Course description and aims

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.

Student learning outcomes

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.

Keywords

Function spaces, Inequalities for functions, Fourier transform, Distributions, Partial differential equations

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

This lecture is devoted to the fundamentals to the functional analysis. The Fourier transform and the theory of distributions is given for the applications to the partial differential equations. In order to cultivate a better understanding, some exercises are given.
