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.

MATH 61DM: Modern Mathematics: Discrete Methods
This is the first part of a theoretical (i.e., proofbased) sequence in discrete mathematics and linear algebra. Covers general vector spaces, linear maps and duality, eigenvalues, inner product spaces, spectral theorem, counting techniques, and linear algebra methods in discrete mathematics including spectral graph theory and dimension arguments. Part of the linear algebra content is covered jointly with
Math 61CM. Students should 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.nnThis sequence is not appropriate for students planning to major in natural sciences, economics, or engineering, but is suitable for majors in any other field (such as MCS ("data science"), computer science, and mathematics).

MATH 62CM: Modern Mathematics: Continuous Methods
A continuation of themes from
Math 61CM, centered around: manifolds, multivariable integration, and the general Stokes' theorem. This includes a treatment of multilinear algebra, further study of submanifolds of Euclidean space and an introduction to general manifolds (with many examples), differential forms and their geometric interpretations, integration of differential forms, Stokes' theorem, and some applications to topology.

MATH 62DM: Modern Mathematics: Discrete Methods
This is the second part of a proofbased sequence in discrete mathematics. This course covers topics in elementary number theory, group theory, and discrete Fourier analysis. For example, we'll discuss the basic examples of abelian groups arising from congruences in elementary number theory, as well as the nonabelian symmetric group of permutations.
