Undergraduate course

Real Analysis

Semester of Instruction


Objectives and Content

The course includes axioms of real number systems, uniform convergence of sequences and series of functions, equicontinuity, compact and complete metric spaces, the inverse function theorem, the Stone-Weierstrass theorem and contraction maps.

Learning Outcomes

After completed course, the students are expected to be able to

  • Describe the basic differences between the rational and the real numbers.
  • Understand and perform simple proofs
  • Answer question concerning uniform convergence of concrete numerical sequences and series
  • Give the definition of concepts related to metric spaces, such as continuity, compactness, completeness and connectedness
  • Give the essence of the proof of Stone-Weierstrass' theorem, the contraction theorem as well as the existence of convergent subsequences using equicontinuity.
