Lecture: MWF 11:00AM--Noon in 214 CBB

This is the second course in the graduate Functional Analysis sequence. We will continue our study of spectral theory introduced last fall, and use the spectral theorem and functional calculus to study commutative C*-algebras. We will then examine general (not necessarily commutative) C*-algebras, and study representations of C*-algebras, finite-dimensional and approximately finite-dimensional (AF) C*-algebras, tensor products of C*-algebras, and group C*-algebras.
