About this Textbook

“The theory is systematically developed by the axiomatic method that has, since von Neumann, dominated the general approach to linear functional analysis and that achieves here a high degree of lucidity and clarity. The presentation is never awkward or dry, as it sometimes is in other “modern” textbooks; it is as unconventional as one has come to expect from the author. The book contains about 350 well placed and instructive problems, which cover a considerable part of the subject. All in all this is an excellent work, of equally high value for both student and teacher.” Zentralblatt für Mathematik

Reviews

“This is a classic but still useful introduction to modern linear algebra. It is primarily about linear transformations … . It’s also extremely well-written and logical, with short and elegant proofs. … The exercises are very good, and are a mixture of proof questions and concrete examples. The book ends with a few applications to analysis … and a brief summary of what is needed to extend this theory to Hilbert spaces.” (Allen Stenger, MAA Reviews, maa.org, May, 2016)
