I will aim at coordination between the two courses, and in fact you can take them in parallel. While 313 starts at the beginning, we will aim at some modern applications, including wavelets, fractals, and some engineering tools. Selection and choices depend on student demand!

MWF 3:30 in MLH 205.

Book: Analysis and Probability: Wavelets, Signals, Fractals (Graduate Texts in Mathematics 234) (Hardcover) by Palle E.T. Jorgensen (Author).

Cheap Supplement: Elementary Functional Analysis (Paperback) by Georgi E. Shilov .

Introductory text covers basic structures of mathematical analysis (linear spaces, metric spaces, normed linear spaces, etc.), differential equations, orthogonal expansions, Fourier transforms.

There will be an organizational session in the first class meeting where we will discuss selection of topics, emphasis, and course requirements etc, but by tradition for 300 level courses, they are flexible and can be tailored to your plans.

PS.: 300 does not mean that it is more difficult!

I am also happy if you ask me when run into me, or you may stop by my office, 22B.

PS.: The supplement books (the two books by Georgi E. Shilov) are in the Dover math series. Inexpensive reprints of classics!

FYI: The two seminars, Operator Theory and Math Physics for fall 2006.

One organizational meeting Tuesday 8/22 at 1:30 in VAN 301 (that's the Physics building!)

Two slots: 1:30, and 2:30.

Function spaces, operators in Hilbert space, operator theory/operator algebras, mathematical physics (especially quantum theory), representations of groups, mathematical probability theory.

The answer (to the question "What is Functional analysis?") changes over time, and some answers refer to the mathematical tools, while others to a variety of applications; see e.g., the article by Vershik (handout!)

Topics and names from Vershik's article (P.S. Functional analysis is alive and well!): S. Banach's three theorems: (a) Hahn-Banach (extensions), (b) H. Steinhaus (uniform boundedness), and (c) the inverse mapping theorem (closed graph.)
