Completeness of the real numbers; topology of n-space including the Bolzano-Weierstrass and Heine-Borel theorems; sequences, properties of continuous functions on sets; infinite series, uniform convergence. The course may also study the Gamma function, Stirling’s formula, or Fourier series. Four class hours per week.
Fall 2020 sections of MATH 355 will be online-only, in which case the course’s full syllabus will be covered through a combination of synchronous meetings for each section and asynchronous lectures supported by an ample number of Zoom office hours.
Requisite: MATH 211 and either MATH 271 or 272, or consent of the instructor. Students with a grade of B+ or lower in linear algebra are encouraged to take another 200-level course with proofs before taking MATH 355.
Limited to 25 students. The Department.
If Overenrolled: In the Fall, preference will be given to MATH majors
