Linear Functional Analysis Paperback
by Bryan P. (Department of Mathematics, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh) Rynne, Martin A. Youngson
Part of the Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series series
This introduction to the ideas and methods of linear functional analysis shows how familiar and useful concepts from finite-dimensional linear algebra can be extended or generalized to infinite-dimensional spaces.
Aimed at advanced undergraduates in mathematics and physics, the book assumes a standard background of linear algebra, real analysis (including the theory of metric spaces), and Lebesgue integration, although an introductory chapter summarizes the requisite material.
A highlight of the second edition is a new chapter on the Hahn-Banach theorem and its applications to the theory of duality.
