Introduction to Topology: Third Edition

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 mendelspn of math books. Concepts of Modern Mathematics. Jun 28, Simona Vesela rated it it was amazing Shelves: Chapters 4 and 5 are devoted to a discussion of the two most important topological properties: Return to Book Page.

Oct 25, Kiehl Christie rated it liked it. Dover editions are nearly always a bargain, and this one is no exception. Some of the terminology used is slightly non-standard, or out-of-date.

I was expecting something more readable. The author begins with an informal discussion of set theory in Chapter 1, reserving coverage of countability for Chapter 5, where it appears in the context of compactness. Inntroduction 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.


If you are studying any of the modern flashback theories of the universe, the relationship between Hilbert Space and Euclidean inclusion along convergences is a must! Trivia About Introduction to T Throughout the text, Dr.

Doesn’t really help one develop an intuition of the subject. Jul 11, Jason Evans rated it liked it. One thing I would have appreciated, though, is a few more examples of non-Euclidean topological spaces that I introducgion have used as exercises to poke at the definitions and proofs.

The book starts out with a very compact review of set theory no pun intended. It was sort of helpful in getting the big picture of Topology and its relationship to calculus and other branch of Mathematics.

Mendelson, a former Professor of Mathematics at Smith College, has included many challenging and stimulating exercises to help students develop a solid grasp of the material presented.

The book’s principal lntroduction is to provide a simple, thorough survey of elementary topics in the study of collections of objects, or sets, that possess a mathematical structure.

The theorems never change, but the wording does, slowly, and this is visible when Mendelson uses terms like identification topology rather than quotient space. Good book but very dense for a non-mathematician like myself. Unabridged Dover republication of the edition published by Allyn and Bacon, Mnedelson.
