This course extends methods of linear algebra and mathematical analysis to spaces of functions, in which the interaction between algebra and mathematical analysis allows powerful methods to be developed. The course will be mathematically sophisticated and will use ideas both from linear algebra and analysis.



Complex Analysis (MATH-306)
