it would be nice to have access to lecture slides because of the low quality video.

Is it me or Prof. Su sounds a bit like Mr.Mackey! Great course btw.

@WorldCollections Thanks for recommending it!:)@Evan Zamir Thank you too!:)

For a more thorough study on the construction of the number fields like the reals and the complex, I recommend Edmund Landeau's Foundations of Analysis. Most of the theorems are not hard to get but the ones that serve as a basis for many constructions are hard.

If you use a calculator to split up a line, then you are using rational fractions.If you draw a square with straight edge and compass, you can't convince me it's a square. There will always be an atom unaccounted for.

In the discussion about Relations nothing is said as to what an ordered pair is. In fact, the instructor said it isn't a set which is false. An ordered pair (x,y) is a set namely:(x,y) =: {{x}, {x, y}}. Also, the domain and range of relations was not mentioned. I do understand that these discussions belong in a course on set theory, but the instructor did bring up set theory ideas (unions, intersections, binary relations, functions, etc) and so domain and range of relations needs to be mentioned in this lecture since his about to construct the all important "set of rationales". If you ask me, I would clearly say this lecture is set theory ( the foundation of mathematics)

What a great instructor!

Real Analysis, Lecture 1: Constructing the Rational NumbersCalculus doesn't just occur in natural world. What do you meant by that?... You don't just see na integral lying around there.

hã? How the fuck a finitist explains the diagonal of a square? |
