HW#1 HW#2 HW#3 HW#4 HW#5 HW#6 HW#7 HW#8 HW#9 HW#10
Topics to be covered: Rigorous treatment of the foundations of real analysis, including construction of the naturals, rationals and reals. Metric space (a.k.a. point set) topology, compactness and its consequences. Numerical sequences and series. Continuity, including connections with compactness. Rigorous treatment of the main theorems of differential calculus.
While being marked as an honors version of MATH131A, the content of the course contains a number of additional topics generally treated in MATH131B. If you need to take the whole MATH131AB sequence (and, in particular, learn also the Riemann integration theory), then plan to take MATH131BH as well.
