Book: Introduction to Real Analysis
by Robert G. Bartle and Donald R. Sherbert, 4th. Edition
Course Description. This is the second of two courses providing a rigorous introduction to Mathematical Analysis and Metric Space Topology as a basis for advanced work in mathematics. In this course we will look more deeply at concepts you learned in your Calculus classes. We will discuss how to prove many of the facts you have used in the past. You will learn precise definitions of notions, get a deeper understanding of concepts, and make your reasoning more rigorous. A very important component of this course is to expose you to proofs. The goal is for you to learn how to write proofs.
