Description

Students are taught how to understand and create proofs, but they are also given a glimpse of what it is all for…applied mathematicians also need to know about proofs, counting, inequalities, bounds, and even groups — and this book could help them learn all that.

Divided into 22 short chapters, this textbook offers a selection of exercises ranging from routine calculations to quite challenging problems. It will just give you a superficial overview of a bunch of theories and theorems that you will encounter sooner or later, in better form, in your college years.

These new chapters introduce the ideas of limits of sequences and continuous functions as well as several interesting applications, such as the use of the intermediate value theorem to prove the existence of n th roots. It would in fact be difficult to find in this excellent book three consecutive pages that do not contain material useful to students or practitioners. 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.Students are taught how to understand and create proofs, but they are also given a glimpse of what it is all for. 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.

The book will continue to serve well as a transitional course to rigorous mathematics and as an introduction to the mathematical world . Can also make for a fun read over Summer for a student who will be pursuing a maths degree once the term starts.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.

The notion of a proof will no longer be foreign, but also mathematics will not be viewed as some abstract black box. In addition to preparing students to go on in mathematics, it is also a wonderful choice for a student who will not necessarily go on in mathematics but wants a gentle but fascinating introduction into the culture of mathematics. 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.A diligent, active reader of this outstanding book will have the best foundation at minimum cost for making meaningful contributions to mathematics, science, or engineering.
