Functors and Categories of Banach Spaces
by Peter W. Michor
Publisher: Springer 1978
Number of pages: 103
The aim of this book is to develop the theory of Banach operator ideals and metric tensor products along categorical lines: these two classes of mathematical objects are endofunctors on the category Ban of all Banach spaces in a natural way and may easily be characterized among them.

These notes are based on lectures given as part of a mathematics MSc program. The approach here is to discuss topological vector spaces - with normed spaces considered as special cases. Contents: Topological Spaces; Nets; Product Spaces; etc.

Introduction to Jordan algebras of operators on Hilbert spaces and their abstract counterparts. It develops the theory of Jordan operator algebras to a point from which the theory of C*- and von Neumann algebras can be generalized to Jordan algebras.

In this book you will learn something about functional analytic framework of topology. And you will get an access to more advanced literature on non-commutative geometry, a quite recent topic in mathematics and mathematical physics.
