Course Summary

The Masters in Mathematics/Applied Mathematics offers courses, taught by experts, across a wide range. Mathematics is highly developed yet continually growing, providing new insights and applications. It is the medium for expressing knowledge about many physical phenomena and is concerned with patterns, systems, and structures unrestricted by any specific application, but also allows for applications across many disciplines.


  • The School has a strong international reputation in pure and applied mathematics research and our PGT programmes in Mathematics offer a large range of courses ranging from pure algebra and analysis to courses on mathematical biology and fluids.
  • You will be taught by experts across a wide range of pure and applied mathematics and you will develop a mature understanding of fundamental theories and analytical skills applicable to many situations.
  • You will participate in an extensive and varied seminar programme, are taught by internationally renowned lecturers and experience a wide variety of projects.
  • Our students graduate with a varied skill set, including core professional skills, and a portfolio of substantive applied and practical work.

This is a first course in functional analysis, i.e. the theory of infinite-dimensional vector spaces and of the linear maps between them. In order to be able to discuss the most relevant examples of infinite-dimensional function spaces, the course will begin with a concise development of the Lebesgue integral on R^n and more general spaces. It will go on to study basic examples of Banach spaces related to the Lebesgue integral, othonormal bases in Hilbert and inner product spaces, basic operator and spectral theory.
