The fundamentals of the functional analysis are given for the application to the mathematical and computing sciences. Students understand the theory of function spaces such as Lebesgue spaces and Sobolev spaces and the Fourier transform. They are able to apply them to the partial differential equations.
This course emphasizes the importance of rigorous treatment of various problems in mathematical and computing sciences by the use of concepts in the functional analysis. In particular students are able to understand the fundamentals of the operator theory, the Fourier transform and the theory of distributions, and apply them to partial differential equations and so on.
