This manuscript provides a brief introduction to nonlinear functional analysis. We start out with calculus in Banach spaces, review differentiation and integration, derive the implicit function theorem and apply the result to prove existence and uniqueness of solutions for ordinary differential equations in Banach spaces. Next we introduce the mapping degree in both finite and infinite dimensional Banach spaces.

The purpose of these notes is to provide a rapid introduction to von Neumann algebras which gets to the examples and active topics with a minimum of technical baggage. The philosophy is to lavish attention on a few key results and examples.

These lecture notes are an expanded version of a set written for a course given to final-year undergraduates at the University of Oxford. A thorough understanding of Banach and Hilbert spaces is a prerequisite for this material.

These notes form an introductory account of C*-algebras. Some results on more general commutative Banach algebras, whose proofs require little extra effort, are included. There are accounts of two applications of the commutative theory ...
