Real and complex analysis. 3rd ed.

*(English)*Zbl 0925.00005
New York, NY: McGraw-Hill. xiv, 416 p. (1987).

For the reviews of the first two editions (1966, 1974) see Zbl 0142.01701 and Zbl 0278.26001.

According to the preface: This third edition contains an entirely new chapter on differentiation. The basic facts about differentiation are now derived from the existence of the Lebesgue points which in turn is an easy consequence of the so-called weak type inequality that is satisfied by the maximal functions of measures on Euclidean spaces. This approach yields strong theorems with minimal effort. Even more important is that it familiarizes students with maximal functions, since these have become increasingly useful in several areas of analysis.

Also large parts of Chapters 11 and 17 were rewritten and simplified. Several smaller changes have been made in order to improve certain details.
