Sommario del corso
The course introduces the participants to the theory of infinite-dimensional vector spaces and of linear operators between them, with a special focus on the concepts of normed vector spaces, completeness, compactness, and the different topologies which characterize the infinite dimensional vector spaces. Applications concern various spaces of functions and operators between them (in particular, integral and differential operators). The course presents basic tools of modern mathematical analysis which are of fundamental importance in many branches of pure and applied mathematics, in particular in probability theory, statistics, numerical analysis, partial differential equations and dynamical systems.
Results of learning outcomes
The student will acquire knowledge of many basic tools which are of common use in the analysis of infintite dimensional vector spaces. In particular he will learn the theory of Banach and Hilbert spaces and their dual spaces, of linear, bounded, and compact operators, and he will know the theory of distributions (generalized functions). He will be able to apply this knowledge to solve simple problems and exercises related to the theory (in particular, to solve simple integral or differential equations) and he will be able to rigorously prove main results of the theory.

Learning assessment methods
The assessment consists in a written test followed by an oral examination, after completion of the course.
The written test consists in open questions and exercises on the topics treated in class and has a duration of 180 minutes. The mark will be expressed in thirtieth; the single points (30 in total) will be distributed to the questions and exercises on the basis of their importance and length; the final score will be given by summing up the partial scores of each question and exercise.
The oral examination is scheduled after the written test and can be given only after having passed the written test with a mark of 18 or better. The oral examination consists of questions on the written test and on the topics treated in class and listed in the examination programme (which is available to the participants on the web-site of the course).
Both written test and oral examination will result in a final mark expressed in thirtieth; the minimal mark allowed for successful assessment is 18. Otherwise, the student's performance is considered insufficient and the student has to repeat the examination (both written test and oral examination).
Both written test and oral examination must be achieved in the same examination period.
