## Functional analysis

Aim of the course is to introduce the basic tools of linear and nonlinear functional analysis, and to show applications of such techniques in analysis. The course is divided into two parts: the first one concerns spectral theory of linear operators, whose goal is to extend the classical notion of spectrum of a matrix to an infinite dimensional setting. The second part of the course is an introduction to the methods of nonlinear analysis to find zeros of a nonlinear functional over an infinite dimensional space.
