MATH 429  Functional Analysis and Quantum Mechanics  Units: 3.00  
A generalization of linear algebra and calculus to infinite dimensional spaces. Now questions about continuity and completeness become crucial, and algebraic, topological, and analytical arguments need to be combined. We focus mainly on Hilbert spaces and the need for Functional Analysis will be motivated by its application to Quantum Mechanics.
