Text: There is no required text for the course, all the material may be found in the lecture notes which will be posted below as the course progresses. If you want to look at a book, two that may be helpful are

Introduction to Analysis, by Maxwell Rosenlicht, Dover, 1968.


Principles of Mathematical Analysis, by Walter Rudin, McGraw-Hill, 1976.

Course Content

Topics for this second semester include, uniform convergence; differentiation; Riemann integration; sequences and series of functions; the calculus of functions from R^nR^m; and the inverse and implicit function theorems. Other topics as time permits. In addition to mastery of the course content, course objectives include reading, writing, and discovering proofs and constructing proofs and counterexamples in analysis.
