Highly regarded for its exceptional clarity, imaginative and instructive exercises, and fine writing style, this concise book offers an ideal. Introduction to Topology has ratings and 15 reviews. Steve said: I’m not yet enough of an expert on topology to give this a truly informed review; I. This book is meant to cover a basic topology course for undergraduates and I found it very approachable even with my limited background in pure math.

If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. One thing I would have appreciated, though, is a few more examples of non-Euclidean topological spaces that I could have used as exercises to poke at the definitions and proofs.

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.

Andrew Bartels rated it liked it Dec 14, Good, but very quick and straight to the point. The topology content covered is entirely point-set topology, covering the basics of openness, compactness, and connectedness, without moving any deeper. The tour through metric 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 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. Courier Corporation- Mathematics – pages.
