Hey, I found a copy of this book at my school library and I've been looking through it; I've been brought under the impression that this book is more geared towards a physicists audience versus being a "pure math" book. But other than the final chapter on mechanics, I've so far thought that the book is as math as anything else. In fact, it's very descriptive and comprehensive and eludes to things other math books at this level maybe won't
does anyone else think that this book is more suitable for a physicist? I don't get how you can call rudin's "principle of mathematics" a pure math book, and this a physicists' math book when this is far more mathematically dense than rudin's book

thanks, but I'm looking for a math-math book, but I think so far this loomis book has been really great; so far, much better than rudin's book or anything like that. Other than Dieudonne's "Foundations of mathematical analysis", I think this had been my favourite analysis book so far
