Summary These expository lectures contain an advanced technical account of a branch of mathematical analysis. In his own lucid and readable style the author begins with a comprehensive review of the methods of bounded operators in a Hilbert space. He then goes on to discuss a wide variety of applications including Fredholm theory and more specifically his own specialty of mathematical quantum theory. included also are an extensive and up-to-date list of references enabling the reader to delve more deeply into this topical subject.
Contents Preliminaries -- Calkin's theory of operator ideals and symmetrically normed ideals; convergence theorems for g[subscript p] -- Trace, determinant and Lidskii's theorem -- f(x)g( -i[nabla/del]) -- Fredholm theory -- Scattering with a trace condition -- Bound state problems -- Lots if inequalities -- Regularized determinants and renormalization in quantum field theory -- An introduction to the theory on a Banach space.
