Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Functional analysis arose from traditional topics of calculus and integral and differential equations. This accessible text by an internationally renowned teacher and author starts with problems in numerical analysis and shows how they lead naturally to the concepts of functional analysis.  
Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this book provides coherent explanations for complex concepts. Topics include Banach and Hilbert spaces, contraction mappings and other criteria for convergence, differentiation and integration in Banach spaces, the Kantorovich test for convergence of an iteration, and Rall's ideas of polynomial and quadratic operators. Numerous examples appear throughout the text. 
Dover (2010) unabridged republication of the edition published by Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1978.

Book News Annotation:

Sawyer (1911-2008) introduces the theorems of classical analysis, reviews their original role in the historical setting, and explains their application in modern analysis. Intended for math majors familiar with linear algebra, the textbook discusses the Cauchy test for convergence of a sequence, Banach spaces, Minkowski spaces, linear operators, the Newton-Raphson method, the Taylor series, and Hilbert space. This volume is an unabridged reprint of the work originally published in 1978 by Oxford University Press. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
