Penn State REU 2011

COURSE DESCRIPTION: I will spend the
first couple days on basic linear algebra (vector spaces, linear
operators, etc.), but this is only to motivate and illustrate the
functional analysis that will follow. We will travel as far into
functional analysis as the students' background and interest allow,
hopefully covering some fundamental results such as the Hahn-Banach
theorem.
