I have known a lot of excellent textbooks on functional analysis:

  • Functional Analysis (Walter Rudin)

  • Functional Analysis, Sobolev Spaces and Partial Differential Equations (Haim Brezis)


I could not find some good exercise books on functional analysis.

Please help me to find some good books on exercise of functional analysis.

Thank you for all helping and comments.

Try Exercises in Functional Analysis by Constantin Costara and Dumitru Popa.

The book M. Fabian, P. Habala, P. Hajek, V. Montesinos, V. Zizler: Banach Space Theory. The Basis of Linear and Nonlinear Analysis has plenty of exercises at the and of each chapter.

Google Books link, MR2766381 (2012h:46001), Zbl 1229.46001.

There is the classic by Halmos, a problem book in Hilbert spaces. It is a GTM book so should be easy to find. Stein's Real Analysis and Functional Analysis might be also a good choice, if you want a broader flavor in analysis topics.
