  • The textbook for this course is Real Analysis (third edition) by H. L. Royden.
  • The course will be graded based on homework and the final exam. Homework is worth 250 points and the final is worth 150 points for a total of 400 points. Grades will be based on your total points. Approximate cut-offs are 90% (360 points) = A, 80% (320 points) = B, 70% (280 points) = C, 55% (220 points) = D. Adjustments to this scale (such as plus/minus grades) will be made at the instructor's discretion.  Grades are now available (as of October 15) including letter grades.  The cut-offs are much lower than the ones listed above.
  • There is a syllabus at the bottom of this page.
  • Late homework assignments will be graded when I have time but there is no penalty for late homework.
  • Solutions for homework 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 are now available.
  • Here is a link to a list of numbered theorems, etc., from class with the corresponding reference from the textbook.
