principle''.

Mathematical Analysis
An Introduction
"Everything needed is clearly defined and formulated, and there is a reasonable number of examplesâ€¦. Anyone teaching a year course at this level to should seriously consider this carefully written book. In the reviewer's opinion, it would be a real pleasure to use this text with such a class."â€”MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
