  Functional analysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Functional analysis is the branch of mathematics, and specifically of analysis, concerned with the study of spaces of functions.
In the modern view, functional analysis is seen as the study of complete normed vector spaces over the real or complex numbers.
An important object of study in functional analysis are the continuous linear operators defined on Banach and Hilbert spaces.

 Functional Analysis
Functional Equations with Causal Operators by C. Corduneanu is intended to provide basic theory of functional equations (including functional differential equations) with causal operators.
Functional Equations with Causal Operators presents the connection between equations with causal operators and the classical types of functional equation encountered in much of the literature in this field.
Beginning Functional Analysis by Karen Saxe (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Springer) The unifying approach of functional analysis is to view functions as points in some abstract vector space and the differential and integral operators relating these points as linear trans­formations on these spaces.

 Durkheim - The Work - Functional Explanation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
It is Durkheim who clearly established the logic of the functional approach to the study of social phenomena, although functional explanations, it will be recalled, play a major part in Spencer's approach, and the lineaments of functional reasoning were already discernible in the work of Comte.
The quest for origins and historical causes, however, was to Durkheim as essential and legitimate a part of the sociological enterprise as was the analysis of functions.
As such he must be recognized as the direct ancestor of that type of functional analysis which came to dominate British anthropology under the impact of Radcliffe-Brown and Malinowski and which led.

 Functional MRI Analysis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
By doing so, we can use functional brain imaging acquired while a subject is performing a specific task (such as looking a pictures or listening to sound), to localize regions of the brain engaged by that task (such as the visual and auditory areas).
Finding the relationship between action and brain activity is complicated by the fact that the brain is always engaged in multiple cognitive processes unrelated to the task to which the subject is directing his attention.
Note that this segmentation does not follow directly from inspection of the blood flow, as illustrated in the initial part of the movie where a diveristy of activity is shown throughout the brain.

Non-surjectivity of map from integrable periodic functions to sequences going to zero at infinity.
The relevance of this to functional analysis is that projective and direct limits really do play a much larger role than often imagined, and this viewpoint can be a big help in understanding proofs.

These lead naturally to the definition of C* algebras.
Hilbert spaces can be completely classified: there is a unique Hilbert space up to isomorphism for every cardinality of the base.
Since finite-dimensional Hilbert spaces are fully understood in linear algebra, and since morphisms of Hilbert spaces can always be divided into morphisms of spaces with Aleph Null dimensionality, functional analysis of Hilbert spaces mostly deals with the unique Hilbert space of dimensionality Aleph Null, and its morphisms.
