Problems and Theorems in Classical Set Theory (Problem Books in Mathematics)by Peter Komjath
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This volume contains a variety of problems from classical set theory and represents the first comprehensive collection of such problems. Many of these problems are also related to other fields of mathematics, including algebra, combinatorics, topology and real analysis. Rather than using drill exercises, most problems are challenging and require work, wit, and inspiration. They vary in difficulty, and are organized in such a way that earlier problems help in the solution of later ones. For many of the problems, the authors also trace the history of the problems and then provide proper reference at the end of the solution.
Synopsis:This is the first comprehensive collection of problems in set theory. It contains well chosen sequences of exercises. Most of the problems are challenging and require work, wit, and inspiration. The book is destined to become a classic.
