Analysis provides the
rigourous, foundational underpinnings of calculus. It is centred around the
notion of limits: convergence within the real numbers. Related ideas, such as
infinite sums (a.k.a. series), continuity, differentiation, and Riemann
integration, are also visited in this course.
Care is needed to properly use the delicate formal concept of limits. At the same time, limits are often intuitive, and we aim to reconcile this intuition with correct mathematical reasoning. The emphasis throughout this course is on rigourous mathematical proofs, valid reasoning, and the avoidance of fallacious arguments.
