Homework Help: Constructing the real numbers, set theory

  1. Aug 4, 2008 #1
    My analysis text mentions in passing that the real numbers can be constructed rigorously starting from set theory. I was wondering if there were a resource on the web that might go over this and show the proofs of how this is done?
