Course description and aims

In this course we give a rigorous formalization of "limits" of sequences functions, "limits" of multivariable functions, and their derivatives by means of the "epsilon-delta" definitions. We also learn how to find local maxima and minima of a given multivariable function. Each lecture will be followed by a recitation (a problem-solving session). This course is a succession of "Introduction to Analysis I" in the first quarter.

The students will learn how to write the multivariable analysis logically. More precisely, the students will become familiar with the "epsilon-delta" definitions and proofs, and be able to describe multivariable calculus rigorously.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students are expected to:
-- Understand the difference between pointwise and uniform convergences
-- Be familiar with calculus of power series in the disk of convergence
-- Understand the differentiability of multivariable functions as linear approximations
-- Understand the relation between gradient vectors and partial derivatives
-- Be able to calculate partial derivatives of composed functions
-- Understand the principle of the method of Lagrange multiplier


Uniform convergence, power series, total derivative, partial derivative, Taylor expansion of multivariable functions, inverse function theorem, implicit function theorem, the method of Lagrange multiplier
