Course description and aims

Main subjects of this course are nonlinear functional analysis and its application to elliptic partial differential equations.
Beginning with several fundamental results in (linear) functional analysis applied to linear partial differential equations, we learn fixed point theorems and their applications to nonlinear partial differential equations.
This course is followed by Advanced topics in Analysis F1.

Student learning outcomes

Understanding of the basic theory of nonlinear functional analysis including fixed point theorems and their applications to nonlinear partial differential equations


elliptic partial differential equations, functional analysis, fixed point theorems

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This is a standard lecture course. Occasionally I will give problems for reports.
