Introduction to integration provides a unified account of integration theory, giving a practical guide to the Lebesgue integral and its uses, with a wealth of illustrative examples and exercises. The book begins with a simplified Lebesgue-style integral (in lieu of the more traditionalRiemann integral), intended for a first course in integration. This suffices for elementary applications, and serves as an introduction to the core of the book. The final chapters present selected applications, mostly drawn from Fourier analysis. The emphasis throughout is on integrable functionsrather than on measure. The book is designed primarily as an undergraduate or introductory graduate textbook. It is similar in style and level to Priestley's Introduction to complex analysis, for which it provides a companion volume, and is aimed at both pure and applied mathematicians.Prerequisites are the rudiments of integral calculus and a first course in real analysis.
