This textbook is a completely revised, updated, and expanded English edition of the important Analyse fonctionnelle (1983). In addition, it contains a wealth of problems and exercises (with solutions) to guide the reader. Uniquely, this book presents in a coherent, concise and unified way the main results from functional analysis together with the main results from the theory of partial differential equations (PDEs). Although there are many books on functional analysis and many on PDEs, this is the first to cover both of these closely connected topics. Since the French book was first published, it has been translated into Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Romanian, Greek and Chinese. The English edition makes a welcome addition to this list.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This textbook has its origin in the French version Analyse fonctionnelle published in 1985, which has become a standard reference and was translated into several languages. . At the end of each chapter the reader will find comments with further information, references, and historic remarks. . In summary, the present textbook provides an excellent basis for a course on functional analysis plus a follow-up course on partial differential equations. It is well-written and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to both students and teachers." (G. Teschl, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 165 (3-4), March, 2012)"This book is a tour de force by the author, who is a master of modern nonlinear functional analysis and who has contributed extensively to the development of the theory of partial differential equations. . The writing is lively, the material is diverse and maintains a strong unity. . the book is a very useful contribution to the growing literature on this circle of ideas. I wholeheartedly recommend this book both as a textbook, as well as for independent study." (Vicentiu Radulescu, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 a)"The book is the English translation of an 1983 book published in French: Analyse fonctionnelle :théorie et applications . . It has seen translations into numerous languages and the Springer edition was especially anticipated, as it announced a number of practice exercises following each chapter. I can honestly say that it was well worth the wait. . The text is a pleasure to read. . I wholeheartedly recommend this book as both a textbook as well as for independent study."
