1. “General Topology” by J L Kelly

“General Topology” Book Review: This book develops basic metric topological methods and algebraic needs. It introduces the vector character of Euclidean n-space and familiar facts from linear algebra. It also covers concepts relevant to convex body theory and the affine character of the space. The analogy between linear and affine concepts are also explained. It covers methods on how to verify intuitive relations analytically in space of general dimensions. Also contains a collection of standard fundamental theorems.

2. “Introduction to General Topology” by K D Joshi
3. “Topology” by James R Munkres

“Topology” Book Review: This book provides separate, in-depth coverage of both general topology and algebraic topology. It covers topics like set theory and logic, topological spaces and continuous functions. Connectedness and Compactness, countability and separation axioms are also discussed. The Tychonoff theorem, Metrization theorems and paracompactness, complete metric spaces and function spaces are covered. Algebraic topology concepts such as the fundamental group, separation theorems, Seifert-van Kampen theorem are discussed.

4. “Topology” by J Dugundji
6. “Topology” by K P Gupta
7. “Topology: A Geometric Approach” by M Ganesh

“Topology: A Geometric Approach” Book Review: This book deals with the metric spaces which include normed linear spaces and inner product spaces. This book is written in a student-friendly manner. This book is helpful for postgraduate level students. Many worked out examples and problems have been included in this book. Concepts are illustrated using figures for enhancing understanding. Certain additional topics are given in appendices at the end of each chapter for more information.

8. “Topology of Metric Spaces” by S Kumaresan

“Topology of Metric Spaces” Book Review: The book covers the metric space topology emphasising useful concepts related to concrete spaces.
