Fall 2001 courses in the Rutgers-New Brunswick Math Graduate Program

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.
"Tea" (coffee/tea/etc.) and "cookies" (variable in type and quantity) are available most afternoons (3:30-4:30 PM) during the semester, usually in the lounge on the 7th floor. On rare occasions even more food appears. There are many interesting seminars almost every week.

More complete descriptions of courses including information about texts are usually posted outside the 3rd 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.
