Description:  Aims: To introduce and study the theory of infinitedimensional normed vector spaces, the linear mappings between them, and spectral theory.
Learning Outcomes: By the end of the unit, students should be able to:
* State and prove the principal theorems relating to Banach spaces, bounded linear operators, and dual spaces.
* Apply these notions and theorems to simple examples.
Skills: Numeracy T/F,A
Problem Solving T/F,A
Written Communication F (on problem sheets)
Content: Normed vector spaces and their metric structure. Banach spaces. Examples. Riesz Lemma. The space of bounded linear operators. Dual spaces and second duals. Uniform Boundedness Theorem. Open Mapping Theorem. Closed Graph Theorem. Zorn's Lemma. HahnBanach Theorem. Canonical embedding, reflexivity. Weak and weak * convergence. BanachAlaoglu Theorem.
Applications and further topics, which might include: finitedimensional subspaces,
projections, separating hyperplane theorems.
