5.0 out of 5 stars Apostol's superb trilogy of analysis, 9 Feb 2013

This review is from: Calculus: Multi-variable Calculus and Linear Algebra, with Applications to Differential Equations and Probability v. 2 (Hardcover)
The two volumes of Apostol's "Calculus" must be linked to his "Mathematical Analysis".

I consider "Mathematical Analysis" as the third volume, complement to Apostol's famous two-volume "Calculus", forming his trilogy of analysis.

Apostol's clarity and precision of exposition are simply unbeatable and his trilogy is to stand high in the collection of anyone interested in mathematics.

To my knowledge, there's only one comparable SUM in analysis, i.e. Edouard Goursat's three-volume "A course in Mathematical Analysis", older (1902), deeper and therefore less easy to absorb, but definitely a brilliant, lucid and fundamental classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Master of the Marters, 27 Jun 2001
By 
Pedro (Porto, Portugal) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Calculus: Multi-variable Calculus and Linear Algebra, with Applications to Differential Equations and Probability v. 2 (Hardcover)
This book is often said to be great. It is far better than great. This is the best book for good students in an undergraduate course. This book, although softly readable has beautiful chalenging exercises. I hardly recommend buying Vector Calculus from Marsden for a first lecture and after studying that book go trough Apostol. I haven't ever seen a book with such a variety of exercises. It is also great for havig as one more text book. Buy it.
