In summary, for classical mathematics textbooks for advanced and undergraduate level, a mathematician should possess Courant and Hilbert's "Methods of Mathematical Physics," Differential and Integral Calculus volumes 1 and 2 by Richard Courant, and Lang's series of volumes in different fields of math and of different levels. Additionally, books by Rudin are also recommended and can be found on the website AbeBooks. These include Lang's "Differential and Integral Calculus" for about $15 each and Rudin's books on mathematical analysis and real and complex analysis.

Notice the 2 volume set offered for $32, about half way down the page, formerly belonging to, and signed by, my friend the famous mathematician and author Ray Kunze, (now deceased).

I offer this as evidence that a mathematician would want these books.

Classical mathematics refers to the traditional branch of mathematics that includes topics such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. It is based on the principles and methods developed by ancient Greek mathematicians and has been refined and expanded upon by mathematicians throughout history.

Classical mathematics textbooks typically focus on providing a rigorous and logical approach to solving mathematical problems. They often include clear explanations, step-by-step examples, and exercises for practice. They also tend to cover a wide range of topics and build upon previously learned concepts.

Yes, classical mathematics textbooks are still relevant and widely used in modern education. The principles and methods taught in these textbooks are the foundation for many advanced mathematical concepts and are essential for understanding and solving real-world problems in fields such as science, engineering, and finance.

Yes, classical mathematics textbooks can be used for self-study. However, it is important to have a strong foundation in basic mathematical concepts before attempting to learn more advanced topics on your own. It is also helpful to have access to resources such as online tutorials or a tutor for clarification and guidance.

When choosing a classical mathematics textbook, consider your current level of mathematical knowledge, the topics you want to learn, and your learning style. It can also be helpful to read reviews and compare different textbooks to find one that aligns with your goals and preferences.
