## The chair of Theory of functions and functional analysis

The chair of theory of functions and functional analysis was founded in 1939 by Academicianian A.I.Huseynov, who had directed it till 1965.

In 1965-1992 prof. A.Sh. Habibzade and prof. O.A.Valiyev were the heads of the chair1992-1996. From 1996 up to now the chair is headed by d.p.-m.s., prof. A.M.Ahmadov.

The staff of the chair for now: d.p.-m.s., prof. A.M.Ahmadov (head of the chair), d.p.-m.s., prof. C.I. Mammadkhanov, d.p.-m.s., prof. S.S.Mirzayev, d.p.-m.s., prof. M.B.Rahimov, d.p.-m.s., prof.N.M.Suleymanov, c.p.-m.s., assoc.prof. M.A.Taghiyeva, c.p.-m.s., assoc.prof. R.M.Babayev, c.p.-m.s., assoc.prof. E.A.Rzayev, c.p.-m.s., assoc.prof. T.B.Gasimov, c.p.-m.s., lecturer H.S. Masimova, lecturer M.I. Ismayilov.

In the chair the bachelors study next branches of sciences: theory of functions of real variables; functional analysis and theory of functions of complex variables; the masters study the basic and special courses: spectral theory of linear operators, linear equation in Banach space, theory of functions of several variables, supplementary chapters of functional analysis, Banach algebra, theory of generalized functions, problems of approximations in complex plane, entire functions and their applications, ergodic theory, problems of solvability of operator-differential equations.

The collaborators of the chair obtained important results on spectral theory of linear operators, theory of differential equations with operator coefficients and theory of approximations of functions.

More than one hundred articles, tens of monographs, text-books, training appliances and methodical instructions of teaching of branches were published in the chair.
