2013 Reprint of 1961 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This introduction to linear algebra and functional analysis offers a clear expository treatment, viewing algebra, geometry, and analysis as parts of an integrated whole rather than separate subjects. All abstract ideas receive a high degree of motivation, and numerous examples illustrate many different fields of mathematics. Abundant problems include hints or answers. Georgi Shilov was a Soviet mathematician and expert in the field of functional analysis, who contributed to the theory of normed rings and generalized functions. Shilov often collaborated with colleague Israel Gelfand on research that included generalized functions and partial differential equations.
