A Cp-Theory Problem Book: Topological and Function Spaces (Problem Books in Mathematics)by Vladimir Tkachuk
Synopses & Reviews
The theory of function spaces endowed with the topology of pointwise convergence, or Cp-theory, exists at the intersection of three important areas of mathematics: topological algebra, functional analysis, and general topology. Cp-theory has an important role in the classification and unification of heterogeneous results from each of these areas of research. Through over 500 carefully selected problems and exercises, this volume provides a self-contained introduction to Cp-theory and general topology. By systematically introducing each of the major topics in Cp-theory, this volume is designed to bring a dedicated reader from basic topological principles to the frontiers of modern research. Key features include: - A unique problem-based introduction to the theory of function spaces. - Detailed solutions to each of the presented problems and exercises. - A comprehensive bibliography reflecting the state-of-the-art in modern Cp-theory. - Numerous open problems and directions for further research. This volume can be used as a textbook for courses in both Cp-theory and general topology as well as a reference guide for specialists studying Cp-theory and related topics. This book also provides numerous topics for PhD specialization as well as a large variety of material suitable for graduate research.

This book is a self-contained introduction to the theory of function spaces endowed with the topology of pointwise convergence. It covers many popular topics in Cp-theory and brings the reader to the frontier of modern research. This volume contains 500 problems and exercises with complete solutions. It can be used as a textbook of both Cp-theory and topology. This book is the first in a four part sequence of problems books by the same author. Each book focuses on a different area of topology. Depending upon the commercial sucess of the first volume, the other three volumes may be contracted for the Problem Books in Mathematics series.
