I am a EE grad. student who has had one undergraduate course in real analysis (which was pretty much the only pure math course that I have ever done). I would like to do a self study of some basic functional analysis so that I can be better prepared to take a graduate course in that material in my university. I plan to do that next fall so I do have some time to work through a book fully. Could some one recommend some good books to start working on this?

Thanks in advance

Check out “Introductory Functional Analysis with Applications” by Erwin Kreyszig. I have not read it myself, but I have heard great things. Also, in the preface, he writes that Calculus and a familiarity with Linear Algebra are all that’s needed as prerequisites.
