This is basically an expanded and cleaned up version of my lecture notes for Math 131B. In the US, it is available through the American Mathematical Society. It is part of a two-volume series; here is my page for Volume I.

Errata prior to the corrected third edition may be found here.

— Errata for the corrected third edition —

  • Page 10: In Exercise 1.1.8, a right parenthesis is missing at the end of the last sentence. In Exercise 1.1.11, {\mathbf R}^n should be X.
  • Page 15: In Proposition 1.2.15, \supset should be \supseteq (two occurrences).
  • Page 16: In the first paragraph, the first parenthetical comment should be closed after “… and hence outside of E.”  In the second parenthetical comment, the period should be outside the parenthesis. “The point 0” should be “The point (0,0)” (two occurrences).
  • Page 21: In Exercie 1.4.7 (b), {\bf R}^+ should be [0,+\infty).
  • Page 22: In Definition 1.5.3, insert “for every x \in X” before “there exists a ball” (in order to keep the empty metric space bounded).  Also, add the requirement that r be finite.
  • Page 23: In Theorem 1.5.8, I should be A in the statement of the theorem (four occurrences).  In Case 2 of the proof, B(y,r_0/2) \in V_\alpha should be B(y,r_0/2) \subset V_\alpha.  One should in fact split into three cases, r_0=0, 0 < r_0 < \infty, and r_0=\infty.  For the last case, write “For this case we argue as in Case 2, but replacing the role of r_0/2 by (say) 1“. In the proof of Theorem 1.5.8, Y \subset \bigcup_{\alpha \in F} V_\alpha should be Y \subseteq \bigcup_{\alpha \in F} V_\alpha.
  • Page 26: In Exercise 1.5.10, n should be a natural number rather than a positive integer (in order to ensure that the empty set is totally bounded).
  • Page 29: In Theorem 2.1.4(c), all occurrences of \subset should be \subseteq.
  • Page 30: In Exercise 2.1.7, E \subset Y should be E \subseteq Y.
  • Page 33: Add an additional Exercise 2.2.12 after Exercise 2.2.11: “Let f: {\bf R}^2 \to {\bf R} be the function defined by f(x,y) := x^2/y when y \neq 0, and f(x,y) := 0 when y = 0.  Show that \lim_{t \to 0} f(tx, ty) = f(0,0) for every (x,y) \in {\bf R}^2, but that f is not continuous at the origin.  Thus being continuous on every line through the origin is not enough to guarantee continuity at the origin!”
  • Page 34:  In Proposition 2.3.2, replace “Furthermore, ” with “Furthermore, if X is non-empty”,
  • Page 37: In Theorem 2.4.5, replace “Let X be a subset…” with “Let X be a non-empty subset…”.
  • Page 38: In Exercise 2.4.7, “replace “every path-connected set” by “every non-empty path-connected set”.  In Exercise 2.4.6, add the hypothesis that I is non-empty.
  • Page 43: Exercise 2.5.8 is incorrect (the space \omega_1+1 is sequentially compact) and should be deleted.
  • Page 44: In Exercise 2.5.14, add “Hausdorff” before “topological space”.
  • Page 46: In Definition 3.1.1, the domain of f should be E rather than X.  Similarly for Proposition 3.1.5, Exercise 3.1.3, and Exercise 3.1.5.  In Remark 3.1.2, \lim_{x \in x_0; x \in E} f(x) should be \lim_{x \to x_0; x \in E} f(x).
  • Page 47: In Proposition 3.1.5(c), all occurrences of \subset should be \subseteq.
  • Page 48: In Exercise 3.1.1, add the hypothesis “Assume that x_0 is an adherent point of E \backslash \{x_0\} (or equivalently, that x_0 is not an isolated point of E)”.  In Exercise 3.1.3, replace the last three sentences with “If X is a topological space and Y is a Hausdorff topological space (see Exercise 2.5.4), prove the equivalence of Proposition 3.1.5(c) and 3.1.5(d) in this setting, as well as an analogue of Remark 3.1.6.  What happens to these statements of Y is not Hausdorff?”.
  • Page 52: In the last paragraph of the section, f|_Y should be f|_E.
