OK, so I've been there before, Hilbert Space that is. You know, infinite dimensional function space. At least I thought I had, that is untill I started reading A Hilbert Space Problem Book by Halmos. So operator theory, right.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What's are bilinear, sesquilinear, conjugate linear, ect. - functionals or forms?

What's a quadradic form?

Someone, anyone, please help me: I'm lost in Hilbert Space.

Edit:I understand inner product spaces, are these things definable in such terms?
