AS/SC/AK/ MATH 3210 3.0 W

Principles of Mathematical Analysis

      Rigorous presentation, with proofs, of fundamental concepts of analysis: limits, continuity, differentiation, integration, fundamental theorem, power series, uniform convergence.
      The origins of some ideas of mathematical analysis are lost in antiquity. About 300 years ago, Newton and Leibniz independently created the calculus. This was used with great success, but for the most part uncritically, for about 200 years. In the last century, mathematicians began to examine the foundations of analysis, giving the concepts of function, continuity, convergence, derivative and integral the firm basis they required. These developments continue today, for example with the study of calculus on infinite dimensional spaces.
      This course is a continuation of first and second year calculus. The material will be presented in a rigorous manner, putting emphasis on careful mathematical arguments, proofs and illustrative examples. The objectives of the course include improved skill at understanding and writing mathematical arguments as well as understanding of the concepts of the course. The course will provide a useful theoretical background for a variety of higher level and graduate courses including those in analysis, probability, topology, mathematical statistics, and numerical analysis.
      The textbook will be Bartle and Sherbert, Introduction to Real Analysis.
