MATH 784: Nonlinear Functional Analysis

Important: For the most up-to-date information, refer to the official George Mason Course Catalog

General Information

Credits: 3


Techniques in nonlinear functional analysis with applications. Contraction mapping principle, Frechet and higher derivatives, the implicit function theorem, Lyapunov-Schmidt method, and bifurcation theory. Finite and infinite dimensional degree theory with applications in partial differential equations. Notes: Different backgrounds may be appropriate, but generally, a student is expected to be an upper level graduate student who has already taken Linear Analysis. Since the applications given in the course are for differential equations, some familiarity with differential equations is extremely useful. Offered by Mathematics. May not be repeated for credit.
Recommended Prerequisite: MATH 675 or permission of instructor.
Registration Restrictions:

Enrollment is limited to Graduate or Non-Degree level students.

Students in a Non-Degree Undergraduate degree may not enroll.

Schedule Type: Lecture
This course is graded on the Graduate Regular scale.
