Instructor: E.R. Vrscay

Department of Applied Mathematics

University of Waterloo


Course Information

Description

This is a core course for graduate students in Applied Mathematics. It will also be of interest to students in Engineering and Science who wish to understand and use methods from classical analysis as well as functional analysis. Basic concepts from functional analysis are introduced and illustrated with applications in various areas such as mechanics, control theory, boundary value problems for PDEs, numerical analysis and quantum mechanics.
