Title  Excursions in classical analysis: Pathways to advanced problem solving and undergraduate research 
Author(s)  Hongwei Chen 
Publication  Washington, Mathematical Association of America, 2010. 
Description  xiii, 301p. 
Abstract Note  Excursions in Classical Analysis will introduce students to advanced problem solving and undergraduate research in two ways: it will provide a tour of classical analysis, showcasing a wide variety of problems that are placed in historical context, and it will help students gain mastery of mathematical discovery and proof.
The author presents a variety of solutions for the problems in the book. Some solutions reach back to the work of mathematicians like Leonhard Euler while others connect to other beautiful parts of mathematics. Readers will frequently see problems solved by using an idea that might at first glance, not even seem to apply to that problem. Other solutions employ a specific technique that can be used to solve many different kinds of problems. Excursions emphasizes the rich and elegant interplay between continuous and discrete mathematics by applying induction, recursion, and combinatorics to traditional problems in classical analysis.
The carefully selected assortment of problems presented at the end of the chapters includes 22 Putnam problems, 50 MAA Monthly problems, and 14 open problems. These problems are not related to the chapter topics, but connect naturally to other problems and even serve as introductions to other areas of mathematics.
The book will be useful in students' preparations for mathematics competitions, in undergraduate reading courses and seminars, and in analysis courses as a supplement. The book is also ideal for self study, since the chapters are independent of one another and may be read in any order.
