About the Authors
  • This text is ideal for a basic course in functional analysis for senior undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students. John Giles provides insight into basic abstract analysis, which is now the contextual language of much modern mathematics. Although it is assumed that the student has familiarity with elementary real and complex analysis, linear algebra, and the analysis of metric spaces, the book does not assume a knowledge of integration theory or general topology. Its central theme concerns structural properties of normed linear spaces in general, especially associated with dual spaces and continuous linear operators on normed linear spaces. Giles illustrates the general theory with a great variety of example spaces.

    • Can be treated as a sequel to Giles' previous book
    • Author has many years teaching experience in this area
    • Text requires very little background knowledge of the reader
