About the Authors
  • Non-Archimedean functional analysis, where alternative but equally valid number systems such as p-adic numbers are fundamental, is a fast-growing discipline widely used not just within pure mathematics, but also applied in other sciences, including physics, biology and chemistry. This book is the first to provide a comprehensive treatment of non-Archimedean locally convex spaces. The authors provide a clear exposition of the basic theory, together with complete proofs and new results from the latest research. A guide to the many illustrative examples provided, end-of-chapter notes and glossary of terms all make this book easily accessible to beginners at the graduate level, as well as specialists from a variety of disciplines.

    • The first book to offer complete coverage of non-Archimedean local convexity
    • Readily accessible to graduate students and interested researchers from various disciplines
    • Assumes only a basic background in linear algebra, analysis and topology

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book under review is, in my opinion, the best of the existing books on the theory of non-Archimedean locally convex spaces. It contains most of the known results which are published in the area. The book is self-contained and only basic knowledge of linear algebra, analysis and topology are needed to read it. It could be used by graduate students as well as by researchers in mathematical analysis and in other areas.' Mathematical Reviews
