18.100A Real Analysis

Class Info

Four options offered, each covering fundamentals of mathematical analysis: convergence of sequences and series, continuity, differentiability, Riemann integral, sequences and series of functions, uniformity, interchange of limit operations. Each option shows the utility of abstract concepts and teaches understanding and construction of proofs. Option A: Proofs and definitions are less abstract. Gives applications where possible. Concerned primarily with the real line. Option B: More demanding; for students with more mathematical maturity. Places more emphasis on point-set topology and n-space. Option P: 15-unit (4-0-11) variant of Option A, with further instruction and practice in written communication. Option Q: 15-unit (4-0-11) variant of Option B, with further instruction and practice in written communication.

This class has 18.02 as a prerequisite.

18.100A will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by A. P. Mattuck.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 4-163.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
