About the book
Intermediate Mathematical Analysis aims at presenting advanced topics such as continuity, uniform continuity, tests of convergence of series, uniform convergence of series, power series, polynomial approximations and Fourier series in a more general setting. Metric and Normed Linear Spaces are introduced at an early stage and are used wherever found advantageous.
The book places a consistent emphasis on showing the power of the classical analysis by applying it to the study of real valued functions and their applications.
Requiring only a nodding acquaintance with ? – d type arguments and definition of Riemann integral, the book will provide sufficient background material for studies in Functional Analysis, Topology, Complex Analysis, Theory of Differential Equations and so on.
