User-friendly--yet rigorous--in approach, this introduction to analysis meets readers where they are by providing extra support for those who like a slower, less detailed approach, but not getting in the way of those who want a quicker pace and deeper focus. It uses analogy and geometry to motivate and explain the theory, and precedes many complicated proofs with a "Strategy" which motivates the proof, shows why it was chosen, and why it should work. Examples follow many theorems, showing why each hypothesis is needed, allowing readers to remember the hypotheses by recalling the examples. Proofs are presented in complete detail, with each step carefully documented, and proofs are linked together in a way that teaches readers to think ahead. Physical interpretations are used to examine some concepts from a second or third point of view. Includes over 200 worked examples and over 600 exercises. Provides extensive coverage of multidimensional analysis.

Designed as a "bridge" between sophomore-level calculus to graduate-level courses that use analytic ideas, this text provides an unusually friendly, but rigorous treatment. It is friendly because the text helps link proofs together in a way that teaches students to think ahead: "Why this Theorem?"About the Author:
William Wade received his PhD in harmonic analysis from the University of California—Riverside. He has been a professor of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Tennessee for more than forty years. During that time, he has received multiple awards including two Fulbright Scholarships, the Chancellor's Award for Research and Creative Achievements, the Dean's Award for Extraordinary Service, and the National Alumni Association Outstanding Teaching Award.
Wade’s research interests include problems of uniqueness, growth and dyadic harmonic analysis, on which he has published numerous papers, two books and given multiple presentations on three continents. His current publication, An Introduction to Analysis,is now in its fourth edition.
In his spare time, Wade loves to travel and take photographs to document his trips. He is also musically inclined, and enjoys playing classical music, mainly baroque on the trumpet, recorder, and piano.
