Course aims

The aim of this course is to provide students in Applied Mathematics with basic knowledge of Real Analysis and Functional Analysis, particularly topics that are useful for the study of many other Applied Mathematics courses. In any area of applied research, methods should not be learnt as a black box. Understanding the theory behind the methods requires some abstract mathematics, and this forms the contents of this course.
