    SYLLABUS

    Homework: Homework is an extremely important part of this course. Homework problems will be posted bi-weekly each Monday on this page. The homework assigned during a certain week is due in your TA's mailbox by 5pm on Thursday the following week. Write your own soultions carefully and in detail since the homework is worth 70% of your final grade for the class. A primary function of the homework is to train your mathematical thinking and to teach you to formulate and present rigorous mathematical arguments. It is extremely important that you attempt the homework on your own and even if you discuss soultion methods with your classmates, other graduate students, or faculty you should write up your own solutions. Copying solutions from internet resources, blogs, or posting homework questions on forums like MathStackexchange or MathOverflow is strictly prohibited and will be considered CHEATING.

    Exams: We will have an in class open book, open notes final exam which will cover all material from the semster. The final exam is worth 30% of your class grade.
