|Course code MATH3180||Units 10||Level 3000||Faculty of Science and Information TechnologySchool of Mathematical and Physical Sciences|
Introduces students to abstract analytic structures and their applications. Familiar concepts from real analysis such as open and closed intervals, limits, and continuity are extended to the more general settings of metric and topological spaces. This greatly expands the scope of their applicability. The material lies at the heart of many developments in modern mathematics and provides a perfect example of the breadth and unity of mathematics.
