Analysis is concerned with the theoretical underpinnings of calculus. We'll start with properties of the real numbers, then consider sequences and limits, functions and their derivatives and integrals.

The text we'll use is An Introduction to Analysis, 2nd edition, by G.G. Bilodeau, P.R. Thie, and G.E. Keough. We'll cover selected portions of the first five chapters and, time permitting, some of the sixth.

Here is a link to the syllabus.

Office Hours: Mondays 10-11, Wednesday 11-12, Fridays 1-2, or by appointment.
