Theory of Linear Operators in Hilbert Space by N. I. Akhiezer, I. M. Glazman This classic textbook introduces linear operators in Hilbert Space, and presents the geometry of Hilbert space and the spectral theory of unitary and self-adjoint operators. Invaluable for every mathematician and physicist. 1961, 1963 edition.
The Convolution Transform by Isidore Isaac Hirschman, David V. Widder The relation between differential operators and integral transforms is the theme of this work. Discusses finite and non-finite kernels, variation diminishing transforms, asymptotic behavior of kernels, real inversion theory, representation theory, the Weierstrass transform, more.
Theory of Linear Operations by Stefan Banach, F. Jellett Written by the founder of functional analysis, this is the first text on linear operator theory. Additional topics include the calculus of variations and theory of integral equations. 1987 edition.
This volume presents a systematic treatment of the theory of unbounded linear operators in normed linear spaces with applications to differential equations. Largely self-contained, it is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, and it only requires a familiarity with metric spaces and real variable theory. After introducing the elementary theory of normed linear spaces—particularly Hilbert space, which is used throughout the book—the author develops the basic theory of unbounded linear operators with normed linear spaces assumed complete, employing operators assumed closed only when needed. Other topics include strictly singular operators; operators with closed range; perturbation theory, including some of the main theorems that are later applied to ordinary differential operators; and the Dirichlet operator, in which the author outlines the interplay between functional analysis and "hard" classical analysis in the study of elliptic partial differential equations. In addition to its readable style, this book's appeal includes numerous examples and motivations for certain definitions and proofs. Moreover, it employs simple notation, eliminating the need to refer to a list of symbols.
