Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


  • integer and rational numbers, countability,
  • sequences, convergence, real numbers, decimal fractions, Cauchy sequences, convergence criteria, application: existence and calculation of square roots,
  • Series, geometric series, convergence and divergence criteria, Cauchy product of series,
  • Functions, continuity, application: nested intervals and existence of zeros, intermediate value theorem,
  • power series, exponential function and functional equation, sine and cosine,
  • differentiability, derivation rules, derivation of power series, Taylor series, extreme values, mean value theorem, rule of l'Hospital, application (e.g. Newton's method),
  • Riemann integral, antiderivative and fundamental theorem of calculus, integration rules,
  • inverse function, logarithm, general powers, derivative of the inverse function, application: runtime analysis of algorithms,
  • outlook on ideas and concepts of multivariate analysis: limit values and continuity in several variables, curves in ℝn, partial derivatives, gradient and Hesse matrix, Taylor formula and local extrema, applications (e.g. geometric modelling).
