Text: A. Browder, Mathematical Analysis, an Introduction (isbn 978-1-4612-6879-6)

Course outline: After a review of real analysis and the Riemann integral, we discuss point-set topology, function spaces, measures and integration. We will cover most of the material in chapters 5-10.

There will be homeworks collected weekly and one midterm. The final grade will be weighted as follows: Homework 35%, midterm 20%, final 45%.

Final exam: Mon, Dec 18, 2017 2:00-5:00pm Salomon Ctr 003
