Spectral theorem

It was pointed out to me by Vivian Popoola that the proof of the spectral theorem in the online notes has many misprints. It also looks a bit more complicated than necessary. So I wrote up a self-contained proof here following what was done in the lectures. Look also at the `Supplementary note on self-adjoint maps’ on the course webpage for related information.
