MATH 531: BASIC ANALYSIS I Instructor: Jayce R. Getz Coordinates: TuTh 8:30AM-9:45PM Physics 119 Course text: Rudin, Principles of Mathematical Analysis Office hour: TuTh 10:00-11:00AM or by appointment. On Thursday, students in Math 601 will have priority. 1. 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
