MA271 Mathematical Analysis 3

Lecturer: Vedran Sohinger

Term(s): Term 1


Commitment: 30 one-hour lectures plus assignments

Assessment: 85% by 2-hour examination, 15% coursework

Formal registration prerequisites: None

Assumed knowledge: Notions of convergence, and basic results for sequences, series, differentiation and integration from introductory analysis modules like MA140 Mathematical Analysis 1 or MA142 Calculus 1 and MA152 Mathematical Analysis 2 or MA143 Calculus 2; knowledge of vector spaces from MA149 Linear Algebra or MA148 Vectors and Matrices

Useful background: Basic results about curves, surfaces and vector fields from MA145 Mathematical Methods and Modelling 2 or MA133 Differential Equations

Synergies: MA250 Introduction to Partial Differential Equations

Leads to: The following modules have this module listed as assumed knowledge or useful background:


  • Continuous Vector-Valued Functions
  • Some Linear Algebra
  • Differentiable Functions
  • Uniform convergence and applications
  • Convergence of sequences and series of functions
  • Introduction to complex valued functions

Objectives: By the end of the module the students should be able to:

  • Understand uniform and pointwise convergence of functions together with properties of the limit function
  • Study the continuity, differentiability and integral of the limit of a uniformly convergent sequence of functions
  • Study complex differentiability (Cauchy-Riemann equations) and complex power series
  • Study contour integrals: Cauchy's integral formulas and applications.

Books: There is no recommended textbook for the course. A complete set of lecture notes will be provided.