  • Page 56: In item (c) of Section 3.4, a right parenthesis is missing after Definition 3.2.1.  In Definition 3.4.2,  add “uniform metric” next to “sup norm metric” and L^\infty metric”, and restrict the definition of d_\infty to the case when X is non-empty, then add “When X is empty, we instead define d_\infty(f,g)=0“; similarly for Definition 3.5.5. In Remark 3.4.1, “(b) is a special case of (a)” should be “(a) is a special case of (b)”.  Finally, in Definition 3.4.2, use [0,+\infty) in place of {\bf R}^+.
  • Page 59: Before Definition 4.5.5, “exp is increasing” should be “exp is strictly increasing”.
  • Page 60: In Example 3.5.8, “ratio test” should be “root test”, and Theorem 7.5.1 should be “from Analysis I”.  Also “f^{(n)} converges uniformly” should be “\sum_{n=1}^\infty f^{(n)} converges uniformly”.
  • Page 61: In the second to last display, the factor 2 in front of 2 \varepsilon(b-a) should be deleted.
  • Page 62: In Example 3.6.3, Lemma 7.3.3 should be “from Analysis I”.
  • Page 64: At the end of the first paragraph, the period should be inside the parentheses.
  • Page 76: In the first display of Example 4.1.5, (-2^n) should be (-2)^n.
  • Page 77: In Remark 4.1.9, it is more appropriate to add “uniformly” after “assures us that the power series will converge”.
  • Page 78: At the end of the Exercise 4.1.1, a right parenthesis should be added.
  • Page 79: In Definition 4.2.4, add “with the property that every element of E is a limit point of E” at the end of the first sentence.  At the end of the second sentence, add “, in particular f': E \to {\bf R} is also a function on E.”
  • Page 81: In Corollary 4.2.12, “ecah” should be “each”.
  • Page 82: In Exercise 4.2.3, the period should be inside the parentheses.  In the first paragraph, a right parenthesis should be added.
  • Page 83: At the end of Exercise 4.2.8(e), the period should be inside the parentheses.  Also in the hint, Fubini’s theorem should be Theorem 8.2.2 of Analysis I, and a remark needs to be made that one may also need to study an analogue of the d_m in which the c_n are replaced by |c_n|.  At the beginning of the exercise, “anaytic in a” should be “analytic at a“.
  • Page 86: In the last two displays, \limsup_{n \to \infty} should be \limsup_{y \to 1; y \in [0,1)}.
  • Page 92: At the end of Exercise 4.5.1, a right parenthesis should be added.
  • Page 99: before the final paragraph, add “Inspired by Proposition 4.5.4, we shall use \exp(z) and e^z interchangeably.  It is also possible to define a^z for complex z and real a>0, but we will not need to do so in this text.”
  • Page 102: In the second paragraph parenthetical, the period should be inside the parentheses.
  • Page 103: In the second paragraph, a period should be added before “In particular, we have…”.
  • Page 105: In the last paragraph of Exercise 4.7.9, the period should be inside the parentheses (two occurrences).
  • Page 112: In Example 5.2.6, \sin(x) should be \sin(2\pi x).
  • Page 113: In Exercise 5.2.3, “so that” should be “show that”.  For more natural logical flow, the placing of Exercises 5.2.2 and 5.2.4 should be swapped.
  • Page 116: In Theorem 5.4.1, “trignometric” should be “trigonometric”.  In the paragraph after Remark 5.3.8, the period should be inside the parenthesis.
  • Page 125: In the last sentence of Exercise 5.5.3, the period should be inside the parenthesis.  In Exercise 5.5.4, add “Here the derivative of a complex-valued function is defined in exactly the same fashion as for real-valued functions.”
  • Page 129: In Example 6.1.8, “clockwise” should be “counter-clockwise”.
  • Page 133: At the end of the proof of Lemma 6.1.13, 1 \leq j \leq m should be 1 \leq j \leq n.  Expand the sentence “The composition of two linear transformations is again a linear transformation (Exercise 6.1.2).” to “The composition T \circ S of two linear transformations T,S is again a linear transformation (Exercise 6.1.2).  It is customary in linear algebra to abbreviate such compositions T \circ S of linear transformations by droppinng the \circ symbol, thus T \circ S = TS.”
  • Page 134: In Lemma 6.2.1, “x_0 \in E, and L \in {\bf R}” should be “L \in {\bf R}, and let x_0 be a limit point of E“.  In the previous display, E \backslash \{x_0\} should be E - \{x_0\}.
  • Page 135: In the first paragraph, the period should be inside the parenthesis. In Definition 6.2.2, x_0 should be a limit point of E.
