Some corrections to the second edition:

  • Example 1.1.10: The conclusion is correct under additional assumption that K is connected (noticed by Samopriya Basu).
  • Proposition 1.1.53: Here the family K_0 should also contain unions of all relatively compact sets from the base of topology, e.g. union of balls in Euclidean space. (Correction provided by Daniel Hug).
  • Theorem 1.4.25 was cited from Teran [834]. The author informed me that later that M.Dumav and M.Stinchcombe (Proc. Amer. Math. Soc., 2016) provided a counterexample. Still it is not clear what is a gap in the proof by Teran [834].
  • Theorem 3.1.31 was cited from Teran [841]. The author informed that this result holds only assuming that the dual space is separable.

Minor misprints

  • p.468, line 2: In the second line of Example 5.1.29 x should be replaced by t.
