The real and complex numbers. The set of real numbers R and its characterization as an ordered field with the greatest lower bound property. Existence of n-th roots of positive real numbers. The extended real line. The complex field C: operations, De Moivre's formula, n-th roots. The fundamental theorem of algebra.

Convergent sequences in metric spaces and their properties. Cauchy sequences. Subsequences. Sequences in R. Limits and operations on limits. Monotone sequences. The limit that defines Nepero's number "e" and applications.

Infinite series of real numbers. Series in R. Convergence, divergence and irregularity. Absolute convergence. Cauchy's criterion. Sufficient conditions for absolute convergence. Alternating series and Leibniz's criterion. Operations on series. Rearrangements.

Limits and continuity. Limits of functions. Reformulation using sequences. Continuity of functions between metric spaces. Pre-images of open sets. Relationships between continuity, compactness and connectedness. Continuity of composite and inverse functions. Uniform continuity. Real functions of one real variable. Existence of limits for monotone functions. Limits and algebraic operations. Indeterminate forms of limits. Asymptotes. Discontinuities.


Differential calculus for real functions of one real variable. Differentiability and the derivative function. Rules of differentiation: algebraic operations, composite and inverse functions. The theorems of Rolle, Cauchy and Lagrange. Applications of differential calculus to the study of functions: monotonicity, convexity and optimization (local and global). De L'Hospital's theorem.
