The branch of modern analysis the course will pursue is Functional Analysis. Thi
s developed in the 1900's and this century as a gradual abstraction of the space
s on which Differential and Integral Equations are solved. This is the approach
the course will take. We will start with Hilbert spaces of functions and gradual
ly abstract to topological vector spaces all the time studying Linear operators
on these spaces.
