Boolean Algebra and Its Applications by J. Eldon Whitesitt Introductory treatment begins with set theory and fundamentals of Boolean algebra, proceeding to concise accounts of applications to symbolic logic, switching circuits, relay circuits, binary arithmetic, and probability theory. 1961 edition.
Sets, Sequences and Mappings: The Basic Concepts of Analysis by Kenneth Anderson, Dick Wick Hall This text bridges the gap between beginning and advanced calculus. It offers a systematic development of the real number system and careful treatment of mappings, sequences, limits, continuity, and metric spaces. 1963 edition.
Set Theory and the Continuum Hypothesis by Paul J. Cohen This exploration of a notorious mathematical problem is the work of the man who discovered the solution. The award-winning author employs intuitive explanations and detailed proofs in this self-contained treatment. 1966 edition. Copyright renewed 1994.
An advanced-level treatment of the basics of set theory, this text offers students a firm foundation, stopping just short of the areas employing model-theoretic methods. Geared toward upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, it consists of two parts: the first covers pure set theory, including the basic motions, order and well-foundedness, cardinal numbers, the ordinals, and the axiom of choice and some of it consequences; the second deals with applications and advanced topics such as point set topology, real spaces, Boolean algebras, and infinite combinatorics and large cardinals. An appendix comprises useful information on eliminability and conservation theorems, and numerous exercises help students test their grasp of each topic. 1979 edition. 20 figures.
Slightly revised republication of the edition published by Springer-Verlag, Berlin and New York, 1979.
