Schaum's Outline of Differential Equations by Richard Bronson Average Customer Review: Paperback (01 January, 1994) list price: $16.95 -- our price: $11.53 (price subject to change: see help) US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France Reviews (9)
Wonderfully written, straight-to-the-point book
Good, to-the-point, well-balanced. I would thoroughly recommend buying the Schaum's Easy Outline for DE in addition to this book, since I find the Easy Outline to be easier to pick up quickly on a first read. The Easy Outline is essentially the Outline, boiled down to the bare essentials and re-written to be easier to absorb quickly. The regular outline (this book) does a good job of filling in the gaps and providing more examples on top of the Easy Outilne. My copy (2nd edition, current) shows an original copyright date of 1973, with another in 1994 to reflect the Library of Congress title update (the title change was minute, and not worth repeating). I was surprised by the extreme similarity between some examples in the Ouline versus those in my course textbook (carrying a 2003 copyright in its 7th edition). It makes you wonder if this is the reference for the textbook writers! My only criticism of this book is that it is not a textbook. If it were, I wouldn't have to spend four times as much on another book which I use for not much more than the exercises. Oh, and the Outline HAS plenty of problems, both solved and not.

Elementary Real and Complex Analysis (Dover Books on Mathematics) by Georgi E. Shilov, Richard A. Silverman Average Customer Review: Paperback (01 February, 1996) list price: $19.95 -- our price: $13.57 (price subject to change: see help) US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France Reviews (6)
Getting started in math analysis
Possibly too simple However, for the more mathematically inclined readers, the problems are often too easy, and many things are proved that could be better left as exercises. For a more difficult Analysis book, I would reccomend Rudin.
A wonderful text -- Highly recommended! As far as the actual material presented, Dr. Shilov starts off with funtions of one real variable, then rather quickly generalizes to complex variables and N dimensional functions, so you'll quickly see metric theory and some topology.He does keep in mind this is intended for undergrads and first year grads though. Oh, another nice feature is the price!I'd recommend this book to any math enthusiast as a reference, or to someone going through an early analysis course. ... Read more Isbn: 0486689220 |

Very bad book
Agree -- one of the best; elegant; beautiful So, I waded in, and patiently made my way through every page of the first six chapters, working the problems along the way, at a pace of a few pages per day.Now that the journey is behind me, I can say that I appreciated this book. It compares favorably to some other texts I had tried reading, with less success. I realize that the author's approach is an old-style classical one, with a reliance on specific coordinate systems and transformations between coordinate systems.To work the problems requires a fair amount of paper and pencil work.Nonetheless, this approach worked well for me. On those occasions when my reading bogged down, inevitably there was a good reason. If I went back carefully, re-read and pondered, doodled on paper, and tried to visualize what Kreyszig was describing, it always worked!The light would soon go on, usually with a pleasurable sense of discovery. I went back to re-read certain sections of the book to refresh my memory, and realized how elegant the writing is.Crystal clear, right to the heart, and always trustworthy. Everything follows in a gentle persuasive way; there are no jarring leaps or gaps. Additionally, I had a nice sense of the different flavor brought to the field by the French geometers who made many of the key advances around the turn of the 19th-20th century. Finally, the summary of key results and equations at the end is very smart and helpful. Since finishing Kreysig, I did find it helpful to push on and try to grasp these same ideas from the standpoint of one-forms and the coordinate-free approach to tensors. But I'm not sorry I came at the subject this way first. I do recommend this book, and think that a beginner needs only a moderate amount of stamina and patience here. A postscript -- the book is also beautiful. I like that in a math book.

Fundamentals of Complex Analysis for Mathematics, Science And Engineering (2nd Edition) by E.B. Saff, A.D. Snider Average Customer Review: Hardcover (10 February, 1993) list price: $98.00 US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France Reviews (2)
Good Introductory Book This book definitely prepared me for tackling the dense, theoretical, and exceptional "Complex Analysis" by Ahlfors. I'd recommend it as an introductory book for anyone trying to get into the subject who is intimidated by Ahlfors, as well as for anyone who is only interested in the essential commonly-applied tools.

Don't see why its used in so many classrooms
Not So Hot.
An excellent introduction to Real Analysis "We decided to retain the format of the first edition, which gives full technical proofs at the end of each chapter but presents some idea of the main point in the text. This seems to have been well-received by the majority of readers... and we still believe that it is a sound pedagogical device for a course like this. It is not meant as a way to shun the proofs; on the contrary it is intended to give to views of the proof: on in the way working mathematicians think about it, (the trade secrets, so to speak), and the other in the way mathematicians write out formal proofs." Marsden Hoffman is written in a slightly more conversational tone than other rigorous introductions to analysis. However, as a math major at Stanford, I felt like this only made the text more readable. A side note: Though Marsden and Hoffman do make light of Cantor's quaint, 19th century definition of a set in their intro to set theory, they ultimately do so only to motivate the exposition of a formal, axiomatic view. ...

Are all Silverman's "translations" like this one?
Not so "introductory" Many of the "proofs," especially in the first few chapters, are simply vague outlines of proofs. New notation is introduced without formal definition, terminology is used sloppily (sometimes even inaccurately), and explanations are invariably terse. Before reading each chapter, I found it was necessary to first consult a more down-to-earth text. Sometimes I got the impression that the authors were more interested in showing off their brilliance than teaching me about analysis. If you want to learn analysis, I would recommend first working through Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis, then using this book as a source of challenging problems and interesting remarks.
Siverman spoiled Kolmogorv Not having the stature of the authors, the editor failed to understand that no one should try to mess with other's people book. ... Read more Isbn: 0486612260 |

Principia Mathematica by Alfred North Whitehead Average Customer Review: Hardcover (01 June, 1962) list price: $675.00 -- our price: $675.00 (price subject to change: see help) US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France Editorial Review Could it be true that Whitehead and Russell's Principia Mathematica is the most influential book written in the 20th century?Ask any mathematician or philosopher--or anyone who understands the impact these fields have had on modern thinking--and you'll get a short answer: yes. Their goal, to set mathematics on a firm logical foundation, was revolutionary, and their tools and rigor continue to influence modern professionals. Using Peano's symbolic logic, they formalized axioms and produced theorems (including the famous "1 + 1 = 2") in orderings, continuous functions, and other areas of mathematics. Although the Principia is far from comprehensive, Whitehead and Russell's method and program captivate their readers. The audacity to hope to formalize all of mathematics logically was inspirational and helped to give great boosts to math and logical philosophy. Though Gödel proved in 1931 that any such program is doomed to incompleteness, the tools found in and developed from the three volumes helped build the atomic bomb and the Internet. It may not be summer-vacation reading (for most), but Principia Mathematica will reward the dedicated student with a deeper understanding of how we got here. --Rob Lightner ... Read more Reviews (15)
