Basic information

Course number: Math 413,
CRN 13786,
and Math 513,
CRN 13794,

Course title: Introduction to Analysis 1.

Time and place: MWF 11:0011:50 am, 260 Condon.
Discussion section: Tu 1111:50 am, 104 Deady.
I will be away at conferences 2226 October (5th week of classes)
and 2630 November (10th week of classes).
I will arrange makeup lectures if possible.
More likely, the lectures will be given by substitutes.

Instructor: N. Christopher
Phillips.

Office: 105 Deady.
The office is on the main level at the east end of the building,
opposite the stairs
(very close to the classroom).
Please knock.
I can't leave my door open, because if I do I get too many people
asking to borrow my telephone or pencil sharpener, or
where to find the math department office
or nonexistent rooms (such as 350 Deady).

Office hours: MF 3:003:50 pm; Th 1010:50 am,
or by
appointment.

Email.
The subject line of your message should start with
"M413", followed by your last name,
then first initial.
I might use email occasionally to distribute general announcements.
I will give short replies to emailed questions.
I don't type at a reasonable
speed, so I will rarely answer complicated questions by email.
Please come to office hours instead.
When emailing me, please use plain text
(7 bit ASCII)
only.
That is, only the characters found on a standard English
language keyboard; no curved quotation marks, curved apostrophes,
accented letters, Greek letters, etc.
Use TeX pseudocode for mathematical symbols,
including Greek letters.
In particular:

No html encoded (web page format, or "styled") messages.
See "Configuring
Mail Clients to Send Plain ASCII Text"
for how to turn off html.
(The University of Oregon webmail program is apparently capable
of sending plain text email.)

No binary files or attachments (except by prior arrangement).

No Microsoft Word files.
I do not accept these under any circumstances,
since I don't have software that reads them.

No mime encoding or other encoding of ordinary text messages.

Course description:
The three quarter sequence Math 413Math 415
give a rigorous presentation of calculus of one and several
variables
(the material of Math 251Math 253 and Math 281Math 282).
In Math 413,
we will basic properties of the real numbers and complex numbers,
elementary point set topology
and continuity in the context of metric spaces
(which includes all subsets of n dimensional real and complex space),
convergence of series,
and differentiation.

Textbook:
W. Rudin, Principles of Mathematical Analysis
3rd edition.

Syllabus (pdf);
LaTeX.
(Corrected and updated version posted 10 November 2018.)
Everything here is also there,
with better formatting for the mathematical expressions
and sometimes in more detail,
but without links.
Exception: My email address isn't there,
since spammer address harvestors read pdf files.

Notes on Terminology:
The book contains a few oddities of notation and terminology which
I will not follow.
Open intervals are referred to as ``segments''.
The sets of real numbers
and rational numbers are called R and Q
instead of the
more usual blackboard bold (or boldface) versions.
(In particular, I will feel free to use
the letters R and Q for
other purposes.)
In contrast to this, the book suddenly switches from R to
R
when the function is supposed to take values in R^n
instead of a general metric space;
I will make no such distinction.
See the corresponding part of the
pdf
version of the syllabus;
for more,
on the set of natural numbers,
on "increasing" vs. "strictly increasing"
vs. "nondecreasing",
etc.

Grading
Homework
Contribution to final grade: approximately 20%.
Due every Monday, except as otherwise stated.
The homework will be hard, some of it quite hard, but it is an
essential part of the course.
The homework consists of proofs.
This means that everything must be proved.
In particular, if a problem asks for an example or counterexample,
you must prove that your example has the required properties.
If a problem asks whether something is true, you must not only decide
whether it is, but also provide a proof or counterexample as
appropriate; just as above, counterexamples must be proved to
have the required properties.
Proofs should be clear, correct, and complete.
They should use complete sentences and correct punctuation.
They should have all quantifiers in the right places.
They should be in logical order.
For example,
for a proof of convergence of a sequence from the definition,
start with "Let epsilon be greater than zero"
and end with the statement that
something is less than epsilon.
If there are subsidiary arguments in a proof,
say what is being claimed,
say that you are proving it,
prove it,
and say when the proof of your claim is done.
A reader who can't follow any of the mathematics should
nevertheless be able to easily tell
where the proof of your subsidiary claim starts
and where it ends.
I expect to post on the course website
at least sketches of some solutions after the
homework is turned in.
Some procedural points:

Staple pages together.
Don't fold or tear corners or fold in half.

If you cooperate with someone else on any particular problem,
you must acknowledge the cooperation (including the name of the person)
in your solution.
One Midterm
Contribution to final grade: approximately 30%.
Date: Friday 26 Oct.
The midterm from the last time I taught the course is
here
(pdf);
LaTeX.
Its solutions are
here
(pdf);
LaTeX.
The format of the midterm this time may be a bit different.
A large portion of the midterm will ask for proofs which you will
have to devise for yourself during the exam period.
If I use the format from last time,
many people will not finish, and it is likely that getting 75% of
it completely right will be a very good score.
I am willing to allow people to start an hour early
or continue an hour late,
or to arrange to give the entire exam during a longer period outside
of the normal class time.
(This was done the last time I taught the course.)
Such a procedure can only be followed if suitable rooms and times
can be found, and if everybody enrolled in the class agrees to it.
Final Examination
Contribution to final grade: approximately 50%.
Date: Thursday 6 Dec., 10:15 am12:15 pm, in our usual classroom.
(The final exam schedule is
here.)
No early final exams, according to University rules.
If you have another final exam scheduled at the same time
as our final exam,
you need to give me the details
(course number and instructor)
by Monday of the 7th week of classes.
Similar comments on the content apply as for the midterm.
The final exam from the last time I taught the course is
here
(pdf);
LaTeX.
Its solutions are
here
(pdf);
LaTeX.
I keep originals of the final exam, but will give out on request
a scan or copy of your exam.
Learning Disabilities
Students with documented learning disabilities who wish to
use the
Accessible Education Center
to
take
tests under specifically arranged conditions
should let me know as soon as possible,
certainly by Wednesday of the third week of classes.
Such students must also
be sure to meet the Accessible Education Center's
separate deadlines for requests;
these are likely to be a week or more in advance of the exam date
(much more for final exams).
I can't do anything to help a student who misses its deadline.
(I have tried in the past.)
Grading Complaints
Complaints about the grading of any exam must be submitted in
writing by the beginning of the first class period after the class in
which that exam is returned.
Extra Credit
Extra credit will be awarded to the first person to detect any
error or misprint in the book, in homework solutions, or in exams
and exam solutions.
More extra credit will be given for catching mathematical errors than
misspelled words or wrong dates.
To get the extra credit, you must tell me what the correct version
should be.
There are likely to be a number of mistakes to catch.
When going through materials from the last time I taught
this course,
I found several misprints,
including one egregious one
("not compact" for "compact"),
which were not caught despite a similar offer for extra credit.
Learning Outcomes
The course deals with:

The basic topology of the real numbers and the complex numbers.

The topology of metric spaces.

Convergence of sequences and series
of real numbers and complex numbers.

Continuity of functions and continuous functions
between metric spaces.

Differentiability of functions, differentiable functions,
and their derivatives,
for functions with domain a suitable subset of the real numbers
and codomain the real numbers or the complex numbers.
The successful student will be able to
precisely state the definitions associated with these topics,
and will be able to rigorously prove standard facts.
The successful student will also be able to
rigorously prove or disprove (as appropriate)
statements about these topics which have not been encountered before,
and which are at a level of difficulty
appropriate to a midlevel introductory analysis course.
The successful student will be able to write these proofs
so that they are correct, complete, clear, readable,
and in logical order.

Academic Conduct
The code of student conduct and
community standards is
here.
In this course, it is
appropriate to help each other on homework as long as the work you are
submitting is your own and you understand it,
and
you give the names of any people you cooperated with.
It is not appropriate
to help each other while taking exams,
to look at other students' exams while taking exams,
or to
bring any unauthorized material to exams.
Back to top of page.
Schedule
We will cover most of Chapters 15 of the book in the fall quarter,
and we will follow the book fairly closely.
The book usually used in the preceding course is
S. Abbott, {\emph{Understanding Analysis.}}
Much of the material of this quarter is also there,
but often restricted to special cases.
(As a representative example,
continuity is mostly only treated there in the context of
functions from subsets of the reals to the reals,
and we will consider continuity of functions
between metric spaces.)
One needs to have had some exposure to this material,
at least for motivation;
otherwise, the first several weeks of this course
will seem hopelessly abstract.
The schedule gives approximate times
that topics will be discussed.
It is necessary to read the book; not everything will be done
in class.
Homework assignments are subject to change.
