Geometry of finite dimensional Euclidean spaces: isometries, translation group, and rotation group.
Metric spaces: examples, open and closed sets, cluster points, compactness, connectedness, completeness. Banach fixed-point theorem. Relation to the geometry of Euclidean spaces. Heine-Borel theorem.

Readings

J. Vrabec: Metrični prostori, DMFA-založništvo, Ljubljana, 1990.

Objectives and competences

Proseminar B complements courses Analysis 1 and Algebra 1 with some additional content and strengthens the understanding of these courses by concrete examples.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding: Understanding the behavior of polynomials, geometry of Euclidean spaces, and the concept of the metric space.
Application: Application in geometry, natural science and other field of science.
Reflection: Understanding of the theory from the applications.
Transferable skills: The ability to design the problem, select an appropriate method, solve the problem, and analyse the results on test cases. The ability to formulate a problem in mathematical language. Skills in using the literature.

Learning and teaching methods

Lectures, exercises, homework, consultations

Assessment

2 midterm exams instead of written exam, written exam
Oral exam
grading: 5 (fail), 6-10 (pass) (according to the Statute of UL)
