    This is the second semester of a two-semester sequence covering the fundamental structures of abstract algebra. The three main players in algebra are groups, rings, and fields. Having studied each of these objects to some ...

    This course will provide a general introduction to modeling in applied mathematics using di erential equations, with an emphasis on models in mathematical biology. Other applications that may be discussed include topics ...
  • Rob Manning (2019-01)
    Throughout the course, we will focus on algorithms that solve different types of optimization (max or min) problems, always in the presence of constraints. Many of these algorithms build off a core algorithm called the ...

    This course is an introduction to the basic techniques of calculus, with a strong emphasis on applications. The first step in being able to apply mathematical techniques to real-world problems is the development of a ...

    In Calculus I and II, the central objects of study are functions like g(x) = x5+3x4, and g(t) = e−t2; these are single-variable functions. In those courses, you learned about visualization (i.e., graphing), differentia- ...

    The course begins by examining a seemingly familiar topics: the set of solutions to a system of linear equations. What is of interest in linear algebra is the structure underlying this set of solutions, and how that structure ...

    This course will survey several different approaches to geometry. First, the synthetic, or axiomatic geometry based on Euclid. We will examine different axiom systems for different geometries, including incidence, neutral, ...

    This half-course aims to lead you to broaden your perspective on what it means to do mathematics. You will encounter mathematics that usually lies beyond the introductory calculus and linear algebra sequence. You will gain ...
