MATH 61CM: Modern Mathematics: Continuous Methods
This is the first part of a theoretical (i.e., proofbased) sequence in multivariable calculus and linear algebra, providing a unified treatment of these topics. Covers general vector spaces, linear maps and duality, eigenvalues, inner product spaces, spectral theorem, metric spaces, differentiation in Euclidean space, submanifolds of Euclidean space, inverse and implicit function theorems, and many examples. Part of the linear algebra content is covered jointly with
Math 61DM. Students should know 1variable calculus and have an interest in a theoretical approach to the subject. Prerequisite: score of 5 on the BClevel Advanced Placement calculus exam, or consent of the instructor.
