Linear and Nonlinear Functional Analysis with Applications
This book has pedagogical appeal because it features self-contained and complete proofs of most of the theorems, some of which are not always easy to locate in the literature or are difficult to reconstitute. It also offers 401 problems and 52 figures, plus historical notes and many original references that provide an idea of the genesis of the important results, and it covers most of the core topics from functional analysis.
Audience: Linear and Nonlinear Functional Analysis with Applications is intended for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers and is ideal for teaching or self-study.
