Spring 2005 courses in the Rutgers-New Brunswick Math Graduate Program

Spring 2005 courses in the Rutgers-New Brunswick Math Graduate Program


About the table below

Please see Beginning the spring semester at the bottom of this page. There is a compact version at the bottom of this page. More detailed course descriptions will also be available soon.
Warning:   All of the entries are intended to still be correct at the start of the semester. Please inform the graduate office if it needs to be updated. 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:   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.
Instructor:   Probably.
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. The "period" refers to the Rutgers 80-minute period. Period 1 begins at 8:10. There are 20 minutes between periods.

Beginning the spring semester

  • The first class day of the spring 2005 semester is Tuesday, January 18, 2005.
  • Written qualifying exams will be given during the week before the semester begins, Wednesday and Thursday morning (January 12 and 13, 2005).
"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 sometimes 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.
