2018-11-29: more analysis

I continued working through Tao’s Analysis I. I worked through sections 10.2 (local maxima, local minima, and derivatives), 10.3 (monotone functions and derivatives), and 10.4 (inverse functions and derivatives). I got stuck on exercise 10.4.3(b) so I will resume there tomorrow.

I also spent time working on the page for little o notation again.

I also looked a bit at this study skills PDF (Cambridge University) as well as Lara Alcock’s How to Study as a Mathematics Major. The latter was actually better than I thought (based on the title) but I don’t think it contained insights I wasn’t aware of, so I skimmed a bit and stopped reading.
