Homework 13 error!
I needed to re-order the problems for HW 13, since you might want to use that the sum of spectrally positive operators is spectrally positive in order to show that a spectrally positive operator is positive (of the form a*a). Thanks to Sam for pointing this out. So Problems 49, 50, 51, and 53 are due Monday.

Handwritten notes on Banach algebras
I've posted some handwritten notes on Banach algebras up through the holomorphic functional calculus and dependence of the spectrum on the algebra. I'll update them again after we cover the Gelfand theory. Additional sources for this material include John B. Conway's A Course in Functional Analysis.
