Linear Algebra, a knowledge of the basic tools of Functional Analysis, Lebesgue integration theory and the fundamentals of Spectral Theory.

Verification of learning will consist of two parts:

1) A short written thesis about a chosen topic to be exposed to the class as a lecture.
2) A traditional oral exam, during which the student will have to show that she/he has acquired the basic notions and the proofs of the main theorems.

Voto Finale

The purpose of the teaching is to let the student acquire, via both abstract results and concrete examples, the basic concepts from the theory of locally compact groups and their representations. The course aims also to introduce applications of Operator Algebra Theory, Harmonic Analysis and Representation Theory. At the end of the course we expect that:

1) The student has acquired the fundamental notions pertaining to the above mentioned fields
2) On the base of the proofs illustrated during the lectures, the student is able to make by him/herself reasonings of medium complexity that lead him/her to deduce abstract properties of the above mentioned objects;
3) The student is able to investigate the main properties of the objects alluded to above in concrete situations.
