Summary  This course will cover the foundations of functional analysis in the context of normed linear spaces The Big Theorems (HahnBanach, Baire Category, Uniform Boundedness, Open Mapping and Closed Graph) will be presented and several applications will be analysed. The important notion of duality will be developed in Banach and Hilbert spaces and an introduction to spectral theory for compact operators will be given.
This course also introduces the essentials of modern real analysis which emerged from the work of Hardy and Littlewood in the 1930's and later from the work of Calderon and Zygmund in the 1950's. Many results and techniques from modern real analysis have become indispensable in many areas of analysis, including partial differential equations.

Learning Outcomes
1. Facility with the main, big theorems of functional analysis.
2. Ability to use duality in various contexts and theoretical results from the course in concrete situations.
3. Capacity to work with families of applications appearing in the course, particularly specific calculations needed in the context of Baire Category.
4. Facility with the maximal functions and simple singular integrals.
5. Ability to use interpolation to reduce the study of certain linear and sublinear operators to their endpoint bounds.
6. Capacity to identify the essential features in methods and arguments introduced in the course and adapt them to other settings.
7. Be able to produce examples and counterexamples illustrating the mathematical concepts presented in the course.
8. Understand the statements and proofs of important theorems and be able to explain the key steps in proofs, sometimes with variation.
