Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes

This course is the sequel of the course “Infinitesimal Calculus I”. The student will get in contact with more notions and techniques in the branch of Analysis. In this course the students:

  • Are taught the notions of convergence and absolute convergence of series. They learn criteria and theorems concerning these notions as well as they learn how to compute sums of series. They are introduced in the notion of power series and they learn how to calculate the radius of convergence of a power series.
  • Are taught the notion of uniform continuity and they learn to distinguish this notion from continuity.
  • Are taught the notion of Riemann integral and various theorems concerning this notion. They also learn various integrating techniques.
  • Are taught Taylor’s theorem and they learn to write a given function as a Taylor series.
General Competences

The course provides inductive and analytical thinking, the students evolve their computational skills and they get knowledge necessary for other courses during their undergraduate studies.


Series, convergence of series and criteria for convergence of series. Dirichlet’s criterion, D’ Alembert’s criterion, Cauchy’s criterion, integral criterion. Series with alternating signs and Leibnitz’s theorem. Absolute convergence and reordering of series, Power series, radius of convergence of power series.
Uniform continuity, definition and properties. Characterization of uniform continuity via sequences. Uniform continuity of continuous functions defined on closed intervals.
Riemann integral, definition for bounded functions defined on closed intervals. Riemann’s criterion, integrability of continuous functions. Indefinite integral and the Fundamental theorem of Calculus. Mean Value theorem of integral calculus, integration by parts, integration by substitution.
