.   Our Teaching Page has useful information for students in all of my classes. It has my schedule, LOR guidelines, and Usually Useful Pamphlets. One of them is the ChecklistThe checklist (pdf) which gives pointers on what I consider to be good mathematical writing. Further information is at our class-archive URL (I email this private URL directly to students).

Assignment for first week of class; please complete by Sunday, 29Aug2021: (See below, for the materials referred to.)
  1. Learn the Math-Greek alphabet.
  2. In my PlexNotes, read pages 1-4, memorize abbreviations in Appendix: Notation (pp.24-25, currently), and review Binomial coefficients in Appendix B: Binomials.
  3. In our text B&C [Brown & Churchill], read pages 1-39 and write-up (but do not hand-in) at least 3 HW problems from those pages.
  4. Get the basics of Set-builder notation (up through “Equivalent predicates...”). Important: For us, the (double-bar N) symbol ℕ={0,1,2,...}; i.e zero is a natural number, a natnum.
    We use +={1,2,3,4,...} for the set of positive integers; the posints.
  5. Refresh your memory on your Calc 2. Taylor series material (absolute/conditional convergence, radius of convergence, Taylor polynomial and error term, etc.)

Our textbook is Complex Variables and Applications, 9th edition.

Quantifiers and (“for all”  and  “there exists”) are like nitroglycerin, in that one little mis-step leads to the whole thing blowing up in your face.

There is no partial credit when it comes to Explosives and Quantifiers.
