    Non-standard analysis

    Hi,

    I'm interestedd in non-standard analysis. The concept of infinitesimals always appeared fairly perplexing to me and the idea that you can do all that Newton, Leibniz, ... did with them in a rigorous way seems really interesting.

    But... applications of non-standard analysis seem to be scarce and it doesn't seem to be an easy topic.

    What do you think? If you studied non-standard analysis, did it pay off? Did it expand your understanding in a significant way?
