This is a very nice discussion, and my only regret is that it was relegated to an appendix, rather than appearing as a section in the chapter on metric spaces. The second appendix states the Hahn-Mazurkiewicz theorem, and proves the easy direction. The third and longest of the appendices introduces Boolean algebras and rings and gives a full proof of the Stone representation theorem that any Boolean ring is isomorphic to the ring of open-closed subsets of some compact Hausdorff totally disconnected topological space.

Simmons writes very well, and this book is so clear that any reasonably good student should have no trouble reading it or most of it, anyway, some of Part III may be difficult on his or her own. Better still, I think most students would want to read it. There are good examples and motivational discussion.

I mentioned earlier that I am aware now of flaws in the book that I was unaware of in my youth. The primary and, frankly, inexcusable one is that Simmons never mentions the quotient topology at all. A related problem is that the book is relentlessly slanted towards analysis, so that the geometric aspects of the subject are generally ignored. There is not even a picture of a Mobius strip anywhere in the book. He states in a footnote that the quoted phrase is not uniformly defined in the literature.

Other issues are generally more minor and concern editorial decisions that I would have made differently. I think the chapter on connectedness should precede the one on separation, simply because, to my mind anyway, the subject of connectedness is more basic and essential to a beginning topology course than is, say, the concept of a completely regular space.

Frequently bought together

I also think that the section on locally compact Hausdorff spaces would have been better placed in the chapter on compactness, rather than the chapter on approximation. The book by Croom has a nice, manageable chapter on it, as does the topology text by Gemignani; the books by Munkres, Gamelin and Greene, and Singh all discuss it in even more depth.

So this is at least one way in which this text is showing its age, and may be a point against it for any instructor who wants to end the course with a look at this topic.

With regard to the second half of the book, I wish Simmons had discussed compact operators, at least on Hilbert spaces. This is a very nice discussion, and my only regret is that it was relegated to an appendix, rather than appearing as a section in the chapter on metric spaces.

Each of the functions mentioned above is defined for all real numbers x.

Kreyszig "Metric Spaces" by E. A function whose range consists of just one element is called a constant function. To understand the concepts of completeness and compactness of metric spaces.

There are good examples and motivational discussion. In general, this is possible only for functions of a very simple kind or for those which are sufficiently import. Sets and Functions The rules for the functions we have just mentioned are expressed by formulas.

Part I of the book covers basic point-set topology. They may be totally different from this year's version of the course!
