Lecture# Introduction to Real Analysis

Description

This lecture introduces the basics of real function analysis of a real variable, covering proofs of important results, basic concepts, and an introductory chapter on complex numbers. The course aims for a certain level of rigor without delving into formal constructions of real numbers. It includes reminders on basic notions and lays the groundwork for using complex numbers in other courses. The lecture also discusses the uniqueness of limited developments and the importance of total order in real numbers.

Total order

In mathematics, a total order or linear order is a partial order in which any two elements are comparable. That is, a total order is a binary relation on some set , which satisfies the following for all and in : (reflexive). If and then (transitive). If and then (antisymmetric). or (strongly connected, formerly called total). Reflexivity (1.) already follows from connectedness (4.), but is required explicitly by many authors nevertheless, to indicate the kinship to partial orders.

Lexicographic order

In mathematics, the lexicographic or lexicographical order (also known as lexical order, or dictionary order) is a generalization of the alphabetical order of the dictionaries to sequences of ordered symbols or, more generally, of elements of a totally ordered set. There are several variants and generalizations of the lexicographical ordering. One variant applies to sequences of different lengths by comparing the lengths of the sequences before considering their elements.

Weak ordering

In mathematics, especially order theory, a weak ordering is a mathematical formalization of the intuitive notion of a ranking of a set, some of whose members may be tied with each other. Weak orders are a generalization of totally ordered sets (rankings without ties) and are in turn generalized by (strictly) partially ordered sets and preorders.

Product order

In mathematics, given a partial order and on a set and , respectively, the product order (also called the coordinatewise order or componentwise order) is a partial ordering on the Cartesian product Given two pairs and in declare that if and Another possible ordering on is the lexicographical order, which is a total ordering. However the product order of two total orders is not in general total; for example, the pairs and are incomparable in the product order of the ordering with itself.

Order topology

In mathematics, an order topology is a certain topology that can be defined on any totally ordered set. It is a natural generalization of the topology of the real numbers to arbitrary totally ordered sets. If X is a totally ordered set, the order topology on X is generated by the subbase of "open rays" for all a, b in X. Provided X has at least two elements, this is equivalent to saying that the open intervals together with the above rays form a base for the order topology.
