When I first encounter the vast topic REAL ANALYSIS, searched internet for the best books available on this topic But I never found books that explains me like Iam a child (Just kidding right!!!) Well I got the best book in my hand which is “ELEM. Although Liu Hui mentions Chang's skill, it isn't clear Chang had the mathematical genius to qualify for this list, but he would still be a strong candidate due to his book's immense historical importance: It was the dominant Chinese mathematical text for centuries, and had great influence throughout the Far East. The mathematical theory of the rainbow – in modern language: a mathematical model for the formation of the rainbow (going back to Descartes) – is a very good example for the modelling cycle: from real situation to real model, mathematization, working at the model, the transfer back and forecasts for the underlying problem, validation by.
