Abstract

This MQP reviews the history of nonstandard analysis, how it can be used, and its applications in basic analysis. The process of completing many proofs and exercises gave way to a new understanding of how nonstandard analysis can be extended and applied to different areas of mathematics. Hyperreals and infinitesimals are also reviewed.
