Begins with chapters on recursive convergence and recursive and relative continuity, then continues with explanations of recursive and relative differentiability, the relative integral and the elementary functions, and ending with an examination of transfinite ordinals. Suitable for graduate students in mathematics and computer science.
Recursive analysis develops natural number computations into a framework appropriate for real numbers. This text is based upon primary recursive arithmetic and presents a unique combination of classical analysis and intuitional analysis. Written by a master in the field, it is suitable for graduate students of mathematics and computer science and can be read without a detailed knowledge of recursive arithmetic.Introductory chapters on recursive convergence and recursive and relative continuity are succeeded by explorations of recursive and relative differentiability, the relative integral, and the elementary functions. A final chapter examines transfinite ordinals, and the text concludes with a helpful appendix of topics related to recursive irrationality and transcendence.
