### Homework

Submission of the Homework is voluntary. Each week there will be 2-3 Homework exercises, one of which will be corrected and marked, but it will be disclosed only after the submission deadline which exercise is the one that will be marked. Those who achieve at least 50% of the score on average over the whole semester get a Bonus: this means that they get an improvement of one step of their final exam grade. However, only those can benefit from the Bonus whose mark without the Bonus is sufficient for passing the exam. Homework has to be submitted to the tutor of your exercise class by the deadline specified on the exercise sheet each week. Homework has to be submitted individually; group submissions are not accepted.### Literature

There are many good books and scripts. Here are some of them. Apart from Bollobas and Brokate they go considerably beyond what we can do in one semester.- Peter D. Lax: Functional Analysis (Wiley, 2002) [good two semester course]
- Gert K. Pedersen: Analysis Now (Springer, 1989) [very compact, very elegant, but quite advanced]
- John B. Conway: A Course in Functional Analysis
^{}(Springer, 1990) [standard book on the subject; good two semester course] - Dirk Werner: Funktionalanalysis (Springer, 1995) [good two semester course; German]
- Bela Bollobas: Linear Analysis
^{}(Cambridge University Press, 1990) [well written; based on a course given in Cambridge; closest to our lecture course] - Martin Brokate: Funktionalanalysis (Vorlesungsskript) [good German script based on the course taught in WS13/14 at TUM]
