41 - 50 of 83 results for: all courses

MATH 115: Functions of a Real Variable

The development of real analysis in Euclidean space: sequences and series, limits, continuous functions, derivatives, integrals. Basic point set topology. Honors math majors and students who intend to do graduate work in mathematics should take 171. Prerequisite: 51.
Terms: Aut, Sum | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 116: Complex Analysis

Analytic functions, Cauchy integral formula, power series and Laurent series, calculus of residues and applications, conformal mapping, analytic continuation, introduction to Riemann surfaces, Fourier series and integrals. ( Math 106 offers a less theoretical treatment.) Prerequisites: 52, and 115 or 171.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 118: Mathematics of Computation

Notions of analysis and algorithms central to modern scientific computing: continuous and discrete Fourier expansions, the fast Fourier transform, orthogonal polynomials, interpolation, quadrature, numerical differentiation, analysis and discretization of initial-value and boundary-value ODE, finite and spectral elements. Prerequisites: MATH 51 and 53.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 120: Groups and Rings

Recommended for Mathematics majors and required of honors Mathematics majors. Similar to 109 but altered content and more theoretical orientation. Groups acting on sets, examples of finite groups, Sylow theorems, solvable and simple groups. Fields, rings, and ideals; polynomial rings over a field; PID and non-PID. Unique factorization domains. WIM.
Terms: Aut, Spr | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math, WAY-FR | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 121: Galois Theory

Field of fractions, splitting fields, separability, finite fields. Galois groups, Galois correspondence, examples and applications. Prerequisite: Math 120 and (also recommended) 113.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 131P: Partial Differential Equations

An introduction to PDE; particularly suitable for non-Math majors. Topics include physical examples of PDE's, method of characteristics, D'Alembert's formula, maximum principles, heat kernel, Duhamel's principle, separation of variables, Fourier series, Harmonic functions, Bessel functions, spherical harmonics. Students who have taken MATH 171 should consider taking MATH 173 rather than 131P. Prerequisite: 53.
Terms: Aut, Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 136: Stochastic Processes (STATS 219)

Introduction to measure theory, Lp spaces and Hilbert spaces. Random variables, expectation, conditional expectation, conditional distribution. Uniform integrability, almost sure and Lp convergence. Stochastic processes: definition, stationarity, sample path continuity. Examples: random walk, Markov chains, Gaussian processes, Poisson processes, Martingales. Construction and basic properties of Brownian motion. Prerequisite: STATS 116 or MATH 151 or equivalent. Recommended: MATH 115 or equivalent.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 137: Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics

Newtonian mechanics. Lagrangian formalism. E. Noether's theorem. Oscillations. Rigid bodies. Introduction to symplectic geometry. Hamiltonian formalism. Legendre transform. Variational principles. Geometric optics. Introduction to the theory of integrable systems. Prerequisites: 51, 52, 53, or 61CM, 62CM, 63CM.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

MATH 138: Celestial Mechanics

Mathematically rigorous introduction to the classical N-body problem: the motion of N particles evolving according to Newton's law. Topics include: the Kepler problem and its symmetries; other central force problems; conservation theorems; variational methods; Hamilton-Jacobi theory; the role of equilibrium points and stability; and symplectic methods. Prerequisites: 53, and 115 or 171.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
