Unit details

MATH7432 4P2: Analysis and Geometry 2 [UG]

Credit 6 points
Availability Semester 2 (see Timetable)
Content Analysis, and topics closely related to analysis, comprise a wide range of fundamental subjects in pure mathematics including functional analysis, topology, differential equations and differential forms, analysis on manifolds and differential geometry. This unit covers at least one of these subjects, changing from year to year, depending on student demand and lecturer availability. The content complements that of MATH7431 4P1: Analysis and Geometry 1.
Outcomes Students are able to develop mathematical intuitions and the ability to articulate these intuitions within a formalism at an appropriate level; understand and appreciate the power and beauty of mathematical abstraction; communicate effectively with others; present mathematical results in a logical and coherent fashion; and undertake continuous learning, aware that an understanding of fundamentals is necessary for effective application.
Assessment This may comprise an end-of-semester examination and in-semester tests or assignments. All assessment tasks require students to apply their knowledge of the unit content to solve previously unseen problems. Credit is given for clarity and correctness of presentation as well as for actual results.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of going to press but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
