Description

A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics, Second Edition provides a robust bridge between high school and university mathematics, expanding upon basic topics in ways that will interest first-year students in mathematics and related fields and stimulate further study. An ideal, accessible, elegant, student-friendly, and highly recommended choice for classroom textbooks for high school and college-level mathematics curriculums, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics is further enhanced with a selective bibliography, an index of symbols, and a comprehensive index. 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.

Particularly able prospective maths students with stronger backgrounds will likely get more out of self-studying either Spivak's Calculus or Apostol's Calculus Volume I. Easier to sink one's teeth into and requires less mathematical maturity than something like Spivak's Calculus yet stills maintains the flavour of undergraduate mathematics - thereby making it a better fit for students who are either yet to settle on studying maths or whose backgrounds at such a point in time may not yet be strong enough to cope with a more challenging text (i.

Good book to give to a student yet to apply to university and who is considering a degree in mathematics.

In addition to preparing students to go on into 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. 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; Eulers 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. Divided into 22 short chapters, this textbook offers a selection of exercises ranging from routine calculations to quite challenging problems. Moreover, the book is confusing at times: concepts are often not precisely defined, and if you have the gift of critical thinking you will find lots of places where the logic standards of the book are less than acceptable.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. 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. By carefully explaining various topics in analysis, geometry, number theory, and combinatorics, this textbook illustrates the power and beauty of basic mathematical concepts.

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.
