This book Metric Space has been written for the students of various universities. In the earlier chapters, proof are given in considerable detail, as our subject unfolds through the successive chapters and the reader acquires experience in following abstract mathematical arguments, the proof become briefer and minor details are more and more left for the reader to fill in for himself. It is a basic principle in the study of mathematics, and one too seldom emphasised that a proof is not really understood until the stage is reached at which one can grasp it is a whole and see it as a single idea. In achieving this end much more is necessary than merely following the individual steps in the reasoning. Contents: Basic Concept of Set, Metric Space, Compactness.
