Spectral Theory in Hilbert spaces

This semester I am teaching a course on “Spectral theory in Hilbert spaces”, which is more or less a follow-up to the functional analysis course of the previous semester.

I will be trying to keep up with lecture notes as I go along, although I anticipate that it will be difficult to reach the finish line at the end of the semester in a decently polished state…

There is an ETH web site for the course, with a link to the lecture notes, which can also be downloaded directly here. Since they will be updated fairly regularly, I have also created a special page on the blog where I will indicate new updates and their approximate content whenever there is a non-trivial change. Any comments on the notes should go there for ease of reference…

Note that the ETH page also has links to the weekly exercise sheets, and to their corrections (appearing approximately one week after).
