Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

Self-contained, and collating for the first time material that has until now only been published in journals - often in Russian - this book will be of interest to functional analysts, especially those with interests in topological vector spaces, and to algebraists concerned with category theory. The closed graph theorem is one of the corner stones of functional analysis, both as a tool for applications and as an object for research. However, some of the spaces which arise in applications and for which one wants closed graph theorems are not of the type covered by the classical closed graph theorem of Banach or its immediate extensions. To remedy this, mathematicians such as Schwartz and De Wilde (in the West) and Rajkov (in the East) have introduced new ideas which have allowed them to establish closed graph theorems suitable for some of the desired applications. In this book, Professor Smirnov uses category theory to provide a very general framework, including the situations discussed by De Wilde, Rajkov and others. General properties of the spaces involved are discussed and applications are provided in measure theory, global analysis and differential equations.
