This course is for students of outstanding ability in mathematics.
It covers some fundamental theory of functions of a single variable,
such as continuity, differentiability, and Riemann integrability.
The emphasis will be on the systematic and rigorous aspects of the
theory, rather than on the computations, as occur in most elementary
Students will get a great deal of practice formulating and writing
their solutions to theoretical problems, thereby learn the essence
of creative mathematics! These will count for a substantial portion
of the course grade, besides exams.
The prerequisites for S413 are a demonstrated success in third-year
mathematics courses, especially M311, M312 and M303, and a talent
for thinking creatively and rigorously in abstract contexts.
