Real and functional analysis. 3. ed. (English) Zbl 0831.46001
Graduate Texts in Mathematics. 142. New York: Springer-Verlag. xiv, 580 p. (1993).
This classic textbook [formerly named “Analysis. II” (1969; Zbl 0176.005) and “Real Analysis” (1984; Zbl 0502.46003)] now appears in a 3rd edition, whose new title reflects the contents best. Since the former editions are well known, let us only cite the paragraph with the description of the changes in the author’s preface:
“In this third edition, I have reorganized the book by covering integration before functional analysis. Such a rearrangement fits the way courses are taught in all the places I know of. I have added a number of examples and exercises, as well as some material about integration on the real line (e.g. on Dirac sequence approximation and on Fourier analysis), and some material on functional analysis (e.g. the theory of the Gelfand transform in Chapter XVI). These upgrade previous exercises to sections in the text.
In my mind, this is still the best textbook on the market”.
