Prerequisite: MAT 1412Item Restricted MAT/COM 1504: Discrete Structures(2019-01) Roldan, Pablo; 0000-0003-0034-2863Prerequisite Three years of high school mathematics (exposure to proofs at an informal level, real numbers, integers, rationals, complex numbers, vectors, functions, divisibility, primes, factoring) and an interest in theoretical mathematics. Description The course will introduce students to a variety of topics in higher mathematics that are “discrete” in the sense that they are not dependent on limits and approximation. Discrete mathematics is useful in proving the correctness and deriving the complexity of algorithms and data structures. The subject coverage spans the following core subjects: logic and proofs; sets, functions, sequences, sums, and matrices; number theory; induction; counting; relations. On completion of this course, students will master the fundamentals of discrete mathematics. In subsequent courses, they will apply the basic methods of discrete mathematics to Computer Science (design and analysis of algorithms, computability theory, computer systems, etc.).Item Restricted MATH1510: Multivariable Calculus(2020-09) Belbruno, EdwardVectors, vector functions and curves; functions of several variables, partial derivatives; multiple integrals, Jacobians; vector fields, line and surface integrals; theorems of Green, Gauss, and Stokes.Item Restricted MAT1413: Calculus II(2020-01) Chen, WenxiongFirst semester: limits, continuity, derivatives; applications to graphing, maxima and minima, and related rates; mean value theorem; integration, fundamental theorem of the calculus, integration by substitution.

This course provides the fundamental concepts of calculus in the context of applications to the health, life and social sciences, and beyond. Course topics include functions, limits, derivatives, and integrals, and problem solving methods, including optimization and related rates problems. Emphasis is placed on developing and interpreting models from a variety of disciplines, on analyzing data, and on graphing and numerical computations. These knowledge and skills are essential to today's life science workforce and researchers. Students are expected to have pre-calculus skills - high school algebra and trigonometry and must pass the online placement test before the semester.Item Restricted MAT2601: Differential Equations(2020-09) Marini, AntonellaClassification of differential equations; existence and uniqueness of solutions; initial-value problems, boundary value problems; power series methods, integral transforms; numerical algorithms and error estimation; topological methods.Item Restricted MAT1520-1521: Advanced Calculus I and II(2020-09) Marini, AntonellaReal numbers, limits, intrinsic properties of continuous functions, differentiability and integrability, uniform convergence, implicit and inverse function theorems, point-set topology, metric spaces, curves and surfaces.
