*Key Features include:
*More than 300 fully rigorous proofs, specially tailored to the presentation
*As many as 150 examples, and several interesting counterexamples that demonstrate the frontiers of an important theorem
*Over 300 problems, many with hints, and including 20 pages of additional problems for the second edition
*Both problems and examples underscore further auxiliary results and extensions of the main theory; challenging the reader to prove the principal theorems anew
*This self-contained work is an excellent text for the classroom as well as a self-study resource for researchers. Prerequisites include an introduction to analysis and to functions of a complex variable, which most first-year graduate students in mathematics, engineering, or another formal science have already acquired. Measure theory and integration theory are required only for the last section of the final chapter.
*Review of the first edition:
*"This is a rigorous, logically well-organized textbook presenting basic principles and elementary theory of operators. It is written with great care, gradually increasing in complexity. The forte features of the book are the teaching style, illuminating explanation of numerous delicate points, and detailed presentation of topics. Hence, the book can be warmly recommended to a first work for the study of operator theory . . . it is an admirable work for a modern introduction in operator theory." —Zentralblatt MATH
Published nearly forty years after the first edition, this long-awaited Second Edition also:Studies the Fourier transform of functions in the spaces L1, L2, and Lp, 1 p Shows the Hilbert transform to be a bounded operator on L2, as an application of the L2 theory of the Fourier transform in the one-dimensional case Covers fractional integration and some topics related to mean oscillation properties of functions, such as the classes of Hölder continuous functions and the space of functions of bounded mean oscillation Derives a subrepresentation formula, which in higher dimensions plays a role roughly similar to the one played by the fundamental theorem of calculus in one dimension Extends the subrepresentation formula derived for smooth functions to functions with a weak gradient Applies the norm estimates derived for fractional integral operators to obtain local and global first-order Poincaré–Sobolev inequalities, including endpoint cases Proves the existence of a tangent plane to the graph of a Lipschitz function of several variables Includes many new exercises not present in the first edition
This widely used and highly respected text for upper-division undergraduate and first-year graduate students of mathematics, statistics, probability, or engineering is revised for a new generation of students and instructors. The book also serves as a handy reference for professional mathematicians.
