**plagiarism declaration**in LMS, by clicking on the Plagiarism declaration link for this subject and completing the submission of the Plagiarism declaration through LMS for this subject. - 26.07.2017 The first assignment (due 7 September) is available (pdf file available HERE)
- The lectures will not be recorded.
- Prof. Ram reads email but generally does not respond by email.
- The start of semester pack includes: Housekeeping (pdf file), Academic Misconduct (pdf file), SSLC responsibilities (pdf file).
- It is University Policy that:
“a further component of assessment, oral, written or practical, may be administered by the examiners in any subject at short notice and before the publication of results. Students must therefore ensure that they are able to be in Melbourne at short notice, at any time before the publication of results” (Source: Student Diary).

Students who make arrangements that make them unavailable for examination or further assessment, as outlined above, are therefore not entitled to an alternative opportunity to present for the assessment concerned (i.e. a ‘make-up’ examination).

The handbook entry for this course is at https://handbook.unimelb.edu.au/view/2017/MAST30026.

This subject provides a basis for further studies in modern analysis, geometry, topology, differential equations and quantum mechanics.It introduces the idea of a metric space with a general distance function, and the resulting concepts of convergence, continuity, completeness, compactness and connectedness. The subject also introduces Hilbert spaces: infinite dimensional vector spaces (typically function spaces) equipped with an inner product that allows geometric ideas to be used to study these spaces and linear maps between them.

Topics include: metric and normed spaces, limits of sequences, open and closed sets, continuity, topological properties, compactness, connectedness; Cauchy sequences, completeness, contraction mapping theorem; Hilbert spaces, orthonormal systems, bounded linear operators and functionals, applications.

There will be one three hour examination at the end of the semester,
and two written assignments during semester. For your final mark, the exam counts
for 80% and the assignments count for a total of 20% (10% each). Note that each piece
of assessment is **compulsory**.

Assignments will be due by 2pm on the following dates:

- Thursday, Sep 7: Assignment 1 (pdf file available HERE): Solutions Assignment 1 Question 1, Assignment 1 Question 2, Assignment 1 Question 3, Assignment 1 Question 4, Assignment 1 Question 5, Assignment 1 Question 6, Assignment 1 Question 7, Assignment 1 Question 8, Assignment 1 Question 9,
- Thursday, October 12: Assignment 2 (pdf file available HERE): Solutions Assignment 2 Question 1, Assignment 2 Question 2, Assignment 2 Question 3, Assignment 2 Question 5, Assignment 2 Question 6, Assignment 2 Question 7,

These assignments must be your own work. While students are encouraged to discuss their coursework and problems with one another, assignments must be written up independently. It is University policy that students submit a signed plagiarism sheet at the start of each semester. If you do not submit this sheet your assignments will be given a mark of zero.
