Functional analysis seminar



The spring 2021 issue of the seminar has been cancelled because of covid.

Admission requirements

National master course on Functional Analysis or comparable. A first introductory course, such as the Leiden Linear Analysis course, is usually not sufficient.


The functional analysis seminar is intended for students, PhD-students, and staff, on a topic to be determined during the fall semester. The sessions are on Fridays from 14.00-17.00, but the dates in the official schedule are only indicative. The precise dates will be determined in accordance with the participants’ possibilities.

People interested from other universities are most welcome to attend. Please note the prerequisites.

Please note

If you are a student, but not from Leiden, contact your study advisor or exam committee beforehand about the eligibility of this seminar for your own programme, in order to prevent unwanted surprises. If your institute should require this, then, although this is not the preferred method, a grade could be supplied instead of a "pass".

Course objectives

Mode of instruction
