Ideal spaces are normed spaces of measurable functions. They form a rather wide class which contains the Lebesgue, Lorentz, Orlicz and Marcinkiewicz spaces including their weighted and other forms. A certain problem with these spaces in existing literature is that they have different names (namely, Banach function spaces and Köthe spaces), and are defined in different ways.
The author extends the basic summarizing texts [A. C. Zaanen, “Integration”, Amsterdam (1967; Zbl 0175.05002) and P. P. Zabrejko, Ideal spaces of functions I (in Russian), Vestnik Jarosl. Univ., 12-52 (1974)] and concentrates on the general case of vector-valued functions (in particular, of functions with values in infinite-dimensional Banach spaces) on arbitrary measure spaces (not necessarily finite or \(\sigma\)-finite measure spaces), on spaces with mixed norms, and on calculus with functions with values in ideal spaces. He shows that the presented results can be applied in the theory of integro-differential equations (in particular, of Barbashin type) and that they yield in strong theorems on continuity of operators of Hammerstein type. As he admitted, the former was the main motivation for the book. The remarkable feature is that the proofs are constructive in the sense that the author avoids the use of the axiom of choice and of the continuum hypothesis.
The book is organized in five chapters (1. Introduction, 2. Basic definitions, 3. Ideal spaces with additional properties, 4. Ideal spaces on product measures and calculus, 5. Operators and applications) and one appendix (Some measurability results).
