General Topology by Stephen Willard Among the best available reference introductions to general topology, this volume is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students. Includes historical notes and over 340 detailed exercises. 1970 edition. Includes 27 figures.
Introduction to Topology: Second Edition by Theodore W. Gamelin, Robert Everist Greene This text explains nontrivial applications of metric space topology to analysis. Covers metric space, point-set topology, and algebraic topology. Includes exercises, selected answers, and 51 illustrations. 1983 edition.
Topology by John G. Hocking, Gail S. Young Superb one-year course in classical topology. Topological spaces and functions, point-set topology, much more. Examples and problems. Bibliography. Index.
Topology and Geometry for Physicists by Charles Nash, Siddhartha Sen Written by physicists for physics students, this text assumes no detailed background in topology or geometry. Topics include differential forms, homotopy, homology, cohomology, fiber bundles, connection and covariant derivatives, and Morse theory. 1983 edition.
The Laplace Transform by David V. Widder This volume focuses on the Laplace and Stieltjes transforms, offering a highly theoretical treatment. Topics include fundamental formulas, the moment problem, monotonic functions, and Tauberian theorems. 1941 edition.
Complex Analysis with Applications by Richard A. Silverman The basics of what every scientist and engineer should know, from complex numbers, limits in the complex plane, and complex functions to Cauchy's theory, power series, and applications of residues. 1974 edition.
Topology of 3-Manifolds and Related Topics by M.K. Fort, Jr., Daniel Silver Summaries and full reports from a 1961 conference discuss decompositions and subsets of 3-space; n-manifolds; knot theory; the Poincaré conjecture; and periodic maps and isotopies. Familiarity with algebraic topology required. 1962 edition.
Foundations of Modern Analysis by Avner Friedman Measure and integration, metric spaces, the elements of functional analysis in Banach spaces, and spectral theory in Hilbert spaces — all in a single study. Detailed analyses. Problems. Bibliography. Index.
Undergraduate Topology by Robert H. Kasriel This introductory treatment is essentially self-contained and features explanations and proofs that relate to every practical aspect of point set topology. Hundreds of exercises appear throughout the text. 1971 edition.
Point Set Topology by Steven A. Gaal Suitable for a complete course in topology, this text also functions as a self-contained treatment for independent study. Additional enrichment materials make it equally valuable as a reference. 1964 edition.
Introduction to Topology: Third Edition by Bert Mendelson Concise undergraduate introduction to fundamentals of topology — clearly and engagingly written, and filled with stimulating, imaginative exercises. Topics include set theory, metric and topological spaces, connectedness, and compactness. 1975 edition.
Appropriate for both students and professionals, this volume starts with the first principles of topology and advances to general analysis. Three levels of examples and problems, ordered and numbered by degree of difficulty, illustrate important concepts. A 40-page appendix, featuring tables of theorems and counter examples, provides a valuable reference. From explorations of topological space, convergence, and separation axioms, the text proceeds to considerations of sup and weak topologies, products and quotients, compactness and compactification, and complete semimetric space. The concluding chapters explore metrization, topological groups, and function spaces. Each subject area is supplemented with examples, problems, and exercises that progress to increasingly rigorous levels. All examples and problems are classified as essential, optional, and advanced.
