Linear Analysis?

  1. Aug 16, 2007 #1
    How is it connected to more traditional anlysis. I view analysis as epsilon delta stuff. But topics in linear anlaysis like measure theory and functional analysis seem to involve richer stuff like set theory which borders topology.

    I've never heard of "linear analysis" (I have heard of non-linear analysis). The things you mention are all part of "functional analysis" which, since it involves sets of functions does, indeed, use much more topology.
