FOUNDATIONS OF ANALYSIS
By EDMUND LANDAU
Landau's famous Grundlagen der Analysis is now made available for the first time in English translation.
"Certainly no clearer treatment of the foundations of the number system can be offered... Starting with Peano's five axioms . . . Landau develops, with the utmost elegance, precision and completeness, the theories of the natural numbers, fractions, real numbers and complex numbers. Never before has this subject been treated with such explicitness.
"One can only be thankful to the author for this fundamental piece of exposition which is alive with his vitality and genius."
 /.   F.   Ritt,   American   Mathematical Monthly.
(Note: The German edition of this book, containing a complete German-English vocabulary, will continue to be available. Orders for the German edition should specify "German-language edition." Price $2.75.)
