Providing an introduction to functional analysis, this text treats in detail its application to boundary-value problems and finite elements, and is distinguished by the fact that abstract concepts are motivated and illustrated wherever possible. It is intended for use by senior undergraduates and graduates in mathematics, the physical sciences and engineering, who may not have been exposed to the conventional prerequisites for a course in functional analysis, such as real analysis. Mature researchers wishing to learn the basic ideas of functional analysis will equally find this useful. Offers a good grounding in those aspects of functional analysis which are most relevant to a proper understanding and appreciation of the mathematical aspects of boundary-value problems and the finite element method.

This textbook is an introduction to functional analysis suited to final year undergraduates or beginning graduates. Its various applications of Hilbert spaces, including least squares approximation, inverse problems, and Tikhonov regularization, should appeal not only to mathematicians interested in applications, but also to researchers in related fields. Functional Analysis adopts a self-contained approach to Banach spaces and operator theory that covers the main topics, based upon the classical sequence and function spaces and their operators. It assumes only a minimum of knowledge in elementary linear algebra and real analysis; the latter is redone in the light of metric spaces. It contains more than a thousand worked examples and exercises, which make up the main body of the book.

This text is ideal for a basic course in functional analysis for senior undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students. John Giles provides insight into basic abstract analysis, which is now the contextual language of much modern mathematics. Although it is assumed that the student has familiarity with elementary real and complex analysis, linear algebra, and the analysis of metric spaces, the book does not assume a knowledge of integration theory or general topology. Its central theme concerns structural properties of normed linear spaces in general, especially associated with dual spaces and continuous linear operators on normed linear spaces. Giles illustrates the general theory with a great variety of example spaces.

Functional analysis is a powerful tool when applied to mathematical problems arising from physical situations. The present book provides, by careful selection of material, a collection of concepts and techniques essential for the modern practitioner. Emphasis is placed on the solution of equations (including nonlinear and partial differential equations). The assumed background is limited to elementary real variable theory and finite-dimensional vector spaces. Key Features - Provides an ideal transition between introductory math courses and advanced graduate study in applied mathematics, the physical sciences, or engineering. - Gives the reader a keen understanding of applied functional analysis, building progressively from simple background material to the deepest and most significant results. - Introduces each new topic with a clear, concise explanation. - Includes numerous examples linking fundamental principles with applications. - Solidifies the reader’s understanding with numerous end-of-chapter problems. · Provides an ideal transition between introductory math courses and advanced graduate study in applied mathematics, the physical sciences, or engineering. · Gives the reader a keen understanding of applied functional analysis, building progressively from simple background material to the deepest and most significant results. · Introduces each new topic with a clear, concise explanation. · Includes numerous examples linking fundamental principles with applications. · Solidifies the reader's understanding with numerous end-of-chapter problems.

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. The initial chapters develop the theory of infinite-dimensional normed spaces, in particular Hilbert spaces, after which the emphasis shifts to studying operators between such spaces. Functional analysis has applications to a vast range of areas of mathematics; the final chapters discuss the particularly important areas of integral and differential equations. Further highlights of the second edition include: a new chapter on the Hahn-Banach theorem and its applications to the theory of duality. This chapter also introduces the basic properties of projection operators on Banach spaces, and weak convergence of sequences in Banach spaces - topics that have applications to both linear and nonlinear functional analysis; extended coverage of the uniform boundedness theorem; plenty of exercises, with solutions provided at the back of the book.
