Description

1. Introduction (8 hours)

– notation and basic notions: sets of numbers

(natural, integers, real, rationales), intervals, absolute value, basic

rules of inequalities, triangle inequality, the function [x] (integer part of x).

|x|<M <===> -M < x < M.

– functions: domain, range, image, graph, onto (surjection),

one to one (injection), monotone function, bounded function.

– operations on functions including composition and inverse functions.

– notions of: definition, axiom, theorem, negation of statements, disproof,

proof.

2. Limit of functions (6 hours)

– definition of a limit, punctured neighborhood, basic theorems, arithmetic of

limits.

– one sided neighborhood, one sided limits, basic theorems.

– limit at infinity, infinite limits.

– trigonometric functions, lim sin x /x.

– bounded sets and functions, sup, inf, min, max, axiom of supremum,

monotone bounded functions.

3. sequences (4 hours)

– definition of limit, basic theorems, arithmetic of limits.

– sandwich rule, q^n, n^{1/n}, a^{1/n}.

9. generalized integrals (3 hours)

– integral of bounded function on a ray, integral of unbounded function on interval.

– comparison theorems

– absolute convergence

10. series (3 hours)

– definition through partial sums, geometric and telescopic series
