Advanced Calculus: An Introduction to Linear AnalysisISBN: 9781118030677
416 pages
February 2011

Advanced Calculus reflects the unifying role of linear algebra in an effort to smooth readers' transition to advanced mathematics. The book fosters the development of complete theoremproving skills through abundant exercises while also promoting a sound approach to the study. The traditional theorems of elementary differential and integral calculus are rigorously established, presenting the foundations of calculus in a way that reorients thinking toward modern analysis.
Following an introduction dedicated to writing proofs, the book is divided into three parts:
Part One explores foundational onevariable calculus topics from the viewpoint of linear spaces, norms, completeness, and linear functionals.
Part Two covers Fourier series and Stieltjes integration, which are advanced onevariable topics.
Part Three is dedicated to multivariable advanced calculus, including inverse and implicit function theorems and Jacobian theorems for multiple integrals.
Numerous exercises guide readers through the creation of their own proofs, and they also put newly learned methods into practice. In addition, a "Test Yourself" section at the end of each chapter consists of short questions that reinforce the understanding of basic concepts and theorems. The answers to these questions and other selected exercises can be found at the end of the book along with an appendix that outlines key terms and symbols from set theory.
Guiding readers from the study of the topology of the real line to the beginning theorems and concepts of graduate analysis, Advanced Calculus is an ideal text for courses in advanced calculus and introductory analysis at the upperundergraduate and beginninggraduate levels. It also serves as a valuable reference for engineers, scientists, and mathematicians.

Leonard F. Richardson, PhD, is Herbert Huey McElveen Professor and Assistant Chair of the Department of Mathematics at Louisiana State University, where he is also Director of Graduate Studies in Mathematics. Dr. Richardson's research interests include harmonic analysis and representation theory.

Provides a rigorous approach to proofs, fundamental theorems, and the foundations of calculus

Highlights the connections and interplay between calculus and linear algebra, emphasizing the concepts of a vector space, a linear transformation (including a linear functional), a norm, and a scalar product

Offers a 'Test Yourself' section at the end of every chapter, which is a sample hour test with solutions to aid the study of readers
 Gradually guides the reader from the study of topology of the real line to the beginning theorems and concepts of graduate analysis, expressed from a modern viewpoint

Features the system of real numbers as a Cauchycomplete Archimedean ordered field, and the traditional theorems of advanced calculus are presented.

Employs a multipart outline approach and provides broad hints to guide students through the more substantial proof exercises. Solutions to most of the nonproof exercises are also provided.
