Operator theory is the branch of functional analysis that focuses on bounded linear operators, but it includes closed operators and nonlinear operators. Operator theory is also concerned with the study of algebras of operators.

### Spectrum and resolvent of an operator

So for the operator $A:l_2(\Bbb C)\to l_2(\Bbb C)$ defined as: $$A(x_1,x_2,\cdots,x_m,x_{m+1},x_{m+2},\cdots) = (x_1,x_2,\cdots,x_m,0,0,\cdots)$$ We can find the adjoint operator $A^*$ by looking ...

### Weak convergence = norm convergence for trace class operators?

Given a (separable) Hilbertspace $H$, I look at the traceclass operators $\mathfrak{S}_1$. I recall the fact that the weak convergence implies norm convergence in the sequence space $\mathcal{l}^1$. ...

### Show that the following operator (on a Hilbert space) is continuous.

"Let $\mathcal H$ be a complex Hilbert space and let $y\in\mathcal H.$ Show that the linear transformation $f:\mathcal H\to\mathbb C$ defined by, $f(x)=\langle x,y\rangle$ is continuous." ...

### Approximation property for Banach space and $l^{p}$

Let's consider a compact operator $T: X \rightarrow l^{p}, 1 \leq p < \infty$. I would like to check, whether it's possible to approximate $T$ by the operators of a finite rank with respect to an ...

### Is there any standard name for this theorem about extension of bounded linear operators in normed spaces without changing the norm?

Let $X$ and $Y$ be normed spaces, both real or both complex; let, in addition, $Y$ be a Banach space; let $V$ be a (vector) subspace of $X$; let $T \colon V \to Y$ be a bounded linear operator; ...

### Possible flaw in “proof” that a sum of two compact operators is compact

If X and Y are Banach spaces, and $A: X \to Y$, $B: X \to Y$ are both compact operators, then $A + B$ is compact. A + B is compact if and only if for every bounded sequence $\lbrace x_n \rbrace$ ...
As an exercise I tried to prove the following theorem: If $X,Y$ are Banach spaces and $u \in B(X,Y)$ is a bounded linear operator then the following are equivalent: (1) $u$ is compact ...
### In a normed vector space X: $x_n \to x$ weakly iff $d(x_n) \to d(x) ~\forall d \in D$, $D$ dense in $X^*$
Good day, I have the following task: Let $(x_n)_{n \in \mathbb{N}}$ be a sequence in the normed vector space $(X, || \cdot || )$ and let $x \in X$. Show that the following are equivalent: (i) $x_n$ ...
