# Locally Solid Riesz Spaces with Applications to Economics: Second Edition

Share this page
*Charalambos D. Aliprantis; Owen Burkinshaw*

Riesz space (or a vector lattice) is an ordered vector space that is
simultaneously a lattice. A topological Riesz space (also called a locally
solid Riesz space) is a Riesz space equipped with a linear topology that has a
base consisting of solid sets. Riesz spaces and ordered vector spaces play an
important role in analysis and optimization. They also provide the natural
framework for any modern theory of integration.

This monograph is the revised edition of the authors' book

At the end of each chapter there are exercises that complement and supplement
the material in the chapter. The last chapter of the book presents complete
solutions to all exercises. Prerequisites are the fundamentals of real
analysis, measure theory, and functional analysis. This monograph will be
useful to researchers and graduate students in mathematics. It will also be an
important reference tool to mathematical economists and to all scientists and
engineers who use order structures in their research.
