Completely self-contained ... All proofs are given in full detail ... recommended for unassisted reading by beginners ... For teaching purposes this book is ideal. --Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society The book is easy to read and, although the author had in mind graduate students, most of it is obviously appropriate for an advanced undergraduate course. It is also a book which a reasonably good student might read on his own. --Mathematical Reviews This textbook evolved from a set of course notes for first- or second-year graduate students in mathematics and related fields such as physics. It presents, in a self-contained way, various aspects of geometry and analysis of Hilbert spaces, including the spectral theorem for compact operators. Over 400 exercises provide examples and counter-examples for definitions and theorems in the book, as well as generalization of some material in the text. Aside from being an exposition of basic material on Hilbert space, this book may also serve as an introduction to other areas of functional analysis. The only prerequisite for understanding the material is a standard foundation in advanced calculus. The main notions of linear algebra, such as vector spaces, bases, etc., are explained in the first chapter of the book.

This book offers an elementary and engaging introduction to operator theory on the Hardy-Hilbert space. It provides a firm foundation for the study of all spaces of analytic functions and of the operators on them. Blending techniques from "soft" and "hard" analysis, the book contains clear and beautiful proofs. There are numerous exercises at the end of each chapter, along with a brief guide for further study which includes references to applications to topics in engineering.
A Geometric Approach to Modeling, Estimation and Identification
Author: Anders Lindquist,Giorgio Picci
This book presents a treatise on the theory and modeling of second-order stationary processes, including an exposition on selected application areas that are important in the engineering and applied sciences. The foundational issues regarding stationary processes dealt with in the beginning of the book have a long history, starting in the 1940s with the work of Kolmogorov, Wiener, Cramér and his students, in particular Wold, and have since been refined and complemented by many others. Problems concerning the filtering and modeling of stationary random signals and systems have also been addressed and studied, fostered by the advent of modern digital computers, since the fundamental work of R.E. Kalman in the early 1960s. The book offers a unified and logically consistent view of the subject based on simple ideas from Hilbert space geometry and coordinate-free thinking. In this framework, the concepts of stochastic state space and state space modeling, based on the notion of the conditional independence of past and future flows of the relevant signals, are revealed to be fundamentally unifying ideas. The book, based on over 30 years of original research, represents a valuable contribution that will inform the fields of stochastic modeling, estimation, system identification, and time series analysis for decades to come. It also provides the mathematical tools needed to grasp and analyze the structures of algorithms in stochastic systems theory.

Paul R. Halmos in Memoriam

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Paul Richard Halmos, who lived a life of unbounded devotion to mathematics and to the mathematical community, died at the age of 90 on October 2, 2006. This volume is a memorial to Paul by operator theorists he inspired. Paul’sinitial research,beginning with his 1938Ph.D. thesis at the University of Illinois under Joseph Doob, was in probability, ergodic theory, and measure theory. A shift occurred in the 1950s when Paul’s interest in foundations led him to invent a subject he termed algebraic logic, resulting in a succession of papers on that subject appearing between 1954 and 1961, and the book Algebraic Logic, published in 1962. Paul’s ?rst two papers in pure operator theory appeared in 1950. After 1960 Paul’s research focused on Hilbert space operators, a subject he viewed as enc- passing ?nite-dimensional linear algebra. Beyond his research, Paul contributed to mathematics and to its community in manifold ways: as a renowned expositor, as an innovative teacher, as a tireless editor, and through unstinting service to the American Mathematical Society and to the Mathematical Association of America. Much of Paul’s in?uence ?owed at a personal level. Paul had a genuine, uncalculating interest in people; he developed an enormous number of friendships over the years, both with mathematicians and with nonmathematicians. Many of his mathematical friends, including the editors ofthisvolume,whileabsorbingabundantquantitiesofmathematicsatPaul’sknee, learned from his advice and his example what it means to be a mathematician.

Dieses Buch ist eine umfassende Einführung in die klassischen Lösungsmethoden partieller Differentialgleichungen. Es wendet sich an Leser mit Kenntnissen aus einem viersemestrigen Grundstudium der Mathematik (und Physik) und legt seinen Schwerpunkt auf die explizite Darstellung der Lösungen. Es ist deshalb besonders auch für Anwender (Physiker, Ingenieure) sowie für Nichtspezialisten, die die Methoden der mathematischen Physik kennenlernen wollen, interessant. Durch die große Anzahl von Beispielen und Übungsaufgaben eignet es sich gut zum Gebrauch neben Vorlesungen sowie zum Selbststudium.

Written in a user-friendly, motivating style, this introduction to operator theory presents the fundamental topics in a systematic fashion. The exposition is concept-driven and avoids the formula-computational approach. The required background material to each chapter is included, and more than 500 fully rigorous proofs and more than 100 examples are given. Over 300 problems are presented in a non-traditional framework that challenges readers to prove the theorems anew.

This book introduces some basic topics in the spectral theory of dynamical systems, but also includes advanced topics such as a theorem due to H. Helson and W. Parry, and another due to B. Host. Moreover, Ornstein's family of mixing rank one automorphisms is described with construction and proof. Systems of imprimitivity, and their relevance to ergodic theory, are discussed. Baire category theorems of ergodic theory, scattered in the literature, are derived in a unified way. Riesz products are considered, and they are used to describe the spectral types and eigenvalues of rank one automorphisms. "Spectral Theory of Dynamical Systems" is the first book devoted exclusively to this subject, moving from introductory material to some topics of current research. The exposition is at a general level and aimed at advanced students and researchers in dynamical systems.

This book presents modern algebra from first principles and is accessible to undergraduates or graduates. It combines standard materials and necessary algebraic manipulations with general concepts that clarify meaning and importance. This conceptual approach to algebra starts with a description of algebraic structures by means of axioms chosen to suit the examples, for instance, axioms for groups, rings, fields, lattices, and vector spaces. This axiomatic approach--emphasized by Hilbert and developed in Germany by Noether, Artin, Van der Waerden, et al., in the 1920s--was popularized for the graduate level in the 1940s and 1950s to some degree by the authors' publication of A Survey of Modern Algebra. The present book presents the developments from that time to the first printing of this book. This third edition includes corrections made by the authors.
