Description

An introduction to those parts of modern analysis essential for many aspects of pure and applied mathematics, physics, economics and finance.

An introductory course into the parts of modern mathematics that arise from the idea of distance in finite and infinite dimensions. It is useful in understanding numerical algorithms, the basis of calculus, approximation methods, and the theoretical underpinnings of quantum mechanics and theoretical economics.

MATH343 provides useful background material for many 400-level courses, including Approximation Theory, Hilbert Spaces, Dynamical Systems, Fourier Transforms & Distribution Theory, and Topology.

Learning Outcomes

  • This course will:
  • develop metric space theory and its applications including convergence, open and closed sets, completeness, and compactness
  • look at standard infinite dimensional spaces and the similarities and differences between them and finite dimensional spaces
  • introduce normed and Hilbert spaces
