The course aims to deal with some formalisms and mathematical tools of interest to modern physics.
The student should be able to apply the acquired knowledge for the comprehension and resolution of advanced physics problems, mainly related to quantum mechanics.
Finite dimensional vector spaces, linear operators, eigenvalue problems. Recalls of measurement theory, L^p spaces. Euclidean spaces, and Hilbert space, orthonormal bases. Operators in Hilbert spaces. Fourier series and transform. Distributions. Spectral theory and methods for spectrum calculation. Some PDE of mathematical physics.
