Aims/Description: This module is lectured with the undergraduate modules MAS331 Metric Spaces and MAS350 Probability and Measure. This unit explores ideas of convergence of iterative processes in the more general framework of metric spaces. A metric space is a set with a ¿distance function which is governed by just three simple rules, from which the entire analysis follows. It also will give students an additional opportunity to develop skills in modern analysis as well as providing a rigorous foundation for probability theory.
