For courses in undergraduate Analysis and Transition to Advanced Mathematics. Analysis with an Introduction to Proof, Fifth Editionhelps fill in the groundwork students need to succeed in real analysis-often considered the most difficult course in the undergraduate curriculum. By introducing logic and emphasizing the structure and nature of the arguments used, this text helps students move carefully from computationally oriented courses to abstract mathematics with its emphasis on proofs. Clear expositions and examples, helpful practice problems, numerous drawings, and selected hints/answers make this text readable, student-oriented, and teacher- friendly.

Author Biography

Steven Lay is a Professor of Mathematics at Lee University in Cleveland, TN.  He received M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the University of California at Los Angeles.  He has authored three books for college students, from a senior level text on Convex Sets to an Elementary Algebra text for underprepared students.  The latter book introduced a number of new approaches to preparing students for algebra and led to a series of books for middle school math.  Professor Lay has a passion for teaching, and the desire to communicate mathematical ideas more clearly has been the driving force behind his writing.  He comes from a family of mathematicians, with his father Clark Lay having been a member of the School Mathematics Study Group in the 1960s and his brother David Lay authoring a popular text on Linear Algebra. He is a member of the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Association of America, and the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences.
