Von Neumann Algebras
by Vaughan F. R. Jones
Publisher: UC Berkeley Mathematics 2010
Number of pages: 159
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, and we prefer to make simplifying assumptions rather than go for the most general case. Thus we do not hesitate to give several proofs of a single result, or repeat an argument with different hypotheses.

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).

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.

Lecture notes for a 3rd year undergraduate course in functional analysis. By the end of the course, you should have a good understanding of normed vector spaces, Hilbert and Banach spaces, fixed point theorems and examples of function spaces.
