Class on Functionnal Analysis on Coursera

Two sessions of the Coursera MOOC on Functional Analysis have finished and we would like to send the 40,000 participants. We hope you enjoyed the course and learned some new things in this area of mathematics. Certificates of Accomplishments have now been sent to the students who passed the class.

We had several requests to obtain the videos and PDF material. We do not distribute these documents because the course was design as a whole. Nevertheless, we are aware that some students have ripped the videos during the time of the MOOC and are making it available online (including on YouTube). We are not taking action to take down this material, for now.
