F11FM Functional Analysis

Dr Lyonell Boulton

Course co-ordinator(s): Dr Lyonell Boulton (Edinburgh).


This module provides a course on functional analysis for mathematics students. It aims to study normed linear spaces and some of the linear operators between them and give some applications of their use. The normed linear spaces which are complete metric spaces are especially important and the first part of the course is an introduction to the theory of Lebesgue integration with the aim of providing examples of complete spaces normed linear spaces of integrable functions.
