Research interests

Function Spaces, and in particular the C(X)-theory (where C(X) denotes the set of continuous real or complex-valued functions on a space X). My interest in spaces of continuous functions arose from the following fascinating phenomenon: Every Tychonoff space X can be regarded (by identifying each point with a linear functional on C(X)) as a Hamel basis of a certain locally convex Hausdorff space; and every locally convex Hausdorff space can be realised as a space of continuous functions.
