The Riemann Integral
In this chapter we give an exposition of the definite integral of a real-valued function defined on a closed bounded interval. We assume familiarity with this concept from a previous study of calculus, but want to develop the theory in a more precise way than is typical for calculus courses, and also take a closer look at what kind of functions can be integrated. The integral to be defined and studied here is now widely known as the Riemann integral; in a later chapter we will study the more general Lebesgue integral.
