Geometrical mathematics involves many topics other
than traditional Euclidean geometry. This course explores topics that vary from
semester to semester and may include some, but not all of the following:
symmetry, groups, frieze and wallpaper patterns, graphs, surfaces, knots, and
higher dimensions. Prerequisite: eligibility for Q courses and a
willingness to explore new ideas and construct convincing arguments is a
necessity.

This class will introduce the mathematical ideas
underlying string theory, a theory of particle physics which supposes that the
fundamental constituents of matter and energy are not points, but rather tiny
strings or loops. No prior background in physics is required. We will read and
discuss several popular books on string theory as a means to motivate concepts
from the entire mathematical curriculum. These ideas include: complex numbers, quaternions,
and their generalizations; Taylor series and Fourier series; spaces of
dimensions 4 and higher; the geometry and topology of two dimensional surfaces;
noncommutative algebra; and supersymmetry. Prerequisites: Mathematics 141 or
the equivalent.

Everyday we make decisions based on numerical data
in the face of uncertainty. We do so while reading the latest political polls,
playing a card game, interpreting a medical diagnosis, or analyzing a
scientific experiment. Probabilistic models and statistical methods help us to
think through such decisions in a precise mathematical fashion. This course
provides a calculusbased introduction to techniques and applications of
probability and statistics. Topics considered will include random variables and
their distributions, the Central Limit Theorem, hypothesis testing. Prerequisites:
Math 212. Some
knowledge of Linear Algebra is helpful. For students
concentrating in economics, Math 319 can substitute for Economics 229.

Green's functions.

This
course is a continuation of Mathematics 332.
The primary goal is to develop the Galois theory of fields. Toward that end we study the theory of field
extensions including algebraic extensions, automorphisms of fields, splitting
fields, and separable extensions. As
time permits we may develop some topics in advanced group theory such as series
of groups and the Sylow theorems. Prerequisites: Mathematics 331 and 332, or permission of the
instructor.

Knot
theory is an active branch of contemporary mathematics that, similarly to
number theory, involves many problems that are easy to state but
difficult to solve; unlike number theory, knot theory involves a lot of
visual reasoning. Knot theory is a branch of topology, but it also
has applications to aspects of biology, chemistry and physics (though for
lack of time these applications will not be discussed in class).
This course is an introduction to the theory of knots and links.
Topics include methods of knot tabulation, knot diagrams, Reidemeister
moves, invariants of knots, knots and surfaces, and knot
polynomials. Prerequisites: Math 351 or Math 361, or
permission of instructor.
