Functional analysis is a fundamental area of pure mathematics, with countless applications to the theory of differential equations, engineering, and physics.
After completing this subject, students will understand the fundamentals of functional analysis and the concepts associated with the dual of a linear space. They will also have an understanding of how these are used in mathematical applications in pure mathematics such as representation theory. They will have the ability to pursue further studies in this and related areas.
