Overview

This is an advanced text for the one- or two-semester course in analysis taught primarily to math, science, computer science, and electrical engineering majors at the junior, senior or graduate level. The basic techniques and theorems of analysis are presented in such a way that the intimate connections between its various branches are strongly emphasized. The traditionally separate subjects of 'real analysis' and 'complex analysis' are thus united in one volume. Some of the basic ideas from functional analysis are also included. This is the only book to take this unique approach. The third edition includes a new chapter on differentiation. Proofs of theorems presented in the book are concise and complete and many challenging exercises appear at the end of each chapter. The book is arranged so that each chapter builds upon the other, giving students a gradual understanding of the subject.

This text is part of the Walter Rudin Student Series in Advanced Mathematics.

I am a fan of Rudin's books. This one 'Real and Complex Analysis' has served as a standard textbook in the first graduate course in analysis at lots of universities in the US, and around the world. The book is divided in the two main parts, real and complex analysis. But in addition, it contains a good amount of functional and harmonic analysis; and a little operator theory. I loved it when I was a student, and since then I have taught from it many times. It has stood the test of time over almost three decades, and it is still my favorite. I have to admit that it is not the favorite of everyone I know. What I like is that it is concise, and that the material is systematically built up in a way that is both effective and exciting. Some of the exercises are notoriously hard, but I think that is good: It simply means that they serve as work-projects when the students use the book. And this approach probably is more pedagogical as well. After surviving some of the hard exercises in Rudin's Real and Complex, I think we learn things that stay with us for life; you will be 'marked for life!' Review by Palle Jorgensen, September 2004.

Truly one of the best in the field. The theory is almost complete; it is well presented, although the proofs sometimes seem 'too clever'. Exercises are excellent and challenging. Requires a high level of math maturity.
