hi, does anyone know a good book or some lecture notes on the theory of frechet manifolds ?

There is the book by Kriegl and Michor called "Convenient setting of global analysis" published by the AMS. It goes much beyond Fréchet and really gives a big panorama. However, it is not easy reading and requires really some work. But I guess that is due to the subject...

    $\begingroup$ Also worth noting that it can be downloaded for free from the AMS bookstore. $\endgroup$ – Andrew Stacey Sep 8 '11 at 8:43

    $\begingroup$ @Andrew: yes that's nice. In fact, a lot of the marvelous books by Michor are available for free on his homepage. It's worth looking at... $\endgroup$ – Stefan Waldmann Sep 8 '11 at 8:49

You could try

Hamilton, Richard S. (1982). "The inverse function theorem of Nash and Moser". Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. (N.S.) 7 (1): 65–222. doi:10.1090/S0273-0979-1982-15004-2

And there's a paper by Milnor on infinite dimensional Lie groups which could be useful.
