Dan Rockmore's Stalking the Riemann Hypothesis could be good too. The reviews indicate that it can be pretty frustratingly non-mathy - only one equation! I think these reviewers do not actually know what "popular level" means.

Also worth noting that he is a sweet dude who taught my calc 3 class.

Everyday Calculus: Discovering the Hidden Math All Around Us by Oscar E. Fernandez
Seems like a good book

Can someone please recommend me a book on the subject of nonlinear systems?

I've really enjoyed Infinite Dimensional Analysis by Aliprantis and Border.

It has a reasonably comprehensive coverage (at least, as comprehensive as you can get given the breadth of the subject matter) of topology, measure theory and functional analysis.

If anyone has suggestions of texts with a similar bend, I'd love to hear them.

Re: Math Books-Banach Lattices

Postby Farabor » Wed Oct 12, 2016 12:05 am UTC

I'm trying to learn about Banach Lattices (Riesz spaces which are Banach Spaces). The textbook my professor gave me to work from is Peter Meyer-Nieberg's "Banach Lattices", 1st edition, 1991. I'm finding it extremely dense/hard to follow. (I didn't have any problem with Kreyszig's Introductory Functional Analysis, which is my background). Does anyone have other books to recommend that I might find more accessible?

The book I mention one post above (Aliprantis & Border) covers Banach Lattices. I think that was also one of Aliprantis' main research areas, so it might be worth a look.
