  PlanetMath: Riesz representation theorem (of linear functionals on function spaces)
This entry should not be mistaken with the entry on the Riesz representation theorem of bounded linear functionals on an Hilbert space.
The Riesz representation theorem(s) provided here basically state that linear functionals on certain spaces of functions can be seen as integration against measures.
This is version 4 of Riesz representation theorem (of linear functionals on function spaces), born on 2007-08-12, modified 2007-08-12.

3 The representation theorem for the dual of C0(X)
This theorem establishes an important connection between a Hilbert space and its dual space: if the ground field is the real numbers, the two are isometrically isomorphic; if the ground field is the complex numbers, the two are isometrically anti-isomorphic.

 Riesz representation theorem - Definition, explanation
There are several well-known theorems in functional analysis known as the Riesz representation theorem.
This theorem establishes an important connection between a Hilbert space and its dual space: if the ground field is the real numbers, the two are isometrically isomorphic; if the ground field is the complex numbers, the two are isometrically anti-isomorphic.
The theorem is the justification for the bra-ket notation popular in the mathematical treatment of quantum mechanics.

 Bra-ket notation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In quantum mechanics, the state of a physical system is identified with a vector in a complex Hilbert space, H.
The bra is simply the conjugate transpose (also called the Hermitian conjugate) of the ket and vice versa.
The notation is justified by the Riesz representation theorem, which states that a Hilbert space and its dual space are isometrically isomorphic.

 Frigyes Riesz   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In 1945 Riesz was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the University of Budapest.
Riesz was a co-founder of functional analysis, his work of 1910 marks the start of operator theory.
Such fundamental results as the Riesz Representation theorem (the form of functionals on the space of continuous functions), the Riesz-Fischer theorem (completeness of L^2 spaces and identification of different Hilbert spaces) bear his name.

 Course Notes
A Riesz space is an ordered Q-vector space, which is a lattice (it is then automatically distributive).
Let X be a compact Hausdorff, C(X) the Riesz space of continuous function on X. One basic remark is that the Riesz space B(X) of bounded Baire functions on X is the sigma completion of C(X).
In this way both the Riesz-Markov representation theorem and the monotone convergence theorem get a natural interpretation: integral of Baire functions (and measure of Baire subsets) can be directly defined by this universal property of B(X), using the next point.

 Hilbert space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In fact, more is true: one has a complete and convenient description of its dual space (the space of all continuous linear functions from the space H into the base field), which is itself a Hilbert space.
Indeed, the Riesz representation theorem states that to every element φ of the dual H' there exists one and only one u in H such that
If a linear operator has a closed graph and is defined on all of a Hilbert space, then, by the closed graph theorem in Banach space theory, it is necessarily bounded.

If K is a compact Hausdorff space then the dual of C(K) is the space of regular Borel complex measures on K; this is what was called the Riesz representation theorem when I was young.
There are lots of theorems that have the name Riesz attached to them, and several known as the "Riesz Representation Theorem", but the particular one you're asking about in (b) says that every bounded linear functional on a Hilbert space is given by the inner product with a vector in the Hilbert space.
Frigyes Riesz was the first to prove this for general Hilbert spaces (without assuming separability): F. Riesz, "Zur Theorie des Hilbertschen Raumes", Acta Sci.
