Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)
  • Examination number (Study achievement): 84020 ("Exercise Class Functional Analysis")
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


  • Hahn-Banach theorem and its applications,
  • Baire category theorem and its applications (uniform boundedness principle, Banach-Steinhaus-Theorem, open mapping theorem, inverse mapping theorem, closed graph theorem),
  • Weak convergence (Banach-Alaoglu theorem, reflexive Banach spaces, Mazur lemma and its applications),
  • Projections (closed complement theorem),
  • Bounded operators (adjoint operator, spectrum, resolvent, normal operators),
  • Compact operators (Fredholm operators, Fredholm alternative and its applications, spectral theorem(Riesz-Schauder) and its application to normal operators),
  • Unbounded operators (graph, symmetric and self-adjoint operators).

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students have studied and understand the mathematical concepts in infinite-dimensional spaces with a special emphasis on analytical aspects. They have gained the basic analytical tools required for solving differential and integral equations in theory and application.


  • H.-W. Alt: Lineare Funktionalanalysis,
  • H. Heuser: Funktionalanalysis,
  • M. Reed, M, B. Simon: Functional Analysis I,
  • D. Werner: Funktionalanalysis.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture; Exercise material is provided.
