Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • 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

Upon completion of this module, the students have studied and understand the mathematical concepts of infinite-dimensional spaces with a special emphasis on the analytical aspects. They have gained the basic analytical tools required for solving differential and integral equations in theory and application. They are able to name and to prove the essential statements of the lecture as well as to classify and to explain the connections.

By completing exercises, the students have developed a skilled, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and techniques taught in the lecture. In addition, they have learnt how to apply these techniques to new problems, analyze them and develop solution strategies.
