Syllabus -

An introductory course to functional analysis focused on the extension of the results of linear algebra to infinite-dimensional spaces and

on applications of general theoretical results within partial differential equations.

3. Bounded linear operators

Principle of uniform boundedness, open mapping theorem and closed graph theorem. Adjoint operator, compact operator.

4. Hilbert spaces

Orthogonal projections, Riesz representation theorem. Lax-Milgram lemma and its application in the theory of partial differential equations. Introduction to Sobolev spaces. Compact operators.
