What is Mathematics? An elementary approach to ideas and methods by
Richard Courant(
Book
)
128 editions published between 1941 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 2,803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Written for beginners and scholars, for students and teachers, for philosophers and engineers, What is Mathematics? is a sparkling collection of mathematical gems that offers an entertaining and accessible portrait of the mathematical world. Brought up to date with a new chapter by Ian Stewart, this second edition offers new insights into recent mathematical developments and describes proofs of the FourColor Theorem and Fermat's Last Theorem, problems that were still open when Courant and Robbins wrote this masterpiece, but ones that have since been solved."Jacket

Introduction to calculus and analysis by
Richard Courant(
Book
)
156 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews: "Volume 1 covers a basic course in real analysis of one variable and Fourier series. It is wellillustrated, wellmotivated and very wellprovided with a multitude of unusually useful and accessible exercises. (...) There are three aspects of Courant and John in which it outshines (some) contemporaries: (i) the extensive historical references, (ii) the chapter on numerical methods, and (iii) the two chapters on physics and geometry. The exercises in Courant and John are put together purposefully, and either look numerically interesting, or are intuitively significant, or lead to applications. It is the best text known to the reviewer for anyone trying to make an analysis course less abstract. (...)" The Mathematical Gazette (75.1991.471)
