MX3035: ANALYSIS III (2017-2018)

Last modified: 23 Aug 2017 15:33

Course Overview


Analysis provides the rigourous, foundational underpinnings of calculus. The focus of this course is multivariable analysis, building on the single-variable theory from MA2009 Analysis I and MA2509 Analysis II. Concepts and results around multivariable differentiation are comprehensively established, laying the ground for multivariable integration in MX3535 Analysis IV.

As in Analysis I and II, abstract reasoning and proof-authoring are key skills emphasised in this course.
