Open Educational Resources (OER) in the Discipline of Mathematics (July 2018): Real and Complex Analysis

By Andrew Misseldine

Real and Complex Analysis

The number of excellent open texts makes this another difficult category to curate. However, Introduction to Real Analysis by William Trench comes to the fore. As mentioned previously, Trench is a veteran author of high quality OER math textbooks; in this case, he has written a strong textbook with all the features one might want from a first semester real analysis text. Other textbooks in this category that should be highlighted are Elementary Real Analysis, by Brian S. Thomson, Judith B. Bruckner, and Andrew M. Bruckner; Mathematical Analysis I  by Elias Zakon; Basic Analysis: Introduction to Real Analysis by Jiří Lebl; and A First Course in Complex Analysis, by Matthias Beck, Gerald Marchesi, Dennis Pixton, and Lucas Sabalka.
