Basic Operator Theory
Basic Operator Theory provides an introduction to functional analysis with an emphasis on the theory of linear operators and its application to differential and integral equations, approximation theory, and numerical analysis. A textbook designed for senior undergraduate and graduate students, Basic Operator Theory begins with the geometry of Hilbert space and proceeds to the spectral theory for compact self-adjoint operators with a wide range of applications. Part of the volume is devoted to Banach spaces and operators acting on these spaces.
Presented as a natural continuation of linear algebra, Basic Operator Theory provides a firm foundation in operator theory, an essential part of mathematical training for students of mathematics, engineering, and other technical sciences.
