*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

'... an impressive piece of work written by two experts in the theory of normed algebras whose multiplication may not be associative ... This review is certainly too brief to do justice to the rich contents of this book, which is a welcome addition to the literature on functional analysis and is definitely useful to anyone with an interest in this area and related topics, ranging from beginner operator theorists to people interested in specific problems involving non-associative algebras.' Daniel Beltita, Mathematical Reviews 'I dare say that this book is the first detailed treatise whose primary goal is the study of normed nonassociative algebras. The two authors are recognized experts in this topic, which combines functional analysis, geometry of Banach spaces and what could be called structure theory of algebras which are nearly associative.'
