Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This book is suitable as a text for graduate students. Photographs of Banach, Fréchet, Hausdorff, Hilbert and some others mathematicians are imprinted in order to involve [the reader] in the work of mathematicians."—Zentralblatt MATH

"This volume is an English translation and revised edition of a former Italian version published in 2000. … This nice book is recommended to advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It can serve also as a valuable reference for researchers in mathematics, physics, and engineering." (L. Kérchy, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 74, 2008)

“The book ‘M. Giaquinta, G. Modica: Mathematical Analysis. Linear and Metric Structures and Continuity’ is a lovely book which should be in the bookcase of every expert in mathematical analysis.” (Dagmar Medková, Mathematica Bohemica, Issue 2, 2010)

“This book offers a self-contained introduction to certain central topics of functional analysis and topology for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. … the clear and self-contained style recommend the book for self-study, offering a quick introduction to a number of central notions of functional analysis and topology. A large number of exercises and historical remarks add to the pleasant overall impression the book leaves.” (M. Kunzinger, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 157 (2), June, 2009)
