Spectral theory of linear operators (TUD)(BM)

Course
2012-2013

The spectrum of a linear operator is the infinite-dimensional generalization of the notion of eigenvalues of a matrix. In this course we discuss the basic properties of spectra of bounded and unbounded linear operators. An introduction to Banach spaces is given, and the Baire, Banach-Steinhaus, open mapping and closed graph theorems are discussed. Applications to differential equations are discussed.
