Course objectives
The goal of the course is to get students acquainted with basic linear functional analysis including the theory of distributions (generalized functions).
  • 1. Metric spaces: metric and its definition, examples, metric derived from a norm, inner product spaces; topology of metric spaces: open sets, convergence, continuous mappings, compactness, separability, connectedness; uniform continuity and completeness, Baire's category theorem.
    2. Hilbert and Banach spaces: Hilbert space, definition, examples; closest point theorem and Riesz representation theorem; spectral theory for compact operators, Fredholm's integral equations; Banach spaces: definition and examples; separation of convex sets and Hahn-Banach theorem; dual spaces, weak convergence and Banach-Steinhaus theorem; open mapping theorem and closed graph theorem.
    3. Theory of distributions: vector space topology generated by a system of seminorms and its fundamental properties, strict inductive limit of locally convex topological vector spaces; gauge functional and Kolmogorov's criterion, countably normed spaces, examples of locally convex function spaces; dual spaces and distributions, operations with distributions; tempered distributions and Fourier transform.
