Functional analysis [MA3001], complex analysis [MA2006/MA2008]


Topics: Banach algebras and their spectral theory; spectral theorem in Hilbert spaces; unbounded operators; semigroups

Summary: The central topic of the lecture will be spectral theory and spectral calculus. This is an indispensable technique for the solution of linear evolution equations which arise in many applications ranging from mathematical physics and biology to engineering. The course will follow a top-down approach to the topic starting from the spectral theory in Banach algebras down to the theory of self-adjoint (possibly unbounded) operators in a Hilbert space. In the course of the lecture, applications of these techniques with an emphasis on the area of mathematical physics will be covered.
