This page is under construction. Many of the items are placeholders for information to be filled in. The page should be mostly correct by mid-March 2008, but changes will continue into the beginning of the semester. Send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to report errors or discrepancies.This page contains the following information about the Fall 2008 semester:
- A list of courses, with instructors, locations and times.
- A table showing courses by day and period.
- Some information about the start of the semester.
About the course list
Course number: 640 is the prefix for Pure Mathematics courses and 642 is the prefix for Applied Mathematics courses. There is no distinction in degree requirements for Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, but we still use this numbering differentiation, which dates to the 1960's.
Index number: This five digit number is needed to register for a course in the Rutgers system.
Course name: This is the official course name which is in the Rutgers system for the course corresponding to the given course number. There may be little relationship between this name and the course contents.
Place: Probable classroom. HLL refers to Hill Center. The Graduate Program and the Math Department control the use of only a few (four) real classrooms. There are other spaces available which have sometimes been used for class meetings.
Days, period; times: Probably. 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 quite unwilling to admit that 8 AM exists as a time for intellectual converse. Note: monday=M, tuesday=T, wednesday=W, thursday=Th, friday=F.
Warning: The "period" refers to the new Rutgers 80-minute period on Busch Campus: Period 1 begins at 8:40. There are 20 minutes between periods. See the Compact Schedule
