Author:Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas
Description: A short article designed to provide an introduction to functional analysis, which views the big picture in differential equations, for example, thinking of a differential operator as a linear map on a large set of functions. Thus this area becomes the study of (infinite-dimensional) vector spaces with some kind of metric or other structure, including ring structures (Banach algebras and C-* algebras for example). Appropriate generalizations of measure, derivatives, and duality also belong to this area. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus.
