Required Text: Principles of Mathematical Analysis, 3rd ed. by Walter Rudin 1976.

Supplement Reading: Part of the Lecture notes by Leon Simon for Stanford Honor Calculus Class. (This provides an efficient introduction for those who want an express way in real analysis.)

KVANT SELECTA: Algebra and Analysis I and II. Serge Tabachnikov Editor. 1999 AMS (KVANT is a Russian journal for high school (sometimes maybe college) students who are interested in math. We take some related (translated) essays which are understandable to high school students from this collection. You should try your best to understand them, at least before you get your degree.)

The rest can be downloaded at schedule link.


There will be two midterms and one final exam.


There will be weekly homework assignments. Please check weekly for the updates. Many problems will be assigned every week. They have to be turned in by the 6:00pm of the due day. The exams will be based on lectures and homework problems.
