Course content
Selective parts of functional analysis: Banach and Hilbert spaces, linear operators and functionals and their applications basis of calculus of variations. Theory of functions of a complex variable: Analytic functions, Cauchy's integral theorem and Cauchy's integral formula, residue theorem, Laurent series injective domains and inverse functions. Equations of mathematical physics: Classification of differential equations, standard and generalized solutions, Laplace and Poisson equations, wave equation, heat equation; Fourier series, Fourier and Laplace transformations; special functions. Basis of theory of distributions: Definitions, operations with distributions, Dirac delta distribution and its properties, convolution of distributions; differential equations with distributions. Group theory: Groups and their representation, groups of symmetries SU(2) and SU(3), physical applications.
