Which Universities Use Apostol's Mathematical Analysis Text?

  1. Mar 21, 2012 #1
    Which universities or instructors---anywhere in the world and particularly in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, or India---use or have used Tom M. Apostol's landmark textbook on Mathematical Analysis? Are there any video lectures from a course based on the text available on the Internet? Any other kind of support for the text?

    Last but not least, I would like to have the same information on Apostol's two-volume calculus text.

    IISC Bangalore in India uses Apostol's text, but no online learning material is available from them.
    you can try Khanacademy or MIT OCW to solve the problems.

    MIT and Caltech use Apostol's Calculus. MIT OCW has pages for 18.014 and 18.024, which cover Calculus, Volume 1 and Calculus, Volume 2.

    I think that most school use Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis instead of Apostol's Mathematical Analysis for undergraduate analysis courses. I believe they choose Rudin because it's more compact than Apostol - Apostol's book even copies some sections from his Calculus texts.

    Almost sure the video lectures associated with http://unow.nottingham.ac.uk/resources/resource.aspx?hid=c6c045f6-286d-6b9f-b96c-36a998632fc3 [Broken] webpage are based off of Apostol's analysis, which are also on youtube (think that's them).
