This book gives a coherent account of the theory of Banach spaces and Banach lattices, using the spaces C_0(K) of continuous functions on a locally compact space K as the main example. The study of C_0(K) has been an important area of functional analysis for many years. It gives several new constructions, some involving Boolean rings, of this space as well as many results on the Stonean space of Boolean rings. The book also discusses when Banach spaces of continuous functions are dual spaces and when they are bidual spaces.
“This monograph is said to be about dual C(K) spaces; but it contains a wealth of information on other related topics. … The book is very well structured and clearly written. The exposition is as self-contained as can be expected from a volume so slim.” (Timur Oikhberg, Mathematical Reviews, January, 2018)
