  • Hoo [May 6, 2016 - 3:27 PM]: Sometimes I'll find a book at my uni library and just have to own a copy, even if I already have all of the proofs elsewhere. Trench's "Advanced Calculus" is nice too. Compactness arguments in intro real analysis. Very cool. Thats in Rudin, too.
  • Hoo [May 6, 2016 - 3:25 PM]: I feel you. I bought way more analysis books than I could read/master. But I love details like typesets and paper, the art of the book. It is nice to see how differently the subject can be approached in terms of style and even axioms.
  • Hoo [May 6, 2016 - 2:19 PM]: Rudin's book has style. Math really makes great style possible in a new way. Exact definitions, a system of theorems nested in theorems. It's an art. Another great book is Analysis By Its History. Have you seen that?
  • Hoo [May 6, 2016 - 2:26 AM]: I just bought Edmund Landau's classic book on calculus (actually real analysis, because it's in classic "telegram" style. Definition. Theorem. Proof. For the same reason I like Turing machines, I like old fashioned real analysis on the line.
  • Hoo [May 6, 2016 - 2:23 AM]: Awesome! Q~uestion. It's a beautiful book.
