This new approach to real analysis stresses the use of the subject with respect to applications, i.e., how the principles and theory of real analysis can be applied in a variety of settings in subjects ranging from Fourier series and polynomial approximation to discrete dynamical systems and nonlinear optimization. Users will be prepared for more intensive work in each topic through these applications and their accompanying exercises. This book is appropriate for math enthusiasts with a prior knowledge of both calculus and linear algebra.

From the reviews:
Real Analysis with Real Applications:
"A well balanced book! The first solid analysis course, with proofs, is central in the offerings of any math.-dept.;-- and yet, the new books that hit the market don't always hit the mark: The balance between theory and applications, --between technical proofs and intuitive ideas,--between classical and modern subjects, and between real life exercises vs. the ones that drill a new concept. The Davidson-Donsig book is outstanding, and it does hit the mark. The writing is both systematic and engaged.- Refreshing! Novel: includes wavelets, approximation theory, discrete dynamics, differential equations, Fourier analysis, and wave mechanics." (Palle E. T. Jorgenson, Review from Amazon.com)
"In this exceptionally rich work, Davidson (Univ. of Waterloo, Canada) and Donsig (Univ. of Nebraska, Lincoln) meld material that is found in standard introductory real analysis works ... and applications from both the mathematical and `real' worlds ... . The volume contains a substantial collection of exercises. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and graduate students." (D. Robbins, Choice, Vol. 47 (10), June, 2010)
"This book is intended to provide an introduction both to real analysis and to a range of important applications in various fields. ... In summary, this book is well conceived, well executed, and richer than many recent volumes in the same field. Teachers wanting a solid and interesting treatment that goes right to the point and does not bore good students with verbose explanations will find this book much to their liking. The volume also contains an adequate supply of exercises." (Teodora-Liliana Radulescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1179, 2010)
