This textbook is an introduction to the theory of Hilbert space and its applications.
Beautiful account of Hilbert space theory and its typical applications, for the edification of serious undergraduates. Sixteen chapters (exercises at the end of each), of which the first eight treat theoretical fundamentals, and the remainder applications to Sturm-Liouville theory and to some less-immediately physical topics. The author's invariable intention is not to amaze but to instruct, and he does so in a way which is never allowed to become dry or lifeless. Paper ed. $21.95. (NW) Annotation c.
