Описание: This text is designed to give the student a background in the foundations of algebra and analysis. The algebra of symbolic logic and the concept of set are introduced early in the text so that the main definitional development of the complex number system flows easily from a set of postulates for the natural numbers. Important concepts are introduced when needed to provide better motivation through immediate usage. Thus, the approach is integrated for a greater continuity of ideas than would be possible if a course in sets were followed by a course in the number systems.
