Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focussed on practical topics presented in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course-unit credit will be awarded on the basis of student's activity in tutorials focussed on solving tasks/problems announced by the teacher, and/or alternatively due to an idividual in-depth elaboration of selected topic(s).
The attendance in tutorials is compulsory. Examinations at a regular date are written or oral, the examinations at a resit or alternative date oral only. Examinations assess student's knowledge of the theoretical background an his/her ability to apply acquired skills independently and creatively.

Language of instruction


Work placements

Not applicable.


The aim of the course is to make students familiar with main results of linear functional analysis and their application to solution of problems of mathematical modelling.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Absence has to be made up by self-study and possibly via assigned homework.
