Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

This content is ...

Affiliated with (What does "Affiliated with" mean?)

This content is either by members of the organizations listed or about topics related to the organizations listed. Click each link to see a list of all content affiliated with the organization.

Hilbert Spaces

Module by: Justin Romberg. E-mail the author

Summary: This module will provide an introduction to the concepts of Hilbert spaces.

Hilbert Spaces

A vector space SS with a valid inner product defined on it is called an inner product space, which is also a normed linear space. A Hilbert space is an inner product space that is complete with respect to the norm defined using the inner product. Hilbert spaces are named after David Hilbert, who developed this idea through his studies of integral equations. We define our valid norm using the inner product as:

x=x,x x x x
(1)
Hilbert spaces are useful in studying and generalizing the concepts of Fourier expansion, Fourier transforms, and are very important to the study of quantum mechanics. Hilbert spaces are studied under the functional analysis branch of mathematics.

Examples of Hilbert Spaces

Below we will list a few examples of Hilbert spaces. You can verify that these are valid inner products at home.

  • For Cn n , x,y=yTx=( y 0 ¯ y 1 ¯ y n 1 ¯ ) x 0 x 1 x n 1 = i =0n1 x i y i ¯ x y y x y 0 y 1 y n 1 x 0 x 1 x n 1 i n 1 0 x i y i
  • Space of finite energy complex functions: L 2 R L 2 f,g=ftgt¯d t f g t f t g t
  • Space of square-summable sequences: 2 Z 2 x,y= i =xiyi¯ x y i x i y i

'My Favorites' is a special kind of lens which you can use to bookmark modules and collections. 'My Favorites' can only be seen by you, and collections saved in 'My Favorites' can remember the last module you were on. You need an account to use 'My Favorites'.
