An elementary text on the theory of functions of one real variable this book is intended for students with a good understanding of calculus as it begins with material on the real number system as a Dedekind complete ordered field and continuous functions. Pointwise and uniform convergence of series of functions, power series are discussed and a detailed treatment of differentiation, including differentiation of uniform limits of sequences is provided. Also included is an exhaustive treatment of both Riemann integration and Riemann-Stieltjes integration. Some features of this work, such as why Dedekind completeness is necessary for ensuring that nonconstant functions cannot have derivative zero everywhere without using multiple integration are exclusive to this book. There are several illustrative and worked examples, and a large number of problems with solutions (available on a compact disc).

The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008
In 1999, in The Return of Depression Economics, Paul Krugman surveyed the economic crises that had swept across Asia and Latin America, and pointed out that those crises were a warning for all of us: like diseases that have become resistant to antibiotics, the economic maladies that caused the Great Depression were making a comeback. In...
Web Form Design: Filling in the Blanks
Forms make or break the most crucial online interactions: checkout, registration, and any task requiring information entry. In Web Form Design, Luke Wroblewski draws on original research, his considerable experience at Yahoo! and eBay, and the perspectives of many of the field's leading designers to show you everything you need to know...
Linux Socket Programming by Example Linux Socket Programming by Example begins with a very basic introduction to the fundamentals of socket level programming. As the chapters progress, you are introduced to related concepts, such as forming network addresses, Ipv6, the TCP/IP protocol suite and options, writing servers, and creating secure applications. You will also learn about... Security+ Certification Training Kit
