Spring 2006 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.
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.
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.

Beginning the spring semester
- The first class day of the spring 2006 semester is Tuesday, January 17, 2006.
- Written qualifying exams will be given during the week before the semester begins, Wednesday and Thursday morning (January 11 and 12, 2006).
More complete descriptions of courses including information about texts are sometimes 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.
