This monograph presents a scientific therapy of the summary idea of adjoint semigroups. After offering the fundamental user-friendly effects, the subsequent issues are taken care of intimately: The sigma (X, X )-topology, -reflexivity, the Favard classification, Hille-Yosida operators, interpolation and extrapolation, vulnerable -continuous semigroups, the codimension of X in X , adjoint semigroups and the Radon-Nikodym estate, tensor items of semigroups and duality, optimistic semigroups and multiplication semigroups. the main a part of the fabric is fairly self-contained and is obtainable to somebody with uncomplicated wisdom of semi- team conception and Banach house conception. many of the effects are proved intimately. The booklet is addressed basically to researchers operating in semigroup concept, yet in view of the "Banach house conception" flavour of the various effects, it is going to even be of curiosity to Banach house geometers and operator theorists.
