Course description and aims

The objective of this course is to explain the fundamentals of set theory and topology. The main theme of this cousrse is set theory. In the first half of this course, lectures on sets, maps, axiom of chice, equivalence relations, and the cardinarity of sets are given. In the the last half of this course, orderd set, Zorn's lemma, and the topological properties of metric spaces are given. This course is aimed to connected to the course "Set and Topology II" in the third quarter.

Student learning outcomes

(Theme)
The set and topology play an important role in mathematical and computing science. The objective of this course is to explain the fundamentals of set theory,
and topological properties of metric spaces as an introduction of topology.
(The goal)
The students are expected to understand the fundamentals of mathematical methods to handle the concept of sets, maps, and metric spaces appeared in mathematical and computing science and also to be able to apply them to practical problems.

Keywords

set, mapping, family of sets indexed by a set, the axiom of choice, equivalence relations, quotient set, cardinality of sets, countabe set, uncountable set, order, linearly ordered set, Zorn's lemma, Euclidean space, metric space.

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
