Introductory Real Analysis

By Kolmogorov and Fomin.

These are my proposed solutions. If you find any mistakes, please let me know.

Low priority project, so this will likely take me a long time! :-)

Impressions: This is not the original text by Kolmogorov, but is a highly
edited version by the translator. The exercises seem to be made in the translation
only. Parts are a bit unclear and uses notions that have not been introduced earlier.
Makes a lot of assumptions on previous exposure, e.g. the Heine-Borel theorem on page 92
that the reader "presumably already knows". So this is not really an introduction to
to Real Analysis, and makes references to "Elementary Analysis".
