  • The main goal of the course is to give a presentation of relevant applications of the abstract principles of functional analysis to a large variety of problems in mathematical analysis.
  • The course treats applications of

    - the Hahn-Banach theorem, weak convergence and compactness,

    - the Riesz representation theorem,

    - the use of orthonormal bases,

    - boundedness, compactness and spectra of integral operators,

    - the spectral theorem for compact, self-adjoint operators.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to analyse problems in mathematical analysis using methods from functional analysis,

    be able to give examples of important applications of the abstract methods and principles of functional analysis,

    be able to give a detailed account of the theory behind methods described in the course,

    be able to give an account for research aspects within the subject and relate it to relevant problems within an independent work.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to critically and systematically integrate knowledge from different areas of mathematical analysis to analyze and solve complex problems using the principles of functional analysis,

    be able to independently identify, formulate and solve relevant problems, as well as to plan and execute qualified tasks within a given time frame.
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to argue for the important role of the principles of functional analysis in different areas of research in mathematics and physics,

    be able to identify their own need for further knowledge and take responsibility for developing their own knowledge.
