Excerpts from the Book: 
This is a text for a two-term course in introductory real analysis for junior or senior mathematics majors and engineering and science students with a serious interest in mathematics. Prospective educators of mathematically gifted high school students can also benefit from the mathematical maturity that can be gained from an introductory real analysis course.

The book is designed to fill the gaps left in the development of calculus as it is usually presented in an elementary course, and to provide the background required for insight into more advanced courses in pure and applied mathematics.

The standard elementary calculus sequence is the only specific prerequisite for Chapters 1-5, which deal with real-valued functions. (However, other analysis oriented courses, such as elementary differential equations, provide useful preparatory experience.) Chapters 6 and 7 require a working knowledge of determinants, matrices, and linear transformations, typically available from a first course in linear algebra. Chapter 8 is accessible after completion of Chapters 1-5.
