Functors and Categories of Banach Spaces
by Peter W. Michor
Publisher: Springer 1978
Number of pages: 103
The aim of this book is to develop the theory of Banach operator ideals and metric tensor products along categorical lines: these two classes of mathematical objects are endofunctors on the category Ban of all Banach spaces in a natural way and may easily be characterized among them.

This free manuscript provides a brief introduction to Functional Analysis. The text covers basic Hilbert and Banach space theory including Lebesgue spaces and their duals (no knowledge about Lebesgue integration is assumed).
