The Math Books I Found Most Helpful

A Listmania! list by Brian Mckenzie (Klamath Falls, Oregon)
(REAL NAME)

Lebesgue Integration On Euclidean Space, Revised Edition (Jones and Bartlett Books in Mathematics)
1.  Lebesgue Integration On Euclidean Space, Revised Edition (Jones and Bartlett Books in Mathematics) by Frank Jones
The list author says:
  "A gentle introduction to elements of Lebesgue measure and integration with an applied flavor (I might have read that somewhere else, but I agree)."

Real Analysis, 3rd Edition
4.  Real Analysis, 3rd Edition by H. L. Royden
The list author says:
  "Beautifully written. I am working through this book now and each time I put it down I become more convinced that it is worth more than it's weight in gold. Much more theoretical than Jones' book. I feel that the two complement each other well."

Vector Calculus
5.  Vector Calculus by Jerrold E. Marsden
The list author says:
  "A good place to start for vector calculus. The author assumes you have taken the standard intro to integral and differential Calculus sequence, but not much else. You work your way through the higher dimensional analogues of the fundamental theorems of Calculus and at the end the author gives you a taste of differential forms."
