Course: Functional Analysis II (WS2019/2020)

An important result of linear algebra is that every self-adjoint linear map on a finite-dimensional inner-product space can be represented by a diagonal matrix. In this course we will study the spectral theorem, which generalises this result to self-adjoint operators on infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces, including to unbounded operators. We will also acquire the necessary tools to use this result in applications, for example to partial differential equations and quantum mechanics. These include the Fourier transform, the theory of self-adjoint extensions, and quadratic forms.

Lectures: Wednesdays 08:30-10:00 Room B 039 and Thursdays 10h-12h Room B 132.
