Continuous Functions on an Interval

  • Sterling K. Berberian
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


Intervals are convex (4.1.4) and closed intervals are compact (4.5.4); these special properties of intervals are reflected in special properties of continuous functions defined on them. Applications include the construction of n’th roots, a characterization of injectivity (§6.4) and automatic continuity of inverse functions (§6.5).
