The book is packed with revealing illustrations and motivations. Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics Hardcover: See all 6 reviews. But, is this the right level of rigour? I think you’ll notice most of Hatcher’s arguments would pass this test,even if it would probably take a considerable amount of spade work to make them completely rigorous in the same sense as a real analysis or algebra proof.

Of course every mathematician should verify a claim until he feels comfortable that if necessary, he could produce the real argument down to the atomic details.

Of course, as it’s stated, this isn’t an exact science. Just by looking at the contents one can see this, as there are sections titled: Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. So why am I rating this 5 stars? There is indeed much that is wise in this quote and it really gives what I think is an excellent “rule of thumb” for determining when a “proof” in mathematics has crossed the line and really become non-rigorously vague by 21st century mathematical standards to the point is really proves nothing: If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?


See and discover other items: It was later said by Levy that Janich told him that this particular passage was inspired by Janich’s concerns that German mathematical academia and textbooks in particular were beginning to become far too axiomatic and anti-visual and that this was hurting the clarity of presentations to students.

Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. Perhaps the single best accolade I can give the book is that it gives one inspiration and motivation to explore in greater detail mathematical objects discussed. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. I almost always just tune out when people offer me their intuitions, and develop my own, for this reason.

Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. I feel uncomfortable with the proofs Hatcher gives. The author does a brilliant job of teaching the reader the essential concepts of point set topology, and the book is very fun to read. It is often said against intuitive, spatial argumentation that it is not really argumentation,but just so much gesticulation-just ‘handwaving’. Topology Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics by K.

For me, this level of “rigor” required lies somewhere between explicitly writing out everything in bare bones set theoretic terms, and the level of detail presented in a graduate analysis text such as Rudin. Tpoology course your right.

This book would make an excellent supplement to a more formal textbook such as Munkres, but is not a substitute for it. But I think Janich has given some quite good advice to the novice here.

The down side of this approach is that it completely disconnects the subject from it’s geometric roots and it becomes simply another branch of algebra whose roots are utterly mysterious.

Third Edition Dover Books on Mathematics. The closest anyone’s ever come to pulling it off to me is Rotman.

Janicj believe that experienced mathematicians, who perhaps learned point-set topology from books such as those of Munkres, Kelley, or Bredon or even an analysis book such as Roydenappreciate how this book focuses on motivating the concepts, explaining how the various objects are used elsewhere in mathematics – for that purpose this is one of the finest books I have seen.

Thus the language that the author employs is informal, and a listing of the best discussions in the book would really entail a listing of every one janicn the book. Or, closer to topology, I could say that collapsing the boundary of a closed disk to a point ‘clearly’ makes a sphere.

The book also covers both point-set topology topological spaces, compactness, connectedness, separation axioms, completeness, metric topology, TVS, quotient topology, countability, metrization, etc. Post as a guest Name.
