V.- Commented Bibliography

Other books on Real Analysis:

  • [1] Measure and Integration, Sterling K. Berberian.
    • I find this book very well written and at times not as overwhelming as the “real analysis bibles” of a thousand pages, but at the same time is super complete and mega well written. I used it when I studied the topic.
  • [2] Basic Real Analysis, Anthony W. Knapp
    • Basic stuff, but he writes really well and from time to time covers topics that other books do not have (even the bibles). Also, it has a continuation Advanced Real Analysis, which is great as well.
  • [3] Real and Functional Analysis, Serge Lang.
    • Serge Lang. Enough said.
