Stunning recent results by Host–Kra, Green–Tao, and others, highlight the timeliness of this systematic introduction to classical ergodic theory using the tools of operator theory. Assuming no prior exposure to ergodic theory, this book provides a modern foundation for introductory courses on ergodic theory, especially for students or researchers with an interest in functional analysis. While basic analytic notions... more...


The book offers a direct and up-to-date introduction to the theory of one-parameter semigroups of linear operators on Banach spaces. It contains the fundamental results of the theory such as the Hille-Yoshida generation theorem, the bounded perturbation theorem, and the Trotter-Kato approximation theorem. It also treats the spectral theory of semigroups and its consequences for the qualitative behavior. The book is intended for students and researchers... more...

This book explores the theory of strongly continuous one-parameter semigroups of linear operators. A special feature of the text is an unusually wide range of applications such as to ordinary and partial differential operators, to delay and Volterra equations, and to control theory. Also, the book places an emphasis on philosophical motivation and the historical background.
