ANALYSIS OF REAL NUMBERS AND FUNCTIONS

MAT2ANA

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

The limits of sequences and limits of functions are studied in this subject. Initially we study them in one-dimensional space and then in higher dimensions. We also study series and various tests are derived to determine the convergence or otherwise of these series. We then extend the basic idea of limit to include sequences of functions and sequences of sets in metric spaces. A powerful theorem called The Contraction Mapping Theorem will be derived. This theorem plays a fundamental role in analysis and its applications. We will use it to establish the existence and uniqueness of solutions to certain differential equations.