  • Page 138: In Example 6.3.3, “the left derivative” should be “the negative of the left derivative”. In the last sentence, the period should be inside the parenthesis.
  • Page 139: In the second paragraph, second sentence, the period should be inside the parenthesis; also in the final sentence.  Expand the third display to “\frac{\partial f}{\partial x_j}(x_0) = D_{e_j} f(x_0) = -D_{-e_j} f(x_0) = f'(x_0) e_j, and expand “From Lemma 6.3.5” to “From Lemma 6.3.5 (and Proposition 9.5.3 from Analysis I)”.
  • Page 140: In the beginning of the proof of Theorem 6.3.8, L(v_j)_{1 \leq j \leq m} should be L(v_j)_{1 \leq j \leq n}, and similarly the sum on the RHS should be from 1 to n rather than from 1 to m.  “Because each partial derivative … is continuous on F” should be “Because each partial derivative … exists on F and is continuous at x_0“.
  • Page 141: The period in the last line (before “and so forth”) should be deleted.
  • Page 142: At the end of the page, (\sum_{j=1}^n v_{j}\frac{\partial f_i}{\partial x_j}(x_0))_{i=1}^m should be (\sum_{j=1}^n v_{j}\frac{\partial f_i}{\partial x_j}(x_0))_{1\leq i\leq m}.
  • Page 144: In Exercise 6.3.2, D_{e_j} f(x_0) = D_{-e_j} f(x_0) should be D_{e_j} f(x_0) = -D_{-e_j} f(x_0).
  • Page 146: In the second paragraph, third sentence, the period should be inside the parenthesis.
  • Page 148: In the proof of Clairaut’s theorem, |x| \leq 2\delta should be \| x\| \leq 2\delta.
  • Page 151: In Exercise 6.6.1, the range of f should be [a,b] rather than {\bf R}.
  • Page 153: In the second paragraph of the proof of Theorem 6.7.2, “f(x_0) is not invertible” should be “f'(x_0) is not invertible”.
  • Page 154: In the last text line, f(x)-x can be g(x)=f(x)-x for clarity.
  • Page 155: In the proof of Theorem 6.7.2, after the display after “we have by the fundamental theorem of calculus. add “where the integral of a vector-valued function is defined by integrating each component separately.”
  • Page 156: V - 0 should be V - \{0\}.  The definition of U should be f^{-1}(V) \cap B(0,r) rather than f^{-1}(B(0,r/2)) (and the later reference to U = f^{-1}(V) can be replaced just by U).
  • Page 157: In the final paragraph of Section 6.7, “differentiable at x_0” should be “differentiable at f(x_0)“.  Add the following Exercise 6.7.4 after Exercise 6.7.3: “Let the notation and hypotheses be as in Theorem 6.7.2.  Show that, after shrinking the open sets U, V if necessary (while still having x_0 \in U, $f(x_0) \in V$ of course), the derivative map f'(x) is invertible for all x \in U, and that the inverse map f^{-1} is differentiable at every point of V with (f^{-1})'(f(x)) = (f'(x))^{-1} for all x \in U.  Finally, show that f^{-1} is continuously differentiable on V.”
  • Page 158: In the first paragraph, final sentence, the period should be inside the parentheses.
  • Page 161: Add the following Exercise 6.8.1: “Let the notation and hypotheses be as in Theorem 6.8.1.  Show that, after shrinking the open sets U,V if  necessary , that the function g becomes continuously differentiable on all of U, and the equation (6.1) holds at all points of U.”
  • Page 163: after “if A and B are disjoint”, add “, and more generally, that m(\bigcup_{n=1}^\infty A_n) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty m(A_n) when A_1,A_2,\dots are disjoint”.
  • Page 164: In the first paragraph of Section 7.1, \Omega \subset {\bf R}^n should be \Omega \subseteq {\bf R}^n.
  • Page 165: Superfluous period in Theorem 7.1.1.  “Since everything is positive” should be “Since everything is non-negative”, and in the preceding sentence, add “; for instance, in this chapter we adopt the convention that an infinite sum \sum_{j \in J} a_j of non-negative quantities a_j is equal to +\infty if the sum is not absolutely convergent.”
  • Page 169: After (7.1), \prod_{j=1}^n [a_i,b_i] should be \prod_{i=1}^n [a_i,b_i].
