Course Meeting Time and LocationMonday, Wednesday and Friday 11:00 - 11:55 am 107 Downs Physics Laboratory (DWN) Course Instructor Contact Information and Office HoursDr. Kirill Lazebnik lazebnik@caltech.edu 210-6 Math Building (Building 15) Office hour: 5pm Wednesday TA Contact Information and Office HoursZijian (Jack) Tao cubicle 110L, Math building Office hour: Tuesday 4-5pm Zachary Chase zchase@caltech.edu Course Schedule and TextbookThe general plan is to work through the textbook Principles of Mathematical Analysis (3e) by Rudin. More specifics to follow as the class progresses. I am also listing as a reference the textbooks Analysis I, Analysis II by Terence Tao. The course structure and homework will follow Rudin, however I recommend Tao's books if you have time to read them. My own favorite analysis text as an undergraduate was Elementary Classical Analysis by Marsden and Hoffman.
Course PoliciesAssignments for the course will consist of weekly homework. The problems will be posted some time Friday afternoon and due 11AM Thursday in the dropbox in Downs. Late work will never be graded/accepted, but in documented and extenuating circumstances the 0 will not count in the determination of a final letter grade. There will be a midterm (date to be determined) and a final exam. The homework assignments comprise 30% of your final grade, while the midterm makes up another 30% and the final exam 40% of your final grade. For homework assignments - I ask per your honor code that you do not consult any online resources such as solution manuals or math forums until after the due date has passed for the homework in question. For example you are not allowed to look at online resources that would assist you in solving problems from the homework set assigned on 9/29/17 until after 11am on 10/5/17. After 11am on 10/5/17 you are welcome to peruse any solutions manual or math forum you would like pertaining to these problems, but please do not look at solutions for problems which you think may be assigned in the future (i.e. solutions for problems in upcoming chapters). Feel free to work amongst each other, but never copy someone else's work or write something down which you don't understand. If there are ever any questions/issues about what is/is not allowed please do not hesitate to ask me. Also - I will give bonus points to students who submit their homework written in LaTeX - this is a valuable skill worth learning early. Assignments

* You may use a computer or calculator while doing the homework, but may not refer to this as justification for your work. For example, "by Mathematica" is not an acceptable justification for deriving one equation from another. Also, since computers and calculators will not be allowed on the exams, it's best not to get too dependent on them. |
