Subject Overview: 
This subject develops fundamental concepts and principles in mathematical analysis. Students should gain skills in the practical techniques of differential calculus, integral calculus and infinite series, and study selected applications of these techniques in mathematical modelling. Topics covered include heuristic and rigorous discussion of limits of realvalued functions, continuity and differentiability; Mean Value Theorem and applications; Taylor polynomials; Riemann integration, techniques of integration and applications, improper integrals; sequences and infinite series; first order differential equations, second order linear differential equations with constant coefficients and selected applications.
