Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics, Volume I: Functional Analysis discusses the fundamental principles of functional analysis in modern mathematical physics. This book also analyzes the influence of mathematics on physics, such as the Newtonian mechanics used to interpret all physical phenomena. Organized into eight chapters, this volume starts with an overview of the functional analysis in the study of several concrete models. This book then discusses how to generalize the Lebesgue integral to work with functions on the real line and with Borel sets. This text also explores the properties of finite-dimensional vector spaces. Other chapters discuss the normed linear spaces, which have the property of being complete. This monograph further examines the general class of topologized vector spaces and the spaces of distributions that arise in a wide variety of physical problems and functional situations. This book is a valuable resource for mathematicians and physicists. Students and researchers in the field of geometry will also find this book extremely useful.
