The textbook for this course is Real Analysis (third
edition) by H. L. Royden.
The course will be graded based on homework, a midterm exam and the final exam.
Homework
is worth 250 points, the midterm is worth 100 points and the final is worth 150 points for a total of
500
points. Grades will be based on your total points. Approximate cutoffs
are 90% (450 points) = A, 80% (400 points) = B, 70% (350 points) = C,
55%
(265 points) = D. Adjustments to this scale (such as plus/minus grades)
will be made at the instructor's discretion. Final
grades
are available
including letter grades. Because I calculated grades incorrectly before,
the version up now is revised from the earlier one.
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 to homework 1, homework
2, homework 3, homework
4, homework 5, homework
6, homework 7, and homework
8 are now available.
Here is a link to a list of numbered
theorems, etc., from class with the corresponding
reference from the textbook.
The midterm is now available.
The final is now available.
As announced in class, homework should be done in TEX as soon as possible. There
is a LaTEX template for homework posted.
