Toplogy book for study of dynamical systems

  1. Oct 17, 2014 #1
    need a good book on topology and metric spaces! I'm an undergrad taking a course on non-linear dynamical systems, just realising my pre-knowledge is slightly under the requirement since I have not taken any course on topology. I only know basic real analysis and some complex analysis.
    so any good introduction on topology would be good. In particular, I prefer a lot of diagrams which can help with visaulising the concepts. many thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Well, Munkres Topology is a possibility, but I'm not sure it would be quite what you want. I'm a very visual thinker, but I'm pretty good at generating my own visuals, so I don't always bother to track down the best book for that, especially if it's kind of introductory level stuff. You might want to try youtube. I'm too lazy to track it down, but I think I came across some good basic topology videos. I was only interested in a certain topic, since I already know the subject, so I only saw a couple, myself, but I think there are more out there.
