In this class we give an introduction to the theory of linear operators on Banach spaces.
In particular we consider spaces of continuous and integrable functions and integral operators on such spaces. Since these spaces are infinite dimensional careful considerations of convergence and compactness in Banach spaces are necessary.
In the case of Hilbert space (spaces with an inner product) one obtains elegant generalizations of the theory of euclidean spaces known from Linear Algebra and Analysis courses.
In many ways functional analysis provides basic concepts and methods used in advanced classes on partial differential equations, numerical analysis or stochastics. We also plan to offer a sequel to this course in the summer semester 08.
