Students are also assumed, at the
very least, to have taken a two-quarter sequence in undergraduate real analysis covering in a
rigorous manner the theory of limits, continuity and the like in Euclidean
spaces and general metric spaces. The theorems of Heine-Borel (compactness in
Euclidean spaces), Bolzano-Weierstrass (existence of convergent subsequences),
the theory of uniform convergence, Riemann integration theory should have been
covered. One quarter of undergraduate complex analysis is also recommended.
