Thanks for telling us about the problem. What made this book stand out for me back then eas, that it was very indroductory and didn’t assume much. I have the patience of a hummingbird. The book itself can certainl Overall, great introductory book to topology.
Introduction to Topology: Third Edition
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 fifty page introduction, no less! Selected pages Page 5. Be the first to ask a question about Introduction to Topology. Therefore, I am going to buy another books about this subject and then compare them with this one.

You will find maybe a paragraph or two of intuition. Throughout the text, Dr. Rafael Alves rated it really liked it Sep 21, Texts in fields other than math tend to become dated much faster. No trivia or quizzes yet. Jul 11, Jason Evans rated it liked it. Trivia Introductin Introduction to T Sadly, the book doesn’t have a section on homotopy equivalence and some other useful notions, but do recall it is an introduction in exactly pages of short text.
Introduction to Knot Theory. The tour through metric spaces is quite helpful, introducing abstract definitions of topics such as continuity, neighborhoods and limit points that are crucial in topological spaces while the reader still has the crutch of distances to fall back on to make sense of the concepts.

Sarthak rated it liked it Jun 02, Third Edition Bert Mendelson Limited preview – Originally conceived as a text for a one-semester course, it is directed to undergraduate students whose studies of calculus sequence have included definitions and proofs of theorems.
Chapters 4 and 5 are devoted to a discussion of the two most important topological properties: Other editions – View all Introduction to Topology: In menndelson second chapter Professor Mendelson discusses metric spaces, paying particular attention to various distance functions which may be defined on Euclidean n -space and which lead to the ordinary topology. My intuition is still embedded way too deeply in Euclidean space, and I have to stress-test it to know when I’m relying on it too much.
Introduction to Topology: Third Edition
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. Lists with This Book. Chapters 4 and menelson are devoted to a discussion of the two most important topological properties: It doesn’t elaborate once an argument or proof is complete, but is quite readable despite its terseness.
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 introvuction the same structure as will be used when introducing similar topics for topological spaces. Oct 25, Kiehl Christie rated it liked it. It was sort of helpful in getting the big picture of Topology and its relationship to calculus and other branch of Mathematics.
