CSE 386M CSE 386M. Functional Analysis in Theoretical Mechanics. 3 Hours.
Same as Engineering Mechanics 386M. An introduction to modern concepts in functional analysis and linear operator theory, with emphasis on their application to problems in theoretical mechanics; topological and metric spaces, norm linear spaces, theory of linear operators on Hilbert spaces, applications to boundary value problems in elasticity and dynamical systems. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics 386M and Engineering Mechanics 386M may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Graduate standing, Engineering Mechanics 386L, and Mathematics 365C.
