There are excellent books on both functional analysis and summability. Most of them are very terse. In Functional Analysis and Summability, the author makes a sincere attempt for a gentle introduction of these topics to the students. In the functional analysis component of the book, the Hahn-Banach theorem, the Banach-Steinhaus theorem (or uniform boundedness principle), the open mapping theorem, the closed graph theorem and the Riesz representation theorem are highlighted. In the summability component of the book, the Silverman-Toeplitz theorem, Schur's theorem, the Steinhaus theorem and Steinhaus type theorems are proved. The utility of functional analytic tools like the uniform boundedness principle to prove some results in summability theory is also pointed out.



  • A sincere attempt is made by the author for a soft and gentle introduction of the topics to the student
  • Basic results of functional analysis and summability theory are highlighted
  • Applications of these results are also brought out
  • A lot of examples have been provided in the text wherever needed
  • Useful exercises are included at the end of each chapter


The book will be useful to postgraduate students, pre-research level students and research scholars in mathematics. Students of physics and engineering will also find this book useful since topics in the book also have applications in related areas.
