MATH 232.01 Linear Algebra 6 credits

Open: Size: 30, Registered: 26, Waitlist: 0

CMC 210

Synonym: 64891

Caroline Turnage-Butterbaugh

Linear algebra centers on the study of highly structured functions called linear transformations. Given the abundance of nonlinear functions in mathematics, it may come as a surprise that restricting to linear ones opens the door to a rich and powerful theory that finds applications throughout mathematics, statistics, computer science, and the natural and social sciences. Linear transformations are everywhere, once we know what to look for. They appear in calculus as the functions that are used to define lines and planes in Euclidean space. In fact, differentiation is also a linear transformation that takes one function to another. The course focuses on developing geometric intuition as well as computational matrix methods. Topics include kernel and image of a linear transformation, vector spaces, determinants, eigenvectors and eigenvalues. 

Prerequisite: Mathematics 120 or Mathematics 211

MATH 282.00 Elementary Theory of Numbers 6 credits

Open: Size: 25, Registered: 21, Waitlist: 0

CMC 209

Synonym: 63033

Caroline Turnage-Butterbaugh

A first course in number number theory, covering properties of the integers. Topics include the Euclidean algorithm, prime factorization, Diophantine equations, congruences, divisibility, Euler’s phi function and other multiplicative functions, primitive roots, and quadratic reciprocity. Along the way we will encounter and explore several famous unsolved problems in number theory. If time permits, we may discuss further topics, including integers as sums of squares, continued fractions, distribution of primes, Mersenne primes, the RSA cryptosystem.

Prerequisite: Mathematics 236 or instructor permission

Formerly Math 312

Either a supervised small-group research project or an individual, independent reading. Required of all senior majors.

Prerequisite: Mathematics 236 and successful completion of three courses from among: Mathematics courses numbered above 236, Computer Science 252, Computer Science 254, Computer Science 352, Statistics 250, Statistics 320, Statistics 340
