Advanced Functional Analysis, Spectral theory and Applications (MATH6214)

All activities that form part of this course will be delivered remotely in Sem 2 2020.

This course is intended both for continuing mathematics students and for other students using mathematics at a high level in theoretical physics, engineering and information technology, and mathematical economics.

Topics to be covered include:

• Measure theory
• Functions of bounded variation over R
• Absolute continuity and integration
• Examples of more general measures (Radon, Hausdorff, probability measures)
• Fubini-Tonelli theorem
• Banach spaces and linear operators
• Classical function and sequence spaces
• Hahn-Banach theorem
• Closed graph and open mapping theorems
• Uniform boundedness principles
• Sequential version of Banach-Alaoglu theorem
• Spectrum of an operator and analysis of the compact self-adjoint case
• Fredholm alternative theorem.

Note: Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates but will be assessed separately.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Explain the fundamental concepts of functional analysis and their role in modern mathematics and applied contexts
2. Demonstrate accurate and efficient use of functional analysis techniques
3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analyzing, proving and explaining concepts from functional analysis
4. Apply problem-solving using functional analysis techniques applied to diverse situations in physics, engineering and other mathematical contexts

Indicative Assessment

Assessment will be based on:

• Three assignments (30% total; LO 1-4)
• Essay paper (20%; LO 1-4)
• Take home exam (50%; LO 1-4)

In response to COVID-19: Please note that Semester 2 Class Summary information (available under the classes tab) is as up to date as possible. Changes to Class Summaries not captured by this publication will be available to enrolled students via Wattle.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Three lectures per week, workshops by arrangement.
