Building on the success of the two previous editions, "Introduction to Hilbert Spaces with Applications, 3E" offers an overview of the basic ideas and results of Hilbert space theory and functional analysis. It acquaints students with the Lebesgue integral, and includes an enhanced presentation of results and proofs. Students and researchers will benefit from the wealth of revised examples in new, diverse applications as they apply to optimization, variational and control problems, and problems in approximation theory, non-linear instability, and bifurcation. The text also includes a popular chapter on wavelets that has been completely updated. Students and researchers agree that this is the definitive text on Hilbert Space theory. It contains an updated chapter on wavelets; provides an improved presentation on results and proof; contains revised examples and updated applications; and features a completely updated list of references.

His many honors and awards include two Senior Fulbright Fellowships and an NSF Scientist award to visit India for lectures and research. Dr. Debnath is author or co-author of several books and research papers in pure and applied mathematics, and serves on several editorial boards for scientific journals. He is the current and founding Managing Editor of the International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences. Piotr Mikusinski received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. In 1983, he became visiting lecturer at the University of California at Santa Barbara, where he spent two years. He is currently a member of the faculty in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. His main research interests are the theory of generalized functions and real analysis. He has published many research articles and is co-author with his father, Jan Mikusinski, of An Introduction to Analysis: From Number to Integral.
