The second edition of this successful textbook, first published in 1970, retains the aims of the first, namely to provide a truly introductory course in functional analysis, but the opportunity has been taken to add more detail and worked examples. The main changes are complete revisons of the work on convex sets, metric and topological linear spaces, reflexivity and weak convergence. Additional material on the Weiner algebra of absolutely convergent Fourier series and on weak topologies is included. A final chapter includes elementary applications of functional analysis to differential and integral equations.
