Functional analysis is the study of infinite-dimensional vector spaces, often with additional structures (inner product, norm, topology), with typical examples given by function spaces. The subject also includes the study of linear and non-linear operators on these spaces, as well as measure, ...

Polar Decomposition: Adjoint

Problem Given Hilbert spaces $\mathcal{H}$ and $\mathcal{K}$. Consider a closed operator: $$A:\mathcal{D}(A)\subseteq\mathcal{H}\to\mathcal{K}:\quad A=A^{**}$$ And its decompositions: ...

Two ODEs, why is one solution the solution of the other?

Consider the ODE: find $u:[0,T] \to \mathbb{R}^n$ s.t. $$u'(t) = F(t,u(t))$$ $$u(0) = u_0$$ given $F:[0,T]\times \mathbb{R}^n \to \mathbb{R}^n$ Caratheodory, and we know that if it has a solution, it ...

What plays the role of the identity for the generalized convolution associated to the Fourier-Bessel transform?

In traditional Fourier theory, the Dirac delta plays the role of an "identity" for the $L^1$ algebra with respect to the usual convolution. The convolution is traditionally built out of group ...
