AMCS 520-401 Ordinary Differ Equation Svetlana Makarova TR 12:00 PM-01:30 PM After a rapid review of the basic techniques for solving equations, the course will discuss one or more of the following topics: stability of linear and nonlinear systems, boundary value problems and orthogonal functions, numerical techniques, Laplace transform methods. MATH420401 Undergraduates Need Permission
AMCS 525-401 Partial Differential Equations Jonathan Block TR 01:45 PM-03:15 PM Method of separation of variables will be applied to solve the wave, heat, and Laplace equations. In addition, one or more of the following topics will be covered: qualitative properties of solutions of various equations (characteristics, maximum principles, uniqueness theorems), Laplace and Fourier transform methods, and approximation techniques. MATH425401 Undergraduates Need Permission
AMCS 603-001 Algebraic Techiques II Yoichiro Mori TR 01:45 PM-03:15 PM We begin with an introduction to group theory. The emphasis is on groups as symetries and transformations of space. After an introduction to abstract groups, we turn our attention to compact Lie groups, in particular SO(3), and their representations. We explore the connections between orthogonal polynomials, classical transcendental functions and group representations. This unit is completed with a discussion of finite groups and their applications in coding theory.
AMCS 609-401 Analysis II Robert M. Strain TR 10:15 AM-11:45 AM Real analysis: general measure theory, outer measures and Cartheodory construction, Hausdorff measures, Radon-Nikodym theorem, Fubini's theorem, Hilbert space and L2-theory of the Fourier transform. Functional analysis: normed linear spaces, convexity, the Hahn-Banach theorem, duality for Banach spaces, weak convergence, bounded linear operators, Baire category theorem, uniform boundedness principle, open mapping theorem, closed graph theorem, compact operators, Fredholm theory, interpolation theorems, Lp-theory for the Fourier transform. MATH609401
MATH 546-001 Adv Applied Probability Robin Pemantle M 12:00 PM-01:30 PM
W 12:00 PM-01:30 PM
The required background is (1) enough math background to understand proof techniques in real analysis (closed sets, uniform covergence, fourier series, etc.) and (2) some exposure to probability theory at an intuitive level (a course at the level of Ross's probability text or some exposure to probability in a statistics class). After a summary of the necessary results from measure theory, we will learn the probabilist's lexicon (random variables, independence, etc.). We will then study laws of large numbers, Central Limit Theorem, Poisson convergence and processes, conditional expectations, and martingales. Emphasis is on using these for probability modeling. Application areas include genetics, linguistics, machine learning, agent-based models, statistical physics, and hidden Markov models. Undergraduates Need Permission
