Operator Theory: A Comprehensive Course in Analysis, Part 4 by Barry Simon

By Barry Simon

A entire path in research through Poincare Prize winner Barry Simon is a five-volume set that could function a graduate-level research textbook with loads of extra bonus details, together with hundreds and hundreds of difficulties and various notes that reach the textual content and supply vital old history. intensity and breadth of exposition make this set a invaluable reference resource for the majority parts of classical research. half four makes a speciality of operator conception, in particular on a Hilbert house. principal themes are the spectral theorem, the speculation of hint classification and Fredholm determinants, and the learn of unbounded self-adjoint operators. there's additionally an advent to the idea of orthogonal polynomials and an extended bankruptcy on Banach algebras, together with the commutative and non-commutative Gel'fand-Naimark theorems and Fourier research on common in the neighborhood compact abelian teams.

Important later developments are due to E. Bezout (1730–83) [57], A. Vandermonde (1735–96) [711], P. S. -L. Lagrange (1736–1827) [419], J. F. C. Gauss (1777–1855) [224] (who introduced the term “determinant” in a slightly different context), A. Cauchy (1789– 1857) (who used it in its present context [109]), and a long series of papers spanning fifteen years by C. Jacobi (1804–51) [339, 340, 341, 342, 343, 344]. It was put into the context of matrix theory by A. Cayley [111]. The Cayley–Hamilton theorem is named after 1853 work of Hamilton [287] and 1858 work of Cayley [111].
