Cantor's Set and Cantor's Function
February 9, 2016
I’m giving tutorials for McGill’s honours analysis 2 course this semester, and I wrote some notes on Cantor’s Set and Cantor’s Function; I thought they might be helpful to others, so I’ll post them hereMcGill has its own MyCourses system where I put the notes for students in the class, but I think it’s better to be in the habit of posting work in a publiclyaccessible place. .
I’ve given upfor now on actually converting my LaTeX to something webnative, so I’ll just put the pdf here.

Completeness I
January 1, 2016
Last semester, I helped a friend review McGill's Analyis 3 course by trying to provide a better feel for completeness; this post will be a slightly edited version of that. Originally, I wanted to write about both completeness and compactness, and their connections, but I ended up only getting to completeness, and actually not everything I wanted to talk about. So I'll call this Completeness I, leaving open the possibility for more of these in the future. Hopefully the style is casual and expository without being misleading.
