Summary and Info
This monograph gives a carefully worked-out account of the most basic principles and applications of the theory of fixed points. Until now, a treatment of many of the discussed topics has been unavailable in book form. The presentation is self-contained and is accessible to a broad spectrum of readers. The main text is complemented by numerous exercises, detailed comments, and a comprehensive bibliography.Granas-Dugundji's book is an encyclopedic survey of the classical fixed point theory of continuous maps (the work of Poincaré, Brouwer, Lefschetz-Hopf, Leray-Schauder) and all its various modern extensions. This is certainly the most learned book ever likely to be published on this subject.
