# Real Analysis: Mathematics 305b, Spring 2001

Tuesday-Thursday, 1 - 2:15 pm, Prof. Stephen Miller

Final: Tuesday May 1st, 2001, 9 am (exam group 26).

Course number 49305, no CR/D/F.

Office hours: Tuesday, Thursday 10:15-11:15, rm. 421 DL or by appointment (432-7048).

The topics will consist of:

• Lebesgue Integration.
• Fourier Series.
• Applications to
•
• differential equations,
• probability theory.
The grading scheme will be as follows:

• Each midterm exam will account for 20% of the grade. There will be two midterms.
• Weekly homeworks will total 20% of the grade, with the lowest homework from each half of the course dropped. Homeworks are assigned in class on Thursdays and due the following Thursday afternoon (before 5 pm to either my office, mail box, or reader Youngson Yoon's box).
• The final exam will be 40% of the grade.
• If a student's performance on the final is significantly better than their performance on the midterms then I will count the final as 80% of their grade (i.e. removing the midterm grades entirely).
