# Trace Ideals and Their Applications: Second Edition

Share this page
*Barry Simon*

This is a second edition of a well-known book stemming from the author's lectures on the theory of trace ideals in the algebra of operators in a Hilbert space. Because of the theory's many different applications, the book was widely used and much in demand.

For this edition, the author has added four chapters on the closely related theory of rank one perturbations of self-adjoint operators. He has also included a comprehensive index and an addendum describing some developments since the original notes were published.

This book continues to be a vital source of information for those interested in the theory of trace ideals and in its applications to various areas of mathematical physics.
