This text is an introduction to functional analysis which requires readers to have a minimal background in linear algebra and real analysis at the first-year graduate level.
Prerequisite knowledge of general topology or Lebesgue integration is not required.
The book explains the principles and applications of functional analysis and explores the development of the basic properties of normed linear, inner product spaces and continuous linear operators defined in these spaces.
Though Lebesgue integral is not discussed, the book offers an in-depth knowledge on the numerous applications of the abstract results of functional analysis in differential and integral equations, Banach limits, harmonic analysis, summability and numerical integration.
Also covered in the book are versions of the spectral theorem for compact, symmetric operators and continuous, self adjoint operators.
