This is the first ever truly introductory text to the theory of tensor products of Banach spaces. Coverage includes a full treatment of the Grothendieck theory of tensor norms, approximation property and the Radon-Nikodym Property, Bochner and Pettis integrals. Each chapter contains worked examples and a set of exercises, and two appendices offer material on summability in Banach spaces and properties of spaces of measures.

Special numerical techniques are already needed to deal with nxn matrices for large n.Tensor data are of size nxnx...xn=n^d, where n^d exceeds the computer memory by far. They appear for problems of high spatial dimensions. Since standard methods fail, a particular tensor calculus is needed to treat such problems. The monograph describes the methods how tensors can be practically treated and how numerical operations can be performed. Applications are problems from quantum chemistry, approximation of multivariate functions, solution of pde, e.g., with stochastic coefficients, etc. ​

This book presents the basic tools of modern analysis within the context of the fundamental problem of operator theory: to calculate spectra of specific operators on infinite dimensional spaces, especially operators on Hilbert spaces. The tools are diverse, and they provide the basis for more refined methods that allow one to approach problems that go well beyond the computation of spectra: the mathematical foundations of quantum physics, noncommutative K-theory, and the classification of simple C*-algebras being three areas of current research activity which require mastery of the material presented here.

"The most readable introduction to the theory of vector spaces available in English and possibly any other language."—J. L. B. Cooper, MathSciNet Review Mathematically rigorous but user-friendly, this classic treatise discusses major modern contributions to the field of topological vector spaces. The self-contained treatment includes complete proofs for all necessary results from algebra and topology. Suitable for undergraduate mathematics majors with a background in advanced calculus, this volume will also assist professional mathematicians, physicists, and engineers. The precise exposition of the first three chapters—covering Banach spaces, locally convex spaces, and duality—provides an excellent summary of the modern theory of locally convex spaces. The fourth and final chapter develops the theory of distributions in relation to convolutions, tensor products, and Fourier transforms. Augmented with many examples and exercises, the text includes an extensive bibliography.

Banach spaces provide a framework for linear and nonlinear functional analysis, operator theory, abstract analysis, probability, optimization and other branches of mathematics. This book introduces the reader to linear functional analysis and to related parts of infinite-dimensional Banach space theory. Key Features: - Develops classical theory, including weak topologies, locally convex space, Schauder bases and compact operator theory - Covers Radon-Nikodým property, finite-dimensional spaces and local theory on tensor products - Contains sections on uniform homeomorphisms and non-linear theory, Rosenthal's L1 theorem, fixed points, and more - Includes information about further topics and directions of research and some open problems at the end of each chapter - Provides numerous exercises for practice The text is suitable for graduate courses or for independent study. Prerequisites include basic courses in calculus and linear. Researchers in functional analysis will also benefit for this book as it can serve as a reference book.

Famed mathematician Alexander Grothendieck, in his Resume, set forth his plan for the study of the finer structure of Banach spaces. He used tensor products as a foundation upon which he built the classes of operators most important to the study of Banach spaces and established the importance of the "local" theory in the study of these operators and the spaces they act upon. When Lintenstrauss and Pelczynski addressed his work at the rebirth of Banach space theory, they shed his Fundamental Inequality in the trappings of operator ideals by shedding the tensorial formulation. The authors of this book, however, feel that there is much of value in Grothendieck's original formulations in the Resume and here endeavor to "expose the Resume" by presenting most of Grothendieck's arguments using the mathematical tools that were available to him at the time.

Theory of Association Schemes

This book is a concept-oriented treatment of the structure theory of association schemes. The generalization of Sylow’s group theoretic theorems to scheme theory arises as a consequence of arithmetical considerations about quotient schemes. The theory of Coxeter schemes (equivalent to the theory of buildings) emerges naturally and yields a purely algebraic proof of Tits’ main theorem on buildings of spherical type.

This volume, setting out the theory of positive maps as it stands today, reflects the rapid growth in this area of mathematics since it was recognized in the 1990s that these applications of C*-algebras are crucial to the study of entanglement in quantum theory. The author, a leading authority on the subject, sets out numerous results previously unpublished in book form. In addition to outlining the properties and structures of positive linear maps of operator algebras into the bounded operators on a Hilbert space, he guides readers through proofs of the Stinespring theorem and its applications to inequalities for positive maps. The text examines the maps’ positivity properties, as well as their associated linear functionals together with their density operators. It features special sections on extremal positive maps and Choi matrices. In sum, this is a vital publication that covers a full spectrum of matters relating to positive linear maps, of which a large proportion is relevant and applicable to today’s quantum information theory. The latter sections of the book present the material in finite dimensions, while the text as a whole appeals to a wider and more general readership by keeping the mathematics as elementary as possible throughout.

Higher Moments of Banach Space Valued Random Variables

The authors define the :th moment of a Banach space valued random variable as the expectation of its :th tensor power; thus the moment (if it exists) is an element of a tensor power of the original Banach space. The authors study both the projective and injective tensor products, and their relation. Moreover, in order to be general and flexible, we study three different types of expectations: Bochner integrals, Pettis integrals and Dunford integrals.

This volume contains the proceedings of the Sixth Conference on Function Spaces, which was held from May 18-22, 2010, at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. The papers cover a broad range of topics, including spaces and algebras of analytic functions of one and of many variables (and operators on such spaces), spaces of integrable functions, spaces of Banach-valued functions, isometries of function spaces, geometry of Banach spaces, and other related subjects.
