About this course

The most important parts of each topic are covered in lectures. The students are then given exercises on the same topics. The aims of the exercises are for students to understand methods and ideas, as well as to be able to apply the subject to relevant problems.

Learning outcome

The students are to learn how to use mathematical ideas precisely. This is a necessary background for understanding mathematical analysis. After completing the course, students are to master:1) basic set theory, 2) axiomatic description of the different number systems, 2) basic topological ideas such as compactness, convergence and uniform convergence, 4) the Riemann integral, 5) theory of series of numbers and functions.
  • The teaching is given as lectures and seminars.
  • The students can contact the teacher responsible for the course at the teacher's office, by telephone or by e-mail.
