This book deals with the determinants of linear operators in Euclidean, Hilbert and Banach spaces. Determinants of operators give us an important tool for solving linear equations and invertibility conditions for linear operators, enable us to describe the spectra, to evaluate the multiplicities of eigenvalues, etc. We derive upper and lower bounds, and perturbation results for determinants, and discuss applications of our theoretical results to spectrum perturbations, matrix equations, two parameter eigenvalue problems, as well as to differential, difference and functional-differential equations.

"[This] book is well written and some long computations are presented in a convincing manner. This book will surely be useful to specialists in operator theory, as well as to those interested in its applications, especially for the treatment of the determinants associated to Nakano and Orlicz type operators, among others. Graduate students may also be interested in some chapters of this work, in particular those containing improvements of certain classical results."
