Course Objectives
Learn the fundamental structures of Functional Analysis. Get familiar with the main examples of functional spaces, in particular with the theory of Hilbert spaces and Lebesgue spaces. Get familiar with the basic notions of operator theory. Be able to frame a functional equation in an abstract functional setting.
Course Content

- Basic of Topological Vector Spaces, Normed and Banach Spaces, Linear Operators and linear functionals.
- Hilbert Spaces
- Weak topology, Weak * topology, weak compactness
- Applications of Baire Category in Functional Analysis: Uniform Boundedness, Open Mapping,
Closed Graph, Inverse Mapping.
- Banach and Hilbert adjointness, self-adjointness
- Compact Operators
