This excellent volume is exactly what you need to get a fast connection between traditional abstract operator theory and other application-oriented branches of mathematics. It shows how apparently different topics are in fact closely related. For example: The Hahn-Banach theorem and separation of convex sets, and eventually the optimal control of rockets; or reflexive Banach spaces and obstacle problems in elasticity; or Fredholm operators and the Navier-Stokes equations.
If find this text suitable mostly for graduate students who are already acquainted with this kind of subjects and want to deepen their knowledge on the interaction between different branches of mathematics and physics.
