I know a lot of people like Munkres, but I’ve never been one of them. If you’re interested in the subject, I recommend Allen Hatcher’s book, which is available for free on his webpage.
Not a users guide though. Marquarding, he wrote a book on this subject as well, Perspectives in Theoretical Stereochemistry Springer, I learned the basics from the first general half of Munkres, which I liked.
This is a really awesome book! This is a great book for those who want to get into the algebraic or geometric side of topology.
Dugundji J., Topology | Luis Alberto –
I’m not sure if there’s such a thing as “the” best general, I’m assuming topology textbook. Furthemore, the book is brilliantly written and covers almost everything. The first half is topooogy topology and the second is algebraic topology. See also the links below. And the pathological nature of the counterexamples is part of the intuition one builds, in the sense that it tells you just how bad the situation can be.
Post as a guest Name. Priniples of Topology, by F. I’ll that in mind. It’s a little wordier than Gaal, but has many excellent exercises. I would suggest the following options: You can download PDF for free, but you might need to obtain a dugundni to dugudnji the file from the author. Other than point-set topology which most of the comments below are addressingdifferential topology is also a nice entry-point.
Incidentally, I also like Bourbaki’s General Topology at least the first volume, which I’m more familiar with. He was also a long-time member of the editorial boards of two mathematics journals, the Pacific Journal of Mathematics and Topology and its Applications. See the essay on the History of Topology if you want to know where it all came from.
What is the difference between compact, paracompact, and pseudocompact? Moreover, the print quality is fantastic something I feel lacks in a lot of newer books.
Sign up using Email and Password. It is not as elementary as Munkres, but for a graduate student it would make a nice guide. In his own research, as well as producing highly cited works on problems of pure mathematics such dugunji the Tietze extension theorem Dugundji did important early work in cheminformatics.
TOPOLOGICAL GROUPS AND DUGUNDJI COMPACTA
Laures and Szymik write an excellent book on topology that incorporates category theory seamlessly. Best book for topology?
See also below for more relevant literature. The diagonal embedding theorem. Again, quoting Munkres, at the time he was writing the book he knew very little of Algebraic Topology, his speciality was General point-set topology. See this mathoverflow discussion.

See in particular p. Sign up using Facebook. The second part is a nice introduction to Algebraic Topology. Fixed point theoryby Andrzej Granas and James Dugundji”.
On graduate level non-introductory books are Kelley and Dugunji or Dugundji? At this last session with your instructor you can ask all sorts of questions relevant to the curriculum. Topology and Geometry a useful synopsis. Do you know what kind dugunsji “topology” you want to learn? But a lot of topology is about weird counterexamples.
Texts by Guillemin and Pollack, Milnor and Hirsch with that or similar titles are all very nice.
