- No homework for this week. The next homework set will be due on Friday November 18th.
- The second midterm is done! The questions are here., as mentioned earlier, you may add these as extra homework problems to improve your grade on the midterm. Deadline for returns is Monday November 14th.
- I'm going to be travelling for a bit, and so for the lectures on Friday 28th, Monday 31st and Wednesday 2nd you will have substitute teacher,
my office mate Professor David W Taylor. Be nice!
After I return from my trip, the lecture we have on Friday, November 4th will be used (mostly) for review since the second midterm will be on November 7th. For the second midterm you should understand, from Tao's book, from Section 3.2. (Pointwise and uniform convergence) up to and including Section 4.2. (Real analytic functions). I will give a more detailed list of topics later on.

- The first midterm is done! The questions are here., as mentioned earlier, you may add these as extra homework problems to improve your grade on the midterm. The grading is ongoing.
- Here is the promised list containing a rough outline on what topics you should be able to handle in the midterm. (Again, more or less, we have covered everythin in Tao's book up until the end of section 2.3. Continuity and compactness.) Connectedness will not be in the midterm! In the midterm, no books, calculators, phones, etc. are to be used.
- The first midterm is next monday on October 17th. I will write a formal list of things we have covered on Wednesday after I see how far we get. (More or less, we have covered everythin in Tao's book up until the end of section 2.3. Continuity and compactness.) For a list of practice problems, see here.
- The discussion session on Thursday September 22 will be held as a lecture. We will (mostly) go through practical matters.
