This text is ideal for a basic course in functional analysis for senior undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students. John Giles provides insight into basic abstract analysis, which is now the contextual language of much modern mathematics. Although it is assumed that the student has familiarity with elementary real and complex analysis, linear algebra, and the analysis of metric spaces, the book does not assume a knowledge of integration theory or general topology. Its central theme concerns structural properties of normed linear spaces in general, especially associated with dual spaces and continuous linear operators on normed linear spaces. Giles illustrates the general theory with a great variety of example spaces.

Assuming a basic knowledge of real analysis and linear algebra, the student is given some familiarity with the axiomatic method in analysis and is shown the power of this method in exploiting the fundamental analysis structures underlying a variety of applications. Although the text is titled metric spaces, normed linear spaces are introduced immediately because this added structure is present in many examples and its recognition brings an interesting link with linear algebra; finite dimensional spaces are discussed earlier. It is intended that metric spaces be studied in some detail before general topology is begun. This follows the teaching principle of proceeding from the concrete to the more abstract. Graded exercises are provided at the end of each section and in each set the earlier exercises are designed to assist in the detection of the abstract structural properties in concrete examples while the latter are more conceptually sophisticated.

Enumerative combinatorics, in its algebraic and analytic forms, is vital to many areas of mathematics, from model theory to statistical mechanics. This book, which stems from many years' experience of teaching, invites students into the subject and prepares them for more advanced texts. It is suitable as a class text or for individual study. The author provides proofs for many of the theorems to show the range of techniques available, and uses examples to link enumerative combinatorics to other areas of study. The main section of the book introduces the key tools of the subject (generating functions and recurrence relations), which are then used to study the most important combinatorial objects, namely subsets, partitions, and permutations of a set. Later chapters deal with more specialised topics, including permanents, SDRs, group actions and the Redfield–Pólya theory of cycle indices, Möbius inversion, the Tutte polynomial, and species.

Foundations of Convex Geometry

This book on the foundations of Euclidean geometry aims to present the subject from the point of view of present day mathematics, taking advantage of all the developments since the appearance of Hilbert's classic work. Here real affine space is characterised by a small number of axioms involving points and line segments making the treatment self-contained and thorough, many results being established under weaker hypotheses than usual. The treatment should be totally accessible for final year undergraduates and graduate students, and can also serve as an introduction to other areas of mathematics such as matroids and antimatroids, combinatorial convexity, the theory of polytopes, projective geometry and functional analysis.
