Course Outline and Details
TEXT: Primary: Real Analysis with Real Applications, by Davidson and Donsig, Prentice Hall, 2001.
“Early chapters cover basics of real analysis, using a streamlined approach that gets to the applications quickly, with some material flagged as advanced. More than half the book consists of independent chapters on topics ranging from Fourier series and polynomial approximation to discrete dynamical systems and convex optimization. Each application presents a number of results and shows how these results depend on fundamental ideas of real analysis. The role of normed vector spaces is emphasized, and they provide a framework for most of the applications.”
Secondary: Real Analysis by Bruckner, Bruckner and Thomson, Prentice Hall, 1997.
APPROACH: I will try to add a symbolic computational component to each topic and problem set. The text allows for quite ambitious and various additional topic projects.
GRADING is as follows
100% will be judged on Problem Sets and Classroom Participation
