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.
Last offered: Autumn 2014 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math

MATH 143: Differential Geometry

Geometry of curves and surfaces in three-space and higher dimensional manifolds. Parallel transport, curvature, and geodesics. Surfaces with constant curvature. Minimal surfaces.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math, WAY-FR

MATH 144: Introduction to Topology and Geometry

Point set topology, including connectedness, compactness, countability and separation axioms. The inverse and implicit function theorems. Smooth manifolds, immersions and submersions, embedding theorems. Prerequisites: Math 61CM, or Math 51 and familiarity with linear algebra and analysis arguments at the level of 113 and 115 respectively.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: WAY-FR

MATH 145: Algebraic Geometry

An introduction to the methods and concepts of algebraic geometry. The point of view and content will vary over time, but include: affine varieties, Hilbert basis theorem and Nullstellensatz, projective varieties, algebraic curves. Required: 120.
