The third edition of this well known text continues to provide a solid foundation in mathematical analysis for undergraduate and first-year graduate students. The text begins with a discussion of the real number system as a complete ordered field. (Dedekind's construction is now treated in an appendix to Chapter I.) The topological background needed for the development of convergence, continuity, differentiation and integration is provided in Chapter 2. There is a new section on the gamma function, and many new and interesting exercises are included.

This text is part of the Walter Rudin Student Series in Advanced Mathematics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best book on analysis ever Walter Rudins book is a true classic. It is the ultimate reference book on classical real analysis. I used this book and Stromberg only for all my analysis courses through university. It is a tough read, but those that get through it are the ones with the strongest foundations in rigorous mathematics. The chapter on Lebesgue isnt as great though. But everything else is a must read...
