Official Course Description:
This course is an overview and an introduction to selected topics from different
areas of mathematics which are not usually covered in introductory classes. The goal is to
develop an understanding for interesting mathematical questions beyond the standard first and
second year curriculum. Rather than proving all results in full detail, we visit several different
areas of mathematics, thus illustrating the breadth and beauty of mathematics.
Topics vary; past instances of this course have included combinatorial game theory, hyperbolic
and spherical geometries, manifolds, Fourier analysis and wavelets, the Banach-Tarskiparadox,
dynamical systems and chaos, and others.
For students in Mathematics and ACM, this course is designed to be taken at the same time
as Analysis I and/or . It is open to anyone with interest and some experience in mathematics
(for others, General Mathematics and Computational Science I is recommended). Instead of a
final exam, students write a term paper on a mathematical subject of their choice and present it
to the class.
