These notes are based on lectures given at King's College London
(as part of the Mathematics MSc programme).
The approach here is to discuss topological vector spaces - with normed
spaces considered as special cases.
It is a pleasure to thank Dr Frank Jellett for numerous enjoyable discussions.
Thanks also to Eli Cooper (UMass) for pointing out a couple of "inaccuracies" and to João Hélder (IMPA - Rio de Janeiro) for helpful comments.
