A coherent, self-contained treatment of the central topics of real analysis employing modern infinitesimals.
Nader Vakil is a Professor of Mathematics at Western Illinois University. He received his PhD from the University of Washington, Seattle, where he worked with Edwin Hewitt. His research interests centre on the foundation of mathematical analysis and applications of the theory of modern infinitesimals to topology and functional analysis.
'Nader Vakil has shown with his text that advanced calculus and
much of related abstract analysis can be explained and simplified
within the context of internal set theory.' Peter Loeb, SIAM
'Real Analysis through Modern Infinitesimals intends to be used and to be useful. Nonstandard methods are deployed alongside standard methods. The emphasis is on bringing all tools to bear on questions of analysis. The exercises are interesting and abundant.' James M. Henle and Michael G. Henle, MAA Reviews
