An introduction to Banach and Hilbert spaces, linear operators and their applications.
MATH 301 extends the techniques of linear algebra and real analysis to study problems of an intrinsically infinite-dimensional nature. They are indispensable tools in the theories of partial differential equations, quantum mechanics, Fourier analysis (with applications to signal processing and heat transfer) and many areas of pure mathematics, including topology, operator algebra and even number theory.
The paper will introduce students to the basic techniques of functional analysis. The paper will be grounded in applications that will reinforce the students' understanding of linear algebra and real analysis; and will give them training in modern mathematical reasoning and writing.
