MATH 172 - Introduction to Modern Analysis


Modern analysis provides a language and unifying framework for theories encountered throughout mathematics. In this course, students learn to understand, formulate and prove mathematical statements. Ideas first encountered in calculus-convergence, completeness and integration-are studied in depth. Other topics include metric spaces, normed spaces, compactness and measure theory (Lebesgue integration). Required for mathematics majors by the junior year, and earlier if possible.

Prerequisites: MATH 121   or MATH 125 .

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered every year
