Introductn to the Theory of Functions I

765

MATH 765 and MATH 766 are theoretical courses on the fundamental concepts of analysis and the methods of proof. These two courses include the concept of a real number; limits, continuity, and uniform convergence; derivatives and integrals of functions of one and of several real variables.
