An Introduction to Multivariable Analysis

An Introduction to Multivariable Analysis

Piotr Mikusinski, Michael Taylor

296 pages, parution le 16/01/2002


The subject of multivariable analysis is of interest to pure and applied mathematicians, physicists, electrical, mechanical and systems engineers, mathematical economists, biologists, and statisticians. This introductory text provides graduate students and researchers in the above fields with various ways of handling some of the useful but difficult concepts encountered in dealing with the machinery of differential forms on manifolds. The approach here is to make such concepts as concrete as possible.
Highlights and key features:

  • systematic exposition, supported by numerous examples and exercises from the computational to the theoretical
  • brief development of linear algebra in RN, presenting concepts that figure prominently later in the book
  • review of the elements of metric space theory
  • treatment of standard multivariable material: differentials as linear transformations, the inverse and implicit function theorems, Taylor's theorem, the change of variables for multiple integrals (the most complex proof in the book)
  • Lebesgue integration introduced in a concrete way rather than via measure theory. This involves certain series 'expansions' of functions, reduces the theory of integration to that of absolutely convergent series, which in the latter chapters serves to simplify the definition of integration of real-valued functions on manifolds
  • latter chapters move beyond RN to manifolds and analysis on manifolds, covering the wedge product, differential forms, and the generalized Stokes' theorem
  • bibliography and comprehensive index

This book takes the reader on a journey through the core topics in multivariable analysis that are basic for senior undergraduate and graduate studies in differential geometry, and for analysis in N-dimensions and on manifolds. The book may be used for self-study to anyone working in the areas of dynamical systems, control theory and optimization, general relativity and electromagnetic phenomena. Aside from mathematical maturity, prerequisites are a one-semester undergraduate course in advanced calculus or analysis, and linear algebra.
