Bounds on zeroes theorem? requires calc proof?

  1. Nov 30, 2011 #1
    I've come across the bounds on zeros theorem in my algebra book, but they don't seem to try to offer proof for it. Does this proof require calculus?

    So I do need more than algebra to understand it and this is why they didn't show proof of it?

    Yes to understand that you'll need to learn so set theory and logic i believe.

    There might be proofs with only algebra, but I do not know them.

    what are good books on this?

    Read "Complex Analysis" by Freitag and Busam. But in order to be able to read that, you'll need some familiarity with calculus I-III and real analysis.

    What book would be good for real analysis?
  12. Dec 7, 2011 #11
    I'd say "principles of real analysis" by Aliprantis and Burkinshaw/
