Homework Help: Counter examples in Analysis

  1. Sep 19, 2013 #1
    I'm not sure this is the correct section, but I have a problem. I'm a physics undergrad self-studying analysis from baby rudin, finishing Chaper 2. I seem to be able to work all the exercises and sometimes find other proofs to given theorems, but I have a problem in finding counter-examples in certain exercises. How should I study? What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance :)

    Many counterexamples are quite simple ... start from the proposed rule, and consider simple situations which might go wrong.

    But even then you will find that ingenuity is required.
