Course content

The course gives an introduction to more advanced topics in functional analysis and measure theory. Among the topics covered are: more Banach space theory (including the Banach-Steinhaus theorem, the open mapping theorem, the closed graph theorem and the Hahn-Banach theorem); more measure and integration theory (including product measures, Tonelli's and Fubini's theorems, signed measures, complex measures, Hahn's, Jordan's and Radon-Nikodym's theorems, conditional expectations, L^p /L^q-duality and Riesz' representation theorem, modes of convergence for measurable functions).

Learning outcome

The course presents fundamental results of functional analysis and measure theory, and is the basis for further work in partial differential equations, stochastic analysis, and operator algebras. The students will learn to work with abstract measure spaces and with linear operators between infinite dimensional spaces.
