I'm not yet enough of an expert on topology to give this a truly informed review; I can compare this to only to one other topology text (but plenty of math books).The book starts out with a very compact review of set theory (no pun intended). Then comes a warmup chapter on metric spaces, which seems a bit cumbersome in places, but is turns out to be carefully designed to use exactly the same structure as will be used when introducing similar topics for topological spaces. The tour through metric [...]
I actually have the Second Edition,( must speak with a librarian or become one to add this and several other 'older' books )of this standard. Not unlike several other 'Intro' books, there is a rather large amount of pre-req knowledge required. If you are firmly rooted in your understanding of Set Theory and have had rigorous levels of experience with that nomenclature, only the first couple of readings will be a muddle.One of the best formal introductions to basic Topology. If you are studying a [...]
You caught me--technically, I haven't finished this book yet. I'll admit that I'm not quite ready to tackle topology itself. However, the introductory overview of set theory and set theoretical notation is invaluable if you're interested at all in foundational mathematics or philosophy of mathematics (be it Russell or Badiou). I had worn myself out on other books dedicated to the subject, and this book provides a clearer, more to-the-point account of basic set theory than any I've found (in a fi [...]
Good book but very dense for a non-mathematician like myself. Doesn't really help one develop an intuition of the subject.
Overall, great introductory book to topology. The pedagogy was excellent and the development of topics made sense in going from metric spaces (a notion that is generally more intuitive) to abstract topological spaces.In particular, it was great for self-study as Mendelson doesn't shy away from fully fleshing-out proofs and repeating relatively similar cases with some additional notes (e.g. when going from metric to topological spaces and proving several ideas there). The book itself can certainl [...]
I have the patience of a hummingbird. Therefore I`m well-equipped to appreciate any popularly pitched math textbook. An Introduction to Topology is a consistent, accessible, and charming compendium of a few higher branches of symbolic maneuvering. I dare you to read it.
Excellent resource for learning about topology, although I wasn't really prepared for several proofs and exercises so it was hard to wrap my mind around some concepts. Overall a good book.
I was expecting something more readable. This book seems very difficult for an introduction. Therefore, I am going to buy another books about this subject and then compare them with this one.
ugh. this be difficult.
Good, but very quick and straight to the point. You will find maybe a paragraph or two of intuition. This book helped me immensely in analysis.
Not well written in my view, but serves an an intro for use with diff. equations.
