Course objectives
In order to reach the more interesting and useful ideas, we shall adopt a fairlybrutal approach to some early material. Lengthy proofs will sometimes be leftout, though full versions will be made available. By the end of the course, youshould have a good understanding of 
normed vector spaces 
Hilbert and Banachspaces 
fixed point theorems 
and examples of 
function spaces 
. These ideas will beillustrated with applications to differential equations.
You do not need to buy a book for this course, but the following may be useful forbackground reading. If you do buy something, the starred books are recommended[1]
Functional Analysis 
, W. Rudin, McGraw–Hill (1973). This book is thorough,sophisticated and demanding.[2]
Functional Analysis 
, F. Riesz and B. Sz.-Nagy, Dover (1990). This is a classictext, also much more sophisticated than the course.[3]*
Foundations of Modern Analysis 
, A. Friedman, Dover (1982). Cheap andcheerful, includes a useful few sections on background.[4]*
Essential Results of Functional Analysis 
, R.J. Zimmer, University of ChicagoPress (1990). Lots of good problems and a useful chapter on background.[5]*
Functional Analysis in Modern Applied Mathematics 
, R.F. Curtain and A.J.Pritchard, Academic Press (1977). This book is closest to the course.[6]*
Linear Analysi
, B. Bollobas, Cambridge University Press (1995). This book isexcellent but makes heavy demands on the reader.
