This textbook is based on the course of lectures on functional analysis delivered to students of the Department of Mathematics and Mechanics (division of Mechanics) at Rostov State University (USSR, Russia). Outstanding scientist and tutor Professor II Vorovich initiated this course about 30 years ago. Many known scientists in the field of Mechanics were graduated from Rostov State University, so we can consider that the course itself has gotten a good approval. It is very good news that from now on, it may be used by Western students and scientists.
