I\’ve been reading a bit of Introductory Functional Analysis with Applications, but with the knowledge that it\’d mostly be over my head until I went back and did some Real Analysis. Today the first two analysis books arrived, Introduction to Topology and Introductory Real Analysis. I expect the Topology book will be simple, but it will probably also fill in a few blanks for me. Also, these books are smaller than Functional Analysis, so I\’m more likely to carry them around with me, too.
I\’ll probably get into Topology tonight.
I\’m also waiting on delivery of Basic Category Theory for Computer Scientists, which should lead nicely into Types and Programming Languages by the same author. As much as I may enjoy math, my primary motivation here is being a better programmer, so being able to see direct applications is nice.