  • Page 170: In the first paragraph “For all other values if x” should be “For all other values of x“.
  • Page 172: \subset should be \subseteq (three occurrences).
  • Page 173: In Exercise 7.2.2, final sentence: period should be inside parentheses.  Also, add “Here we adopt the convention that c \times +\infty = +\infty \times c is infinite for any 0 < c \leq +\infty and vanishes for c = 0.”  In Example 7.2.12, “countable additivity” should be “countable sub-additivity”.
  • Page 174: In the penultimate paragraph, “identical or distinct” should be “identical or disjoint”, and \subset should be \subseteq. Also, “coset of {\bf R}” should be “coset of {\bf Q}“; in the next paragraph, “the rationals {\bf R}” should be “the rationals {\bf Q}“.
  • Page 175: In the second paragraph, “constrution” should be “construction”.  After the third paragraph, add “Note also that the translates q+E for q \in {\bf Q} are all disjoint.  For, if there were two distinct q,q' \in {\bf Q} with q+E intersecting q'+E, then there would be A,A' \in {\bf R}/{\bf Q} such that q+x_A = q'+x_{A'}.  But then A = x_A + {\bf Q} = x_{A'} + {\bf Q} = A' and thus x_A = x_{A'}, which implies q=q', contradicting the hypothesis.”
  • Page 178: In Lemma 7.4.5, “and any set A” should be “then for any set A“.
  • Page 180: In the first paragraph, “Lemma 7.4.5” should be “Lemma 7.4.4(d)”. Also, in the display preceding this paragraph, enclose the sum in parentheses in the middle and right-hand sides (so that the supremum is taken over the sum rather than just the first term).
  • Page 187: In Example 8.1.2, the period should be inside the parentheses in the first parenthetical, and the final right parenthsis should be deleted.
  • Page 188: In Lemma 8.1.5 the function f should take values in [0,+\infty] rather than {\bf R} (and then the requirement that f be non-negative can be deleted).
  • Page 189: In the parenthetical sentence before Remark 8.1.8, the period should be inside the parentheses.  In the first display in Lemma 8.1.9, the right-hand side summation should be up to N rather than n, and “are a finite number” should be “be a finite number”.  In Example 8.1.7, “the integral” should be “the interval”.
  • Page 190: In the final display in the proof of Lemma 8.1.9, an equals sign should be inserted to the left of the final line.
  • Page 194: In Theorem 8.2.9, f_n should take values in [0,+\infty] rather than {\bf R}.
  • Page 196: Before the second display, Proposition 8.2.6(cdf) should be Proposition 8.2.6(bce).  Also add “It is not difficult to check that the E_n are measurable”.  In the first paragraph, all instances of \subset should be \subseteq.
  • Page 197: After the third display. Proposition 8.1.9(b) should be Proposition 8.1.10(bd).
  • Page 199: Exercise 8.2.4 should be moved to Section 8.3 (as it uses the absolutely convergent integral).
  • Page 200: In the hint to Exercise 8.2.10, the “for all n \geq N” should be moved inside the set builder notation \{ x \in [0,1]: f_n(x) > 1/m \}, thus using \{ x \in [0,1]: f_n(x) > 1/m \hbox{ for all } n \geq N \} instead.
  • Page 201: Before Definition 8.3.2, when Corollary 7.5.6 is invoked, add “(which can be extended to functions taking values in {\mathbf R}^* without difficulty)”.
  • Page 202: In the start of the proof of Theorem 8.3.4, add “If F was infinite on a set of positive measure then F would not be absolutely integrable; thus the set where F is infinite has zero measure.  We may delete this set from \Omega (this does not affect any of the integrals) and thus assume without loss of generality that F(x) is finite for every x\in \Omega, which implies the same assertion for the f_n(x).
  • Page 204: In the second display, \leq A - \frac{1}{n} should be \geq A + \frac{1}{n} instead.
  • Page 205: In Proposition 8.4.1, add the hypothesis that I is bounded.
  • Page 206: In the last paragraph, last sentence, the period should be inside the parentheses. In the last two displays, \Omega should be I.
  • Page 207: In the third paragraph, “Secondly, we could fix” should be “Thirdly, we could fix”.
  • Page 208: In the last paragraph, Lemma 8.1.4 should be Lemma 8.1.5.

Caution: the page numbering is not consistent across editions.  In the third edition, the chapters were renumbered to start from 1, rather than from 12.
