This is a first course of modern Real Analysis, where we will study the main theorems concerning complete metric spaces, in particular the space of continuous functions, as the Bolzano-Weierstrass, Heine-Borel, Arzelà-Ascoli, and Stone-Weierstrass theorems. We will also study the early theory of Functional Analysis and its applications to Differential Equations.
