The aim is to provide concepts and methods from real and complex analysis which are important for further studies within for example mathematics, economy, physics, field theory, mathematical statistics, control theory, signal theory, and for professional work in the future. The aim is also to make the students develop their ability to solve problems, to assimilate mathematical text and to communicate mathematics.
