Advanced Calculus (MTH318)


MTH318 Advanced Calculus will introduce students to the calculus of series, sequences and series of functions. Students will be exposed to various tests of convergence of series as well as notions of pointwise and uniform convergence of sequences of functions. The emphasis of the course will be on applications of the results presented to solve problems.

Level: 3
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every July
