Principles of analysis in one variable. Heine-Borel and Bolzano-Weierstrass theorems; rigorous development of differential and integral calculus; infinite sequences and series of functions. May not be taken concurrently with or after MATH 241. Prerequisite: MATH 052 (preferred) or CS 064.
Prereqs enforced by the system: MATH 052 or CS 064; Open to degree and CDE students
Math 141 may be viewed as an extension of the main ideas from calculus: limits, derivatives, integrals, and convergence of sequences and series. In this course, you study the basic properties of sets of real numbers and analyze the behavior of real-valued functions defined on subsets of the reals. This course focuses on learning techniques of developing rigorous proofs. The course proceeds at a pace that will allow students more time to develop facility with the precise logical reasoning that underlies analysis on the real line, and indeed, the structure of the real number field itself. In addition we will cover the more general notion of a metric space.
