The summer bootcamp helps entering graduate students prepare for the Basic Qualifying Exam. The exam covers material in analysis and linear algebra. In this part of the bootcamp we work on the topics in analysis.

Lectures and homework in the class will cover a sampling of key results in
topics from the exam syllabus, and many questions
from past exams.
But we will not be able to cover all the material for the exam,
and so this course is **not** a substitute for studying
on your own. You can find the full syllabus for the exam, and suggested
textbooks which cover it, on the
exam webpage.

There is no grading for the course, but there will be homework assigned
each week. You should write down solutions to the assigned homework, and
view the assignments as practice for the Basic Exam. If you have any questions
about the assignments the TA and I can help during office hours.
You should write your solutions down each week *before* Friday.
The homework will not be graded or marked, but the TA will present
solutions to some of the exercises and you can use the discussion on
Friday to check that your solutions are correct.

The homework assignments
are posted below. Many of the questions are taken from old exams. These
are listed as XYY.N, where X indicates the term of the exam (Fall, Winter,
or Spring), YY indicates the year, and N is the question number (taken
from the analysis part of the exam in the rare case that the linear algebra
and analysis parts are numbered separately). The exams are
posted online
here. Some homework questions will come from the books *Analysis I and
II* by Tao, 3rd edition. These are listed as B.C.S.E where B is the book
(either I or II), C is the chapter number, S is
the section number, and E is the exercise number.

**Homework assignments:** (Updated as the term progresses.

week.)
