Focus of the course
Math 531 is part of a two-course sequence aimed at introducing the basic concepts of real
analysis. We start by constructing the real numbers and discussing their topology. We then
discuss continuity, differentiation, and Riemann-Stieltjes integration.
2.
Schedule
The following is a rough schedule.
(1) The Real and Complex Number System
(2) Basic Topology
(3) Numerical Sequences and Series
(4) Continuity
(5) Differentiation
(6) The Riemann-Stieltjes Integral
These are the titles of chapters in the book, and it is a good idea to read the chapter in
addition to attending lectures. Hopefully there will be time to treat other topics in addition
to those above.
3.
Grading
Homeworks will be assigned weekly and will be uploaded to the Sakai “Resources” folder.
They will be due on Thursdays before class. The grade will be based on an in-class midterm
