44 of 44 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Lee D. Carlson HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 21, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book should have been titled "A Hilbert Space Idea/Problem Book" as it not only challenges the reader to work out interesting problems in operator theory and the geometry of Hilbert space, but also motivates the essential ideas behind these fields. It is definitely a book that, even though out-of-print, will be referred to by many newcomers to operator theory and quantum physics. The insight one gains by the reading of this book is unequaled in any other books in existence on operator theory. It is becoming more rare as mathematics advances, to find books that attempt to explain the intuition behind the abstractions that are manifested in any area of mathematics. The problems in the book deal with both concrete examples and general theorems, and the reader should attempt to try and solve them without looking at the hints. The solutions found by the reader can then be compared with the author's, and some interesting differences will occur.
There are so many interesting discussions in this book that to list them all would probably entail listing everything in the book. The reader will find excellent discussions of the origin of normal operators on infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces as analogs to matrices on finite dimensional spaces; why the weak topology in infinite dimensions is not metrizable; the non-emptiness of the spectrum and why the spectral radius can be computed even though the spectrum cannot; the impossibility of isolated singular operators; the non-continuity of the spectrum: the existence of an operator with a large spectrum and the existence of operators with small spectra in every neighborhood of the large spectrum.

The problems in this text are a little difficult, but this book is a great resource. I haven't done a complete reading of the text, but it had a very nice treatment of a problem that I needed for a research paper. Chances are, if you're faced with a Hilbert Space problem you can't figure out, it's broached in this text in some form.
