Description and Goals
This course is a continuation of MAA6616. The second semester consists of an introduction to functional analysis, including Banach spaces, Hilbert spaces, and the theory of linear operators. Other topics that may be included (depending on time and interest) are harmonic analysis and the Fourier transform, the theory of distributions, the spectral theorem, and an introduction to Banach algebras.
Text: There is no required text for this course. A complete set of lecture notes will be posted on the webpage as the course progresses.
Some standard texts that treat the material covered in this course are:
Real Analysis: Modern Techniques and Their Applications by Gerald B. Folland
Real and Complex Analysis by Walter Rudin
Real Analysis by H. L. Royden
Real Analysis: Measure Theory, Integration, and Hilbert Spaces by Eli Stein and Rami Sharkachi
Some additional references for the second part of the course (on functional analysis) are:
Functional Analysis by Peter D. Lax
A Course in Functional Analysis by John B. Conway
(The current notes so far only contain sections 20—23, further sections coming soon.)
Homework 3 (due Friday 14 Feb) Problems 22.4, 22.5
Homework 2 (due Wednesday 29 January) Problems 21.3, 21.4
