**Aim**

The course is designed for those who may use mathematics extensively in the future, but also for other interested students. The aim is to throw light on the theoretical structure of the mathematics in the first courses. Besides the mere conveying of knowledge the goal is to give practise in the art of proof making, and to bring out the possibilities of abstraction of the concepts discussed.
