Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Basic proof techniques including mathematical induction. Basic notions and calculus rules for functions and sets including inverse functions. Trigonometric and exponential functions (tied to the viewpoint of G8) and their inverses as examples.
Real numbers (axiomatic, not derived from Q, field axioms are assumed to be given from the linear algebra course), in particular the notion of supremum and the completeness axiom.
Complex numbers. Notion of limit, convergence of sequences.
Series: Convergence, absolute convergence, quotient criterion.
Analysis of a function of a single variable: Continuity, derivative and integral (calculus and notions), Taylor expansion including those of trigonometric and exponential functions.
Uniform convergence.

Learning Outcome

Having successfully completed this module, the students have computational skills, graphical perception and theoretical understanding of functions of a single variable.


knowledge of natural numbers, integers and rational numbers

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The module examination is based on a written exam (90 minutes). Students have to show their possession of a descriptive imagination and theoretical understanding of functions of one real variable. They are able to deal with trigonometric and exponential functions and they show their numeracy skills with real and complex numbers in limited time.

Exam Repetition

The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
