Course Syllabus
Week 1: Topology; continuity and convergence of a sequence in a topological space.
Week 2: Metric and normed spaces; completeness
Week 3: Banach spaces; linear continuous functions; weak topology
Week 4: Hilbert spaces; The Riesz representation theorem
Week 5: The Lax-Milgram Lemma
Week 6: Lp spaces; Fischer-Riesz
Week 7: Sobolev spaces
Week 8: Use of functional analysis for Partial Differential Equations
