  • Syllabus (tentative: the list below will grow as the semester progresses )

    Your lecture notes will cover all the material (except for those results assigned for self-study) in the syllabus. The occasional chapter references are to more extensive explanations, and refer to Rudin's Principles.

    Aspects of the theory of sets, relations and functions

    The natural numbers, the principle of mathematical induction, Peano arithmetic

    Number systems, the rational numbers, fields, ordered fields and the "usual order" on the rationals

    The least upper bound property, the real line, construction of the real line (Chapter 1: Appendix)

    The Archimedean property of the real line, complex numbers, Euclidean spaces, the Cauchy–Schwarz inequality and associated inequalities (the section The Complex Field in Chapter 1)

    Countable and uncountable sets, cardinality

    Metric spaces, open and closed sets in metric spaces and associated concepts

    Compact sets, the characterisation of compact subsets of Euclidean spaces

    Cantor sets, perfect sets (the section Perfect Sets in Chapter 2), connected sets

    Sequences and convergence

    Subsequences, subsequential limits, the limits of special sequences (the section Some Special Sequences in Chapter 3)

    Cauchy sequences, completeness, sufficient conditions for completeness

    Infinite series and their convergence, criteria for convergence

    Convergence tests for non-negative series, criterion for summability of the series of pth powers

    The extended real number system, limits at infinity, upper and lower limits

    Absolute convergence, the Ratio and Root Tests, conditional convergence, using convergence of series to derive limits of sequences

    Topics listed up to this point comprised the syllabus of the mid-term examination.

    The limit of a function: various equivalent definitions, the algebra of limits

    Continuous functions

    Continuity and compactness, attainment of extreme values, uniform continuity

    Continuity and connectedness, the intermediate-value theorem, and applications

    Left- and right-han limits (as in the section Discontinuities in Chapter 1)
