Analysis is the study of various concepts that involve the idea of taking limits, such as differentiation, integration, and notions of convergence. Princeton’s emphasis on analysis is reflected by the fact that two of the three introductory courses for math majors (MAT215 and MAT218) deal with the subject. Analysis has applications ranging from physics to number theory, and underlies many branches of applied math. After taking the introductory courses, most students interested in analysis proceed to the four core analysis courses called the “Stein sequence”, described below. The department also offers courses on the applications of analysis to other fields, including MAT 407 (Mathematical Methods of Physics) and MAT 415 (Analytic Number Theory).
