Math 61CM Analysis (aka Modern Mathematics: Continuous Methods)


Lectures:

MTWTh 9:30-10:20am, Section: Friday 9:30-10:20am, all in in 380Y. For the first six weeks, we plan to have lectures on analysis on Monday and Wednesday, and on linear algebra on Tuesday and Thursday. The linear algebra lectures will be in 380C. After that, we will have lectures on analysis on all four lecture days in 380Y.

    Homeworks:

    Note: The homework problems form an integral part of the course and the most reliable check of your progress. It is fine, and even encouraged, for you to discuss the problems in general terms with your peers. However, it is expected that what you hand in is your own work. The lecture notes contain some exercises that are not part of the homework and you do not need to turn them in. You are very much encouraged to think about the exercises daily as you review the lecture notes and make sure you know how to do them - this is a good check of your grasp of the material of the lecture.

    Homework 1 (Due Monday, October 1)

    Read the lecture notes: Sections 1.1-2.2, this material corresponds to Simon: Lecture 1 in Appendix and Zorich: Chapter 2, until (and including) Section 2.3.2. Zorich has more material than we have covered, please read as much as you can. Linear algebra material is in the lecture notes until p.9. Do as many exercises in the lecture notes as you can, but you do not need to turn them in.
