  • The aim of the course is to consolidate and generalize resultats which the student already has encountered in earlier courses in analysis, to equip him or her with an adequate language for higher studies in mathematics, and to develop his or her ability to work with abstract concepts, which are defined through of axioms. In particular the course should form a bridge between the mathematics courses at the Faculty of Engineering and more advanced mathematics courses.
  • The fundamentals of the theory of metrical, topological and compact spaces. The Tietze extension theorem and Stone-Weierstrass approximation theorem. Elementary properties of Banach and Hilbert spaces.
