Georgi Shilov of Moscow University is one of the most respected of living mathematicians. It is a rather uncommon event when a mathematician as active and as creative as he is prepares a textbook at a relatively elementary level. This one is meant to be used by undergraduates, in most programs in their senior year, and it is written for science and engineering students as well as for mathematics majors.
The book fully proves over 340 theorems and probably includes more examples and applications than any comparable text. It is organized into eleven chapters, each of which incorporates a problem set designed to illustrate, amplify, and enrich the material covered (selected hints and answers are given at the end).
The starting point of the development is a set of axioms for real numbers (rather than a set of axioms for the natural numbers, as in some other approaches to the subject). The concepts next introduced include, roughly in their order of appearance, set theory, isomorphisms, n-dimensional space, and the field of complex numbers; metric spaces; a general theory of limits that comprises all those considered in analysis, from limits of a numerical sequence to the notions of the derivative and integral; continuous numerical functions on the real line, including the logarithmic, exponential, and the trigonometric functions; the algebra and topology of complex numbers and the fundamental theorem of algebra; infinite series, dealing not only with numerical series but also with those whose terms are vectors and functions (including power series); the differential calculus proper, with Taylor's series leading to a natural extension of real analysis into the complex domain; the general theory of Riemann integration; and, finally, the technique of analytic functions and a consideration of improper integrals that makes full use of the technique that has now been put at the student's disposal.
