*T. W. Körner*

Many students acquire knowledge of a large number of theorems and
methods of calculus without being able to say how they work together. This book
provides those students with the coherent account that they need. *A
Companion to Analysis* explains the problems that must be resolved in order
to procure a rigorous development of the calculus and shows the student how to
deal with those problems.

Starting with the real line, the book moves on to finite-dimensional spaces and then to metric spaces. Readers who work through this text will be ready for courses such as measure theory, functional analysis, complex analysis, and differential geometry. Moreover, they will be well on the road that leads from mathematics student to mathematician.

With this book, well-known author Thomas Körner provides able and hard-working students a great text for independent study or for an advanced undergraduate or first-level graduate course. It includes many stimulating exercises. An appendix contains a large number of accessible but non-routine problems that will help students advance their knowledge and improve their technique.

#### Readership

Advanced undergraduates, graduate students and research mathematicians interested in analysis.

#### Reviews

This book not only provides a lot of solid information about real analysis, it also answers those questions which students want to ask but cannot figure how to formulate. To read this book is to spend time with one of the modern masters in the subject.

-- Steven G. Krantz, Washington University, St. Louis

T. W. Körner's

One of the major assets of the book is Körner's very personal writing style. By keeping his own engagement with the material continually in view, he invites the reader to a similarly high level of involvement. And the witty and erudite asides that are sprinkled throughout the book are a real pleasure.

-- Gerald Folland, University of Washington, Seattle

This is a remarkable book. It provides deep and invaluble insight into many parts of analysis, presented by an accomplished analysist. Korner covers all of the important aspects of an advanced calculus course along with a discussion of other interesting topics.

-- Paul Sally, University of Chicago

The book is a very useful companion to standard analysis textbooks. It stands out in virtue of the author's style of writing, characterized by a pleasant mixture of various erudite reflections.
