Analysis provides the rigourous, foundational underpinnings of calculus. This course builds on the foundations in Analysis I, and explores the notions of Riemann integrability, Cauchy sequences, sequences of functions, and power series.
The techniques of careful rigourous argument seen in Analysis I will be further developed. Such techniques will be applied to solve problems that would otherwise be inaccessible. As in Analysis I, the emphasis of this course is on valid mathematical proofs and correct reasoning.

- Differentiation of functions of one variable: basic definitions and properties, chain rule, basic results on differentiable functions, Rolle's Theorem, Mean Value Theorem.
- Riemann integrability: Riemann sums, basic properties, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, improper integrals - Sequences of functions: pointwise convergence, uniform convergence, properties of limits of functions, series of functions
- Power series: convergence, continuity, differentiability, integrability, Taylor series
To further develop understanding of the concepts, techniques, and tools of calculus. Calculus is the mathematical study of variation. This course emphasises differential and integral calculus, sequences and series of functions.
