DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content

This module will provide you with knowledge of fundamental mathematical concepts, manipulations and results in analysis, and with an appreciation of the need for rigour in their development. Both of these are required for progression and success in future study of calculus based subject material and its applications.  You will study properties of the real number system; limits of functions and continuity; continuous functions; differentiation and integration of complex functions. By the end of this course, you will have developed your analytical thought processes and gained experience in logical argument and deduction.
 

Prerequisite module: ECM1702 or equivalent


 

AIMS - intentions of the module

Analysis is the theory that underpins all continuous mathematics. The objective of this module is to provide you with a logically based introduction to real analysis and some aspects of complex analysis. The primary objective is to define all the basic concepts clearly and to develop them sufficiently to provide proofs of useful theorems. This enables you to see the reason for studying analysis, and develops the subject to a stage where you can use it in a wide range of applications.

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)

On successful completion of this module, you should be able to:

 

Module Specific Skills and Knowledge:
1 demonstrate understanding of the fundamentals of analysis using a rigorous approach.
Discipline Specific Skills and Knowledge:
2 show knowledge of fundamental mathematical concepts, manipulations and results in analysis;
3 appreciate the need for rigour in your development.
Personal and Key Transferable/ Employment Skills and  Knowledge:
4 think analytically and use logical argument and deduction.

SYLLABUS PLAN - summary of the structure and academic content of the module

- sequences: convergence of (real or complex) sequences; elementary properties of sequences;

- properties of the real number system: completeness;

- proofs of elementary propositions on sup and inf; the convergence of bounded monotone sequences; the Bolzano-Weierstrass Theorem that every bounded real
sequence has a convergent subsequence;

- limits of functions and continuity: the definition of a limit of a (real or complex) function at a point; elementary properties of limits; examples; convergence and absolute convergence of (real or complex) infinite series, including power series and Fourier series;

- continuous functions: definition; chain rule; theorem that a continuous function defined on a closed bounded interval is bounded and attains its bounds; intermediate value theorum;

- differentiation: definition of derivative for real or complex functions; elementary rules for differentiation and chain rule; differentiation of a convergent power series; Rolle's theorem; first and second mean value theorems and applications to problems involving specific functions;

- integration of a complex function: definition of path integral;

- basic properties of complex integrations.

RE-ASSESSMENT NOTES

If a module is normally assessed entirely by coursework, all referred/deferred assessments will normally be by assignment.


If a module is normally assessed by examination or examination plus coursework, referred and deferred assessment will normally be by examination. For referrals, only the examination will count, a mark of 40% being awarded if the examination is passed. For deferrals, candidates will be awarded the higher of the deferred examination mark or the deferred examination mark combined with the original coursework mark.
