Overview

Functional Analysis has become one of the main branches in Chinese mathematics. Many outstanding contributions and results have been achieved over the past sixty years.
This authoritative collection is complementary to Western studies in this field, and seeks to summarise and introduce the historical progress of the development of Functional Analysis in China from the 1940s to the present. A broad range of topics is covered, such as nonlinear functional analysis, linear operator theory, theory of operator algebras, applications including the solvability of some partial differential equations, and special spaces that contain Banach spaces and topological vector spaces. Some of these papers have made a significant impact on the mathematical community worldwide.
Audience: This volume will be of interest to mathematicians, physicists and engineers at postgraduate level.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of 30 survey and research papers summarizing the 60- year development of functional analysis in China and its current status as one of the main branches of mathematics in the country. They gravitate around the topics of critical and fixed point theories, topological degree theory, nonsmooth analysis, linear operator theory, the theory of operator algebras, applications that include the solvability of some partial differential equations, and special spaces that contain Banach spaces and topological vector spaces. Most of the bibliographical references are to western works, though the proportion varies among the papers. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
