Leerdoelen  1. The student can prove that a given linear space is a Banach space or a Hilbert space. The student can connect the material of this course with topics from the earlier courses Linear Algebra, Analysis, and Metric Spaces. 2. The student can calculate the norm, adjoint, inverse, the spectrum, and the resolvent of a concrete linear operator. 3. The student can formulate the main theorems treated in the course, such as the HahnBanach theorem, Baire's theorem, Zabreiko's lemma, the open mapping theorem, the closed graph theorem, and the uniform boundedness principle. The student is able to apply these theorems in concrete problems and derive simple corollaries from them. 4. The student can give examples of dual spaces and (non)reflexive spaces. The student can determine of a given sequence whether it converges in the strong, weak, or weak* sense. 5. The student can apply the methods of functional analysis to concrete problems in mathematics, such as SturmLiouville boundary value problems and integral equations. 

Omschrijving  This course covers the basic concepts of infinitedimensional linear spaces and the linear maps between them. In particular, the theory of Banach and Hilbert spaces and the operators on them are discussed. Functional analysis is a basic theory for many areas of physics and mathematics (quantum mechanics, partial differential equations, numerical solution methods, etc.). Within this framework attention will be paid to the theory of function spaces. Basic definitions and applications of operators will be discussed: continuity, boundedness, norms, compactness, adjoint, and spectrum. Applications to integral and differential equations are discussed. Further topics include selfadjoint operators, projections, the HahnBanach theorem, the open mapping theorem, the closed graph theorem, the uniform boundedness principle, and weak convergence.
