### About this deal

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. A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics, Second Edition provides a robust bridge between high school and university mathematics, expanding upon basic topics in ways that will interest first-year students in mathematics and related fields and stimulate further study. It is many years since I did my engineering degree and I wanted to brush up my maths and learn the modern approach to the subject. 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.

Written in a rigorous yet accessible style, it continues to provide a robust bridge between high school and higher-level mathematics, enabling students to study more advanced courses in abstract algebra and analysis. The author introduces the absolutely unnecessary relation "i The book will continue to serve well as a transitional course to rigorous mathematics and as an introduction to the mathematical world .Images Donate icon An illustration of a heart shape Donate Ellipses icon An illustration of text ellipses. When I used it for a course, students could not get enough, and I have been recommending independent study from it to students wishing to take a core course in analysis without having taken the prerequisite course. The third edition of this popular text contains three new chapters that provide an introduction to mathematical analysis.

Accessible to all students with a sound background in high school mathematics, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics, Fourth Edition presents some of the most fundamental and beautiful ideas in pure mathematics. 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". 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. Good book to give to a student yet to apply to university and who is considering a degree in mathematics.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Through 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.

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.

Moreover, the book is confusing at times: concepts are often not precisely defined, and if you have the gift of critical thinking you will find lots of places where the logic standards of the book are less than acceptable. applied mathematicians also need to know about proofs, counting, inequalities, bounds, and even groups ― and this book could help them learn all that. 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. 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, the use of Euler’s formula to study the five Platonic solids, the use of prime numbers to encode and decode secret information, and the theory of how to compare the sizes of two infinite sets.
