Further Study of Limits

  • Harold M. Edwards

Abstract

The fundamental operations of calculus—differentiation and integration—involve limits of real numbers. In order to give a rigorous definition of these operations one must therefore have a precise formulation of the concept of real number. This in turn requires a re−examination of the concept of number itself.
