Teaching methods

Lectures. During the lectures the basic results of the functional analysis will be analyzed and discussed. Many examples will be provided to show how and where the abstract results can be applied to make the students understand better the relevance of what they are studying.

Assessment methods and criteria

The exam consists of two parts: a written part and an oral part. The exam is aimed at evaluating the knowledge of the abstract results seen during the course, their proofs and the skills of the students in using such results.
