## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello!

I am currently searching for some alternative books I can use for the analysis course starting on this Fall Semester. The course will cover the compactness, contraction principles, approximation theory, and some applications like special functions and Fourier series. The required textbook is Rudin-PMA, but I do not like that book. Could you recommend some alternative books that cover those topics?

The sample syllabus of the course (MATH 522) is here:
