Kolmogorov, Fomin - Elements of the Theory of Functions and Functional Analysis.

Note that this is different from the book called "Introductory Real Analysis", by the same authors, although both are translations of the same Russian original.


Homework 30%; Quizzes 20%; Midterm 20%; Final 30%


There will be a short quiz every second Friday, starting January 30. Each quiz will be on the proof of a result from the lectures. The proofs of the theorems in the course contain many useful techniques in analysis and so it is important to know them well. The goal of the quizzes is to help you keep up with learning the proofs throughout the semester. The lowest quiz grade will be dropped.


There will be one midterm exam during class


I will give a take home final, on the last day of class.


There will be fortnightly written assignments which can be found below along with the due date and time.


This class follows the binding Code of Honor at Notre Dame. The graded work you do in this class must be your own. In the case where you collaborate with other students make sure to fairly attribute their contribution to your project.


List of theorems:

Theorems(4/13): This is a list of theorems you should know, and which you might need to prove on a quiz/exam. The list will grow as the course progresses. Here is the same list, with some sketched proofs for some of the theorems.

The dates given below for specific topics is only meant as a general guide, and the syllabus is likely to change as the course progresses.
