The author develops the foundations of a differential calculus on Wiener space. Unfortunately Wiener functionals are not continuous for any Banach norm. A certain scale of capacities is introduced and the concept of a slim set defined, that is a set of capacity zero for all the scale of capacities. A smooth function can then be redefined outside a slim set, and it is then continuous (together with its derivatives) relative to the Banach space norm. It is shown that the projection of a slim set by a linear projection of finite corank is a slim set on the image. Using these concepts an implicit function theorem is proved in the final section.
