About the Authors
  • This work has arisen from lecture courses given by the authors on important topics within functional analysis. The authors, who are all leading researchers, give introductions to their subjects at a level ideal for beginning graduate students, and others interested in the subject. The collection has been carefully edited so as to form a coherent and accessible introduction to current research topics. The first chapter by Professor Dales introduces the general theory of Banach algebras, which serves as a background to the remaining material. Dr Willis then studies a centrally important Banach algebra, the group algebra of a locally compact group. The remaining chapters are devoted to Banach algebras of operators on Banach spaces: Professor Eschmeier gives all the background for the exciting topic of invariant subspaces of operators, and discusses some key open problems; Dr Laursen and Professor Aiena discuss local spectral theory for operators, leading into Fredholm theory.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'In view of the book's genesis, it is clear that it is quite heterogeneous … This heterogeneity, however, turns out to be one of the volume's strengths: it presents five concise introductions to important parts of functional analysis, each of which conveys its author's outlook on the field … It will certainly be quite useful for new graduate students as well as for non-specialists in the areas covered who want to get a quick overview before delving into dautingly thick treatises as the one by [H. G. Dales ['Banach algebras and automatic continuity', Lond. Math. Soc. Monographs. New Series 24 (2000; Zbl 981.46043)] (on Banach algebras) or K. B. Laursen and M. M. Neumann …'. Zentralblatt MATH
