We extend the usual notions of distance, limit and continuity, first to metric spaces and then to topological spaces.

Metric Spaces
Topological spaces

Upon concluding this Curricular Unit the student should be able to:
Identify and be able to properly use the main topological concepts in metric and topological spaces.

1. Review of topological concepts in R.
2. Metric spaces. Definition and examples.
3. Topological concepts in metric spaces.
4. Topological spaces. Definition and examples.
5. Topological concepts in topological spaces.

Continuous assessment is privileged: 2 or 3 digital written documents (e-folios) during the semester (40%) and a presence-based final exam (p-folio) in the end of the semester (60%). In due time, students can alternatively choose to perform one final presence-based exam (100%).

Students are assumed to be conversant with the subject matter studied in Elements of Infinitesimal Analysis I and II.
