Fall 2001 courses in the Rutgers-New Brunswick Math Graduate Program
Information about the table below
Warning
All of the entries are currently correct and intended to still be
correct at the start of the semester. Updating will occur when the
maintainer of this page is informed. Experience has shown that
schedules, instructors, and topics will change. The word "Probably" is
used here as a periodic reminder of this fact.
Course number / Descriptions
640 is the prefix for Mathematics courses and 642 is the prefix
for Applied Mathematics courses. There is now no distinction in
degree requirements for Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, and to
some extent there has been a steady decrease in any emotional or
intellectual separation between 640 and 642 courses which might have
once existed. Each course number is a link to a description. Faculty
members were asked to supply very informal descriptions of
their courses. These descriptions were mildly edited. Some
descriptions may not exist. Some descriptions which are given may
change, maybe not too much.
Course name
This is the official course name in the Rutgers system for the given
course number. There may be little relationship between this name and
the course contents.
Instructor
Probably.
Place / Days, period; times
Probably. HLL refers to Hill Center. The Graduate Program and the Math
Department control the use of few real classrooms. There are other
spaces available which have sometimes been used for class
meetings. Constraints on meeting times include times which should be
left free for faculty meetings, times left free for traditional
seminar meetings, and 8 AM. Most faculty and almost all graduate
students are unwilling to admit that 8 AM exists as a time for
intellectual converse. Note: Monday=M, Tuesday=T, Wednesday=W,
Thursday=Th, Friday=F. The "period" refers to the Rutgers 80-minute
period. Period 1 begins at 8:10. There are 20 minutes between periods.

Beginning the fall semester
- The first class day of the fall 2001 semester is Tuesday, September 4, 2001.
- Written qualifying exams will be given during the week before the semester begins, Wednesday and Thursday morning (August 29 and 30, 2001).
- There will be a reception for new graduate students on Friday afternoon (August 31, 2001) of the week before the semester begins.
More complete descriptions of courses including information about texts are usually posted outside the 3^{rd} floor mailroom. Almost all introductory graduate courses in mathematics are given as a series of lectures. Most such courses have written homework, and one or more oral or written examinations. Many basic courses have assigned texts. More advanced courses depart from these rules. Students are sometimes asked to lecture, and there are rarely assigned texts.
