# Function Spaces

Share this page *Edited by *
*Krzysztof Jarosz*

This proceedings volume presents 36 papers given by leading
experts during the Third Conference on Function Spaces held at
Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. A wide range of topics
in the subject area are covered. Most papers are written for
nonexperts, so the book can serve as a good introduction to the topic
for those interested in this area.

The book presents the following broad range of topics, including
spaces and algebras of analytic functions of one and of many
variables, \(L^p\) spaces, spaces of Banach-valued functions,
isometries of function spaces, geometry of Banach spaces and related
subjects. Known results, open problems, and new discoveries are
featured. At the time of publication, information about the book, the
conference, and a list and pictures of contributors are available on
the Web at www.siue.edu/MATH/conference.htm.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in functional analysis.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

A very nice collection of short survey-type articles mixed with research articles.
