### Textbooks

None required, but the following are recommended.

- Robert G. Bartle,
*The Elements of Real Analysis*, Second Edition. Jossey-Bass, 1976.
- Patrick M. Fitzpatrick,
*Advanced Calculus*. PWS Publishing Company, 1996.
- James S. Muldowney,
*Advanced Calculus Lecture Notes for Mathematics 217-317*, I, Third Edition.
- William R. Wade,
*An Introduction to Analysis*, Second Edition. Prentice Hall, 2000.

I will more or less follow my notes, but I plan to revise them thoroughly during the course and make the updated version also available online.

### Grading

The grade will be based on (approximately) weekly homework assignments (30%), an in-class-midterm on October 20 (20%), and a final (50%).
