Course Information

Description:   This course is a rigorous treatment of analysis required for a fuller understanding of the calculus, as well as preparation for graduate school in mathematics and other disciplines requiring analytical and numerical solution of equations arising from mathematical modeling. Standard topics of an introductory analysis course will be covered, along with additional concepts which do not necessarily follow the text. Attendence is required and the exams will be over the lectures and homework. The course topics include:

• Countable and uncountable sets, the real numbers, order, least upper bounds, and the Archimedean property.
• Metric spaces: topology, open and closed sets, convergent sequences, completeness, compactness and the Heine-Borel Theorem for the real line, connectedness.
• Limits; Continuous functions and their properties, limits, continuous functions on a compact metric space, continuous functions on a connected metric space; intermediate and extreme value theorems, uniform continuity, monotone functions and inverses.
• Derivatives and their properties, the chain rule, Rolle's theorem and the Mean Value Theorem, Taylor's theorem, L'Hospital's rule.
• The Riemann integral, its properties, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

Grading scheme: Three tests, each counting 20% of the final grade. The homework, turned in on a regular basis, counts 15%, with the comprehensive final exam counting 25%. Make-up tests are not normally given. Graduate Students will be required to complete additional homework and problems on Tests and the Final Exam.

Attendance: Classroom attendance is required according to official university 10% policy. Make-up tests are not normally given for missed examinations.
