In this course we continue our study of the foundations of analysis.
of this course is to further develop your instincts as a mathematical
entails understanding the basic concepts and techniques of analysis, as
developing intuition and proficiency in the construction of rigorous
proofs. We will complete several topics from the Fall. After a
quick discussion of differential calculus
in several variables, we turn to Riemann integration in the plane
and prove Green's theorem. We will then introduce
basic concepts of functions
of a complex variable, and finish up with a study of Fourier
series in 1-variables and applications. For the
first part of the
course we will continue to use Strichartz (the
textbook from the fall). Marsden's book Elementary Classical Analysis is
also a good reference for the material on differential and integral calculus
of several variable. We will use other sources for the complex
analysis unit. Fourier Series and Complex Analysis by
E.M. Stein and R. Shakarchi are excellent references, but more
advanced and detailed than our treatment of these subjects will
be. Strichartz also has a good treatment of Fourier series.
A problem set will be assigned every week, on Tuesdays. We may have a midterm and final exam.
- The class meets from 3:00 to 4:30 on Tuesdays and Thursday in DRL A1.
- Each student is required to register for and attend an evening lab session.
My office hour is 3:00-5:00 on Monday. Send e-mail if you have a question or would like to come see me at some other time.
