Course description and aims

The main subject of this course is about basic concepts in infinite dimensional linear spaces and linear operators between them. After introducing basic concepts of infinite dimensional linear spaces and linear operators (normed spaces, Banach spaces, Hilbert spaces, bounded operators), we explain differences between finite and infinite dimensional spaces and learn their fundamental properties. Next we introduce concept of duality and learn its role in infinite dimension through representation theorem of linear functional and weak topology. Finally, we explain spectral theory of compact self-adjoint operators and learn their applications through concrete problems.

Functional analysis studies the algebraic, geometric and analytic structures of infinite dimensional spaces and operators acting on these spaces. This course covers the basic facts of linear functional analysis and their applications. Students will have the chance to see practical problems are solved elegantly by applying abstract notion and theorems from functional analysis.
