The third edition of this well known text continues to provide a solid foundation in mathematical analysis for undergraduate and first-year graduate students. The text begins with a discussion of the real number system as a complete ordered field. (Dedekind's construction is now treated in an appendix to Chapter I.) The topological background needed for the development of convergence, continuity, differentiation and integration is provided in Chapter 2. There is a new section on the gamma function, and many new and interesting exercises are included. This text is part of the Walter Rudin Student Series in Advanced Mathematics.… (more)

The copy of Principles of Mathematical Analysis by Walter Rudin that I own is interesting in one way; it states that it is the Indian Edition. Now I don’t know much about publishing, but the biggest issue for me was whether or not the book was in English since I don’t know any Indian languages. I mean, I suppose the paper making up the book is slightly thinner and perhaps it uses a different measure of size, but other than that it didn’t need to say that on the cover.

This mathematical book is much like any other mathematical textbook that I own and have read, it starts with the basics and builds upon those basics in a systematic manner. The book contains proofs of theorems and practice problems, making it a very good resource.

I have heard that this book is used as a textbook in classes, but I never had to take a class in Analysis. As I might have mentioned long ago, all of the books that I read are only for my own amusement. However, it would be neat if I also learned something along the way.

The book delivers in being amusing and informative. I suppose it might be less amusing if this was a book I was assigned, but that is beside the point. In being informative, the book contains eleven chapters and covers subjects from The Real and Complex Number Systems to Lebesgue Theory. Finally, the book has a bibliography, an index, and a list of the special symbols used in the book. ( )

Rudin is exact, specific, and direct. This is a harsh and austere text, but allows for very meditative readings. ( )

I used this for my Analysis course. It's very succinct so it's good for reviewing stuff. I can't imagine learning this on my own but that's just me.

The longest sustained rigorous thinking I've ever done on a subject. Analysis is beautiful. ( )

Only the first 4 chapters. The book is really good. If you can understand all the theorems and problems then your in excellent shape.
