# Factorization of Linear Operators and Geometry of Banach Spaces

Share this page
*Gilles Pisier*

A co-publication of the AMS and CBMS

This book surveys the considerable progress made in Banach space
theory as a result of Grothendieck's fundamental paper

Although the book is aimed at mathematicians working in functional
analysis, harmonic analysis and operator algebras, its detailed and
self-contained treatment makes the material accessible to nonspecialists with
a grounding in basic functional analysis. In fact,
the author is particularly concerned to develop very recent results in
the geometry of Banach spaces in a form that emphasizes how they may
be applied in other fields, such as harmonic analysis and
\(C^*\)-algebras.
