The Fourth Scandinavian Logic Symposium and the First Soviet-Finnish Logic Conference were held in JyvaskyIa, Finland, June 29-July 6, 1976. The Conferences were organized by a committee which consisted of the editors of the present volume. The Conferences were supported financially by the Ministry of Education of Finland, by the Academy of Finland, and by the Division of Logic, Methodology, and Philosophy of Science of the International Union of History of Science. The Philosophical Society of Finland and the Jyvaskyla Summer Festival gave valuable help in various practicalities. 35 papers by authors representing 10 countries were presented at the two meetings. Of those papers 24 appear here.

An accessible introduction to real analysis and its connectionto elementary calculus Bridging the gap between the development and history of realanalysis, Introduction to Real Analysis: An EducationalApproach presents a comprehensive introduction to real analysiswhile also offering a survey of the field. With its balance ofhistorical background, key calculus methods, and hands-onapplications, this book provides readers with a solid foundationand fundamental understanding of real analysis. The book begins with an outline of basic calculus, including aclose examination of problems illustrating links and potentialdifficulties. Next, a fluid introduction to real analysis ispresented, guiding readers through the basic topology of realnumbers, limits, integration, and a series of functions in naturalprogression. The book moves on to analysis with more rigorousinvestigations, and the topology of the line is presented alongwith a discussion of limits and continuity that includes unusualexamples in order to direct readers' thinking beyond intuitivereasoning and on to more complex understanding. The dichotomy ofpointwise and uniform convergence is then addressed and is followedby differentiation and integration. Riemann-Stieltjes integrals andthe Lebesgue measure are also introduced to broaden the presentedperspective. The book concludes with a collection of advancedtopics that are connected to elementary calculus, such as modelingwith logistic functions, numerical quadrature, Fourier series, andspecial functions. Detailed appendices outline key definitions and theorems inelementary calculus and also present additional proofs, projects,and sets in real analysis. Each chapter references historicalsources on real analysis while also providing proof-orientedexercises and examples that facilitate the development ofcomputational skills. In addition, an extensive bibliographyprovides additional resources on the topic. Introduction to Real Analysis: An Educational Approach isan ideal book for upper- undergraduate and graduate-level realanalysis courses in the areas of mathematics and education. It isalso a valuable reference for educators in the field of appliedmathematics.

The Second Edition of Ordinary Differential Equations: An Introduction to the Fundamentals builds on the successful First Edition. It is unique in its approach to motivation, precision, explanation and method. Its layered approach offers the instructor opportunity for greater flexibility in coverage and depth. Students will appreciate the author’s approach and engaging style. Reasoning behind concepts and computations motivates readers. New topics are introduced in an easily accessible manner before being further developed later. The author emphasizes a basic understanding of the principles as well as modeling, computation procedures and the use of technology. The students will further appreciate the guides for carrying out the lengthier computational procedures with illustrative examples integrated into the discussion. Features of the Second Edition: Emphasizes motivation, a basic understanding of the mathematics, modeling and use of technology A layered approach that allows for a flexible presentation based on instructor's preferences and students’ abilities An instructor’s guide suggesting how the text can be applied to different courses New chapters on more advanced numerical methods and systems (including the Runge-Kutta method and the numerical solution of second- and higher-order equations) Many additional exercises, including two "chapters" of review exercises for first- and higher-order differential equations An extensive on-line solution manual About the author: Kenneth B. Howell earned bachelor’s degrees in both mathematics and physics from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and master’s and doctoral degrees in mathematics from Indiana University. For more than thirty years, he was a professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Dr. Howell published numerous research articles in applied and theoretical mathematics in prestigious journals, served as a consulting research scientist for various companies and federal agencies in the space and defense industries, and received awards from the College and University for outstanding teaching. He is also the author of Principles of Fourier Analysis, Second Edition (Chapman & Hall/CRC, 2016).
