MX3535: ANALYSIS IV (2018-2019)

Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07

Course Overview

Analysis provides the rigorous, foundational underpinnings of calculus. This course builds on MX3035 Analysis III, continuing the development of multivariable calculus, with a focus on multivariable integration. Hilbert spaces (infinite dimensional Euclidean spaces) are also introduced.

Students will see the benefit of having acquired the formal reasoning skills developed in Analysis I, II, and III, as it enables them to work with increasingly abstract concepts and deep results. Techniques of rigorous argumentation continue to be a prominent part of the course.
