**Mathematical analysis** is a branch of mathematics that studies continuous change and
includes the theories of differentiation, integration, measure, limits, infinite series, and analytic functions.<ref>Edwin Hewitt and Karl Stromberg, "Real and Abstract Analysis", Springer-Verlag, 1965</ref><ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation

These theories are usually studied in the context of real and complex numbers and functions. Analysis evolved from calculus, which involves the elementary concepts and techniques of analysis. Analysis may be distinguished from geometry; however, it can be applied to any space of mathematical objects that has a definition of nearness (a topological space) or specific distances between objects (a metric space).
