Analysis 2 - academic year 2016/17

Introduction

This page contains material for the course MAA240 and MAA243 aka Analysis 2. The module specifications can be found here.

Lecture Notes

In this lecture, I follow the outline of Dr. Alexander Strohmaier very closely. That also applies to the problem sheets. The Lecture Notes will be completed during the Semester and should be augmented by your own notes taken in lectures.

Homework Problem Sheets

Mathematics is not a spectators sport. Please take the problem sheets seriously and always try to attempt them. Even if you understand every word in lecture and in the textbook, the only way to really learn mathematics is by doing mathematics. Sometimes this means doing even more than the assigned problems. This is how to avoid the common pitfall of understanding everything in class but blanking out on the exams.
  1. Review your lecture notes and understand all the definitions and relevant theorems.
  2. Write down the problems from the sheets and work out what you have to show.
  3. Play around with related inequalities, identities and so forth.
  4. Don't give up too soon. Some questions are very hard and only few will solve them alone but if you use the right techniques, you will always learn something.
  5. Use tools as GeoGebra and Wolfram alpha for visualisation and confirmation of results.
