Pre-requisites: Mathematics at the XII grade level and 4 credits of MA502 (Analysis I).

Aim: This course has been designed with the aim to adding to the skills of the students in Calculus and to deepen their understanding. The degree of rigour in considering the definitions and concepts increases and develops students thinking and understanding of concepts.

Course Outcomes: After completing this course, students should be able to

  1. Describe fundamental properties of the real numbers.
  2. Demonstrate an understanding of limits and how they are used in sequences, series, continuity, differentiation.
  3. Construct rigorous mathematical proofs of basic results in real analysis.
