Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Mathematics

From the Preface: "This book was written for the active reader. The first part consists of problems, frequently preceded by definitions and motivation, and sometimes followed by corollaries and historical remarks... The second part, a very short one, consists of hints... The third part, the longest, consists of solutions: proofs, answers, or contructions, depending on the nature of the problem.... This is not an introduction to Hilbert space theory. Some knowledge of that subject is a prerequisite: at the very least, a study of the elements of Hilbert space theory should proceed concurrently with the reading of this book."

A Short Course on Spectral Theory

Author: William Arveson
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9780387215181
Release Date: 2006-04-18
Genre: Mathematics

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.

Blending techniques from "soft" and "hard" analysis, the book contains clear and beautiful proofs. There are numerous exercises at the end of each chapter, along with a brief guide for further study which includes references to applications to topics in engineering.

An Introduction to Hilbert Space

Author: N. Young
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521337178
Release Date: 1988-07-21
Genre: Mathematics

This textbook is an introduction to the theory of Hilbert spaces and its applications. The notion of a Hilbert space is a central idea in functional analysis and can be used in numerous branches of pure and applied mathematics. Dr. Young stresses these applications particularly for the solution of partial differential equations in mathematical physics and to the approximation of functions in complex analysis. Some basic familiarity with real analysis, linear algebra and metric spaces is assumed, but otherwise the book is self-contained. The book is based on courses given at the University of Glasgow and contains numerous examples and exercises (many with solutions). The book will make an excellent first course in Hilbert space theory at either undergraduate or graduate level and will also be of interest to electrical engineers and physicists, particularly those involved in control theory and filter design.

Linear Operators in Hilbert Spaces

Author: Joachim Weidmann
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461260271
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Mathematics

This English edition is almost identical to the German original Lineare Operatoren in Hilbertriiumen, published by B. G. Teubner, Stuttgart in 1976. A few proofs have been simplified, some additional exercises have been included, and a small number of new results has been added (e.g., Theorem 11.11 and Theorem 11.23). In addition a great number of minor errors has been corrected. Frankfurt, January 1980 J. Weidmann vii Preface to the German edition The purpose of this book is to give an introduction to the theory of linear operators on Hilbert spaces and then to proceed to the interesting applica tions of differential operators to mathematical physics. Besides the usual introductory courses common to both mathematicians and physicists, only a fundamental knowledge of complex analysis and of ordinary differential equations is assumed. The most important results of Lebesgue integration theory, to the extent that they are used in this book, are compiled with complete proofs in Appendix A. I hope therefore that students from the fourth semester on will be able to read this book without major difficulty. However, it might also be of some interest and use to the teaching and research mathematician or physicist, since among other things it makes easily accessible several new results of the spectral theory of differential operators.

Analysis Now

Author: Gert K. Pedersen
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461210078
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Mathematics

Graduate students in mathematics, who want to travel light, will find this book invaluable; impatient young researchers in other fields will enjoy it as an instant reference to the highlights of modern analysis. Starting with general topology, it moves on to normed and seminormed linear spaces. From there it gives an introduction to the general theory of operators on Hilbert space, followed by a detailed exposition of the various forms the spectral theorem may take; from Gelfand theory, via spectral measures, to maximal commutative von Neumann algebras. The book concludes with two supplementary chapters: a concise account of unbounded operators and their spectral theory, and a complete course in measure and integration theory from an advanced point of view.

Hilbert Space Operators

Author: Carlos S. Kubrusly
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 0817632425
Release Date: 2003-08-07
Genre: Mathematics

This is a problem book on Hilbert space operators (Le. , on bounded linear transformations of a Hilbert space into itself) where theory and problems are investigated together. We tre!l:t only a part of the so-called single operator theory. Selected prob lems, ranging from standard textbook material to points on the boundary of the subject, are organized into twelve chapters. The book begins with elementary aspects of Invariant Subspaces for operators on Banach spaces 1. Basic properties of Hilbert Space Operators are introduced in in Chapter Chapter 2, Convergence and Stability are considered in Chapter 3, and Re ducing Subspaces is the theme of Chapter 4. Primary results about Shifts on Hilbert space comprise Chapter 5. These are introductory chapters where the majority of the problems consist of auxiliary results that prepare the ground for the next chapters. Chapter 6 deals with Decompositions for Hilbert space contractions, Chapter 7 focuses on Hyponormal Operators, and Chapter 8 is concerned with Spectral Properties of operators on Banach and Hilbert spaces. The next three chapters (as well as Chapter 6) carry their subjects from an introductory level to a more advanced one, including some recent results. Chapter 9 is about Paranormal Operators, Chapter 10 covers Proper Contractions, and Chapter 11 searches through Quasi reducible Operators. The final Chapter 12 commemorates three decades of The Lomonosov Theorem on nontrivial hyperinvariant subspaces for compact operators.

An Introduction to Hilbert Space and Quantum Logic

Author: David W. Cohen
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461388418
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Science

Historically, nonclassical physics developed in three stages. First came a collection of ad hoc assumptions and then a cookbook of equations known as "quantum mechanics". The equations and their philosophical underpinnings were then collected into a model based on the mathematics of Hilbert space. From the Hilbert space model came the abstaction of "quantum logics". This book explores all three stages, but not in historical order. Instead, in an effort to illustrate how physics and abstract mathematics influence each other we hop back and forth between a purely mathematical development of Hilbert space, and a physically motivated definition of a logic, partially linking the two throughout, and then bringing them together at the deepest level in the last two chapters. This book should be accessible to undergraduate and beginning graduate students in both mathematics and physics. The only strict prerequisites are calculus and linear algebra, but the level of mathematical sophistication assumes at least one or two intermediate courses, for example in mathematical analysis or advanced calculus. No background in physics is assumed.

Quantum Theory for Mathematicians

Author: Brian C. Hall
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461471165
Release Date: 2013-06-19
Genre: Science

Although ideas from quantum physics play an important role in many parts of modern mathematics, there are few books about quantum mechanics aimed at mathematicians. This book introduces the main ideas of quantum mechanics in language familiar to mathematicians. Readers with little prior exposure to physics will enjoy the book's conversational tone as they delve into such topics as the Hilbert space approach to quantum theory; the Schrödinger equation in one space dimension; the Spectral Theorem for bounded and unbounded self-adjoint operators; the Stone–von Neumann Theorem; the Wentzel–Kramers–Brillouin approximation; the role of Lie groups and Lie algebras in quantum mechanics; and the path-integral approach to quantum mechanics. The numerous exercises at the end of each chapter make the book suitable for both graduate courses and independent study. Most of the text is accessible to graduate students in mathematics who have had a first course in real analysis, covering the basics of L2 spaces and Hilbert spaces. The final chapters introduce readers who are familiar with the theory of manifolds to more advanced topics, including geometric quantization.
