A Course in Real Analysis provides a firm foundation in real analysis concepts and principles while presenting a broad range of topics in a clear and concise manner. This student-oriented text balances theory and applications, and contains a wealth of examples and exercises. Throughout the text, the authors adhere to the idea that most students learn more efficiently by progressing from the concrete to the abstract. McDonald and Weiss have also created real application chapters on probability theory, harmonic analysis, and dynamical systems theory. The text offers considerable flexibility in the choice of material to cover.
