Counterexamples in Analysis (Dover Books on Mathematics)

$15.95

The books "Counterexamples in Topology" by Steen and Seebach as well as "Counterexamples in Analysis" by Gelbaum and Olmstead have some that are surprising when you first see them.

When I was a graduate student in mathematics, "Counterexamples in Analysis" was my favorite book, and I had a lot of fun amazing my fellow students by quoting from it. Since then, however, I have swung around more to the viewpoint of Poincare and Feynman: "Logic sometimes makes monsters." From either viewpoint, however, the counterexamples are immensely entertaining.
