MTH640 Real Analyses

Lead Faculty: Dr. Igor Ya Subbotin

Course Description

Topics include real and complex number systems, elements of point-set topology of Euclidean space, numerical sequences and series, continuity and differentiability for functions of one and several variables. The Riemann-Stieltjes integral as a generalization of the Riemann integral, sequences and series of functions, and Fourier series will be studied as well.
