How We Got from There to Here: A Story of Real Analysis

Copyright Year: 2014

Contributors: Rogers and Boman

Publisher: Open SUNY

License: CC BY-NC-SA

While this is certainly a reasonable approach from a logical point of view, it is not how the subject evolved, nor is it necessarily the best way to introduce students to the rigorous but highly non-intuitive definitions and proofs found in analysis.
