 Summary
 This text provides an introduction to some of the bestknown fixedpoint theorems, with an emphasis on their interactions with topics in analysis. The level of exposition increases gradually throughout the book, building from a basic requirement of undergraduate proficiency to graduatelevel sophistication. Appendices provide an introduction to (or refresher on) some of the prerequisite material and exercises are integrated into the text, contributing to the volume’s ability to be used as a selfcontained text. Readers will find the presentation especially useful for independent study or as a supplement to a graduate course in fixedpoint theory. The material is split into four parts: the first introduces the Banach ContractionMapping Principle and the Brouwer FixedPoint Theorem, along with a selection of interesting applications; the second focuses on Brouwer’s theorem and its application to John Nash’s work; the third applies Brouwer’s theorem to spaces of infinite dimension; and the fourth rests on the work of Markov, Kakutani, and Ryll–Nardzewski surrounding fixed points for families of affine maps
