Learning outcomes
In this curricular unit the students are expected to be familiarized with the concepts, principles and methods of metric spaces and topological spaces and be able to apply them to other areas of mathematics.

At the end of the curricular unit the students should be able to:
- apply the basic concepts of metric spaces and topological spaces;
- recognize the importance of complete metric spaces;
- understand the proof and apply Banach's fixed-point theorem;
- understand the proof and apply Baire's theorem;
- illustrate the definitions with examples;
- understand the proofs of basic results on separation, compactness and connectedness of topological spaces.
