Description

These new chapters introduce the ideas of limits of sequences and continuous functions as well as several interesting applications, such as the use of the intermediate value theorem to prove the existence of n th roots.

In addition to preparing students to go on in mathematics, it is also a wonderful choice for a student who will not necessarily go on in mathematics but wants a gentle but fascinating introduction into the culture of mathematics.

Liebeck’s book stands out from the crowd of similar books by being short (as the title says, it is concise) and by trying to expose students to mathematical ideas beyond the basics of sets and logic. Ciò detto, non è che sia da buttare: è scritto in maniera molto scorrevole e quindi permette una lettura agevole.

Divided into 22 short chapters, this textbook offers a selection of exercises ranging from routine calculations to quite challenging problems.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Particularly able prospective maths students with stronger backgrounds will likely get more out of self-studying either Spivak's Calculus or Apostol's Calculus Volume I. Now in an updated and expanded third edition, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics provides an informed and informative presentation into a representative selection of fundamental ideas in mathematics … . In addition to the pre-Analysis and pre-Algebra chapters, there are chapters on complex numbers, inequalities, some number theory and combinatorics, and the Platonic solids.

I would imagine that this book must be perfect for maths undergraduates in their first year - or even in the summer before starting. Of course here the ambiguity reigns supreme, as it is not clear how to define the notion of "people living in Denmark" with precision, unless (and this should be specified when defining such a set) we add the sentence "according to a given population census". New to the Fourth EditionTwo new chapters that serve as an introduction to abstract algebra via the theory of groups, covering abstract reasoning as well as many examples and applicationsNew material on inequalities, counting methods, the inclusion-exclusion principle, and Eulers phi function Numerous new exercises, with solutions to the odd-numbered onesThrough careful explanations and examples, this popular textbook illustrates the power and beauty of basic mathematical concepts in number theory, discrete mathematics, analysis, and abstract algebra.

An ideal, accessible, elegant, student-friendly, and highly recommended choice for classroom textbooks for high school and college level mathematics curriculums, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics is further enhanced with a selective bibliography, an index of symbols, and a comprehensive index. It covers not only standard material but also many interesting topics not usually encountered at this level, such as the theory of solving cubic equations; Euler's formula for the numbers of corners, edges, and faces of a solid object and the five Platonic solids; the use of prime numbers to encode and decode secret information; the theory of how to compare the sizes of two infinite sets; and the rigorous theory of limits and continuous functions. The book will continue to serve well as a transitional course to rigorous mathematics and as an introduction to the mathematical world .Accessible to all students with a sound background in high school mathematics, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics, Third Edition presents some of the most fundamental and beautiful ideas in pure mathematics.

Rispetto a quello che ricordo io del mio primo anno di matematica, il livello è molto più basso; sarà che la facoltà di Pisa voleva mantenere la sua fama e teneva corsi molti teorici, però garantisco che non lo si può certo usare come libro di testo, o forse sì ma per informatica. Questo libro è fondamentalmente un'introduzione all'analisi matematica e all'algebra che si studiano (negli USA) nel primo anno di università, il che significa che è tranquillamente alla portata di un liceale nostrano dell'ultimo anno, tenuto conto che le dimostrazioni più complicate sono omesse.

The notion of a proof will no longer be foreign, but also mathematics will not be viewed as some abstract black box. In addition to preparing students to go on into mathematics, it is also a wonderful choice for a student who will not necessarily go on in mathematics but wants a gentle but fascinating introduction into the culture of mathematics.
