MATH420-16S2 (C) Semester Two 2016

Hilbert Spaces

0.1250 EFTS
11 Jul 2016 - 13 Nov 2016


Hilbert Spaces

The theory of Hilbert spaces is fundamental in many areas of modern mathematical analysis, having a clear and easy-to-grasp geometric structure, just like Euclidean spaces. However, unlike Euclidean spaces, Hilbert spaces may be  infinite dimensional. The course will be self-contained, introducing important spaces (especially L2(m)), operators on them, and basic spectral theory. Prior exposure to MATH343 would be an asset, but is not mandatory.
