## Abstract

The present lecture notes have grown from a series of three lectures which were given by the author at the California Institute of Technology in December 1961. The purpose of these lectures was to give a discussion of A. Robinson's theory of infinitesimals and infinitely large numbers which had just appeared in print under the title "Non-Standard Analysis". The title "Non-Standard Analysis" refers to the fact that this theory is an interpretation of analysis in a non-standard model of the arithmetic of the real numbers.
