Real and Complex Analysis

The purpose of this course is to learn some foundational results in real and complex analysis. It provides a thorough grounding in parts of modern mathematics that arise from the study of sequences and series of functions, such as: pointwise convergence and uniform convergence, how uniform convergence determines whether the limiting function is continuous and whether a series of functions can be term wise differentiated and integrated, and the precise conditions for a sequence of functions to have a subsequence of functions that converges uniformly on compact sets. In addition, with time permitting, a selection of topics in complex analysis may be covered, such as: Liouville's theorem, open mapping theorem, argument principle, Rouche's theorem, maximum modulus principle, Schwarz's lemma, normal families, Riemann mapping theorem.

Learning Outcomes

  • Students successfully completing this course should:
  • understand a range of basic concepts in real and complex analysis;
  • have developed a high level of competence at some core analytic skills;
  • be able to confidently apply analytic concepts in practical settings;
  • be able to present clear and logical mathematical arguments.


Subject to approval of the Head of School.
