# Functional Analysis and Harmonic Analysis

## Official Course Description

## Description

Functional analysis and harmonic analysis are fundamental tools in many mathematical applications (e.g., in field theory, solid mechanics, control theory, signal processing) and in mathematical statistics and numerical analysis. The aim of the course is to convey knowledge about basic concepts and methods, and to give the ability, both to follow discussions where these are used and to independently solve mathematical problems which arise in the applications. An important goal of the course is also to develop a power of abstraction which makes it easier to see analogies between problems from apparently different fields.

This course previously had the code FMA260.
