Prerequisites of adult rudin?

  1. Dec 2, 2013 #1
    I've learned some complex analysis from the book written by James Brown and Ruel Churchill, but I forget almost everything about complex analysis.
    Would there be any problem if I study adult rudin directly?

    Are you comfortable with metric spaces and various notions of convergence & continuity (pointwise, uniform, equicontinuous, etc)?

    That being said, Rudin is (imo) an awful choice and you should get another book.
