MATH 70100: Functions of a Real Variable I
This is the first part of a year-long course in classical real analysis. It covers some basic topology, convergence and continuity
in metric spaces, functions spaces and applications, and basic Lebesgue theory. Although the course starts from the foundations,
a working knowledge of rigorous undergraduate analysis will be assumed.

- 10/28: Please note that the midterm exam has been rescheduled for Friday 11/8.
- 9/24: I've just posted the first chapter of my lecture notes, roughly equivalent to the material in the first 5 lectures. Click on "References" above and follow the link.
- Homework will be assigned roughly every week and is an absolutely essential part of the course.
You are strongly advised to work on all the homework problems to make sure you are keeping pace with the class.
You are also encouraged to work together on these problems, but the work that you hand in must be your own write up.
- Course grade is based on the following scheme:
- Exams are scheduled as follows:
|Friday November 8 (in class)||Friday December 20
Please take note of the following:
- If the midterm exam is missed because of a documented illness
or valid emergency, the course grade will be determined on the basis
of the other work done during the semester. Exams missed for other
reasons will count as failures.
- At the end of the semester, everyone who has
not withdrawn from the class will receive a grade. Incompletes will
not be given to avoid unsatisfactory grades.
