Book DetailsAMS/MAA TextbooksVolume: 70; 2022; 360 ppMSC: Primary 26; 37; 39
Welcome to Real Analysis is designed for use in an introductory undergraduate course in real analysis. Much of the development is in the setting of the general metric space. The book makes substantial use not only of the real line and \(n\)dimensional Euclidean space, but also sequence and function spaces. Proving and extending results from singlevariable calculus provides motivation throughout. The more abstract ideas come to life in meaningful and accessible applications. For example, the contraction mapping principle is used to prove an existence and uniqueness theorem for solutions of ordinary differential equations and the existence of certain fractals; the continuity of the integration operator on the space of continuous functions on a compact interval paves the way for some results about power series.
The exposition is exceedingly clear and wellmotivated. There are a wide variety of exercises and many pedagogical innovations. For example, each chapter includes Reading Questions so that students can check their understanding. In addition to the standard material in a first real analysis course, the book contains two concluding chapters on dynamical systems and fractals as an illustration of the power of the theory developed.
ReadershipUndergraduate students interested in learning real analysis.

In terms of writing: this book is clear, challenging, and rewarding in its exposition. The ordering of topics is wellvetted; examples and proof details are wellchosen; and the exposition is wellwritten and imminently readable. The text offers reading questions after each section, as well as a variety of exercises at the end of each chapter. I appreciated both forms of questions; the 'exercises' are varied and completely appropriate, while the 'reading questions' allow for students to check their comprehension (and model the kinds of questions we want students to ask themselves as they read any mathematical text). Additionally, the text benefits from 'analytical advice' text boxes that offer justintime discussions of proof styles and big ideas in proofwriting.
...This seems to be an excellent text which truly highlights how the core elements of analysis can be applied in a number of powerful ways beyond calculus. I would argue against using this text in a course that uses Real Analysis as an 'introduction' to proofwriting, as such students might find this text a bit of a struggle. However, a wellprepared undergraduate will benefit immensely from the exposition here, and I would recommend the text to such a student without reservation.
