**Grading:**The course grade will be based on two midterm exams, the final exam, and section performance. Details will be provided at the first lecture.

**Homework:**There will be weekly homework assignments.

**Comments:**At the first lecture, a lecture schedule, exam dates, and a schedule of homework assignments will be provided. My lectures tend to be slow moving. They cannot possible cover all of the course material; that would be true even if I spoke much more quickly than I do. So expect to pick up a lot by reading the textbook. Needless to say, if you attend lecture, it would be best to look beforehand at the relevant parts of the textbook to get at least a rough idea of the topics that will be discussed.

Before enrolling in the course, check the final exam date to make sure you do not have a conflict. There will be no make-up exams, neither final nor midterms.

Total: 500 points possible.

**Homework:**Due

**every Tuesday**in your TA section. You must give a detailed solution for each problem - the correct answer is not sufficient.

**Late homework is not accepted**by the TA's under any circumstances. To allow for sickness, we delete the single worst homework set from your record and add up the rest for a total possible of 120 points. There will be

*three quizzes*(given in section) that count, for a total of 30 points. Quizzes will vary with the TA section. The first assignment is due in your TA section on Tuesday, September 7.

**Comments:**

The

*first midterm*will be in class on Monday, October 4.

The

*second midterm*will be on Wednesday, November 3.

The

*third midterm*will be on Wednesday, December 1.

The

*Final Exam*will be on Monday, December 20.

*Make sure you can make the final exam -*

**check the schedule now**

*to see that it is acceptable to you. It is not possible to have make-up exams.*

**Incompletes**. Official University policy states that an Incomplete can be given only for valid medical excuses with a doctor's certificate, and only if at the point the grade is given the student has a passing grade (C or better). If you are behind in the course, Incomplete is not an option!

**Math 55 - Section 1 - Discrete Mathematics**

**Instructor:**George M. Bergman

**Lectures:**MWF 3:00-4:00pm, Room 10 Evans

**Course Control Number:**54828

**Office:**865 Evans, e-mail: gbergman [at] math [dot] berkeley [dot] edu

**Office Hours:**Tu 10:30-11:30am, W 4:15-5:15pm, F 10:30-11:30am

**Prerequisites:**Math 1A-1B, or consent of the instructor

**Required Text:**Kenneth H. Rosen,

*Discrete Mathematics and its Applications*, 5th edition, McGraw-Hill

**Syllabus:**We will cover Chapters 1-5 and 7 in Rosen. We'll also use some notes prepared by a previous instructor (available online both in pdf and in postscript format) to supplement Chapter 5.

**Grading:**Grades will be based on two Midterms (15% + 20%), a Final (35%), and weekly Quizzes in Section (30%). The Department cannot at present afford graders for homework in lower-division courses, but I will assign problems for you to do, the solutions will be discussed in section, and section Quizzes will be based largely on them.

**Homework:**Weekly

**Comments:**Math 1A-1B and (if you've had them) 53 and 54 have all been about smooth functions of one or more real variables. This course is about some very different topics. The main reason 1A-1B is a prerequisite is to be sure students have enough familiarity with mathematical thinking; it also means that I will be free to occasionally make connections with topics from that sequence. But if you haven't had it and want to take this course, come see me and we will discuss whether you are ready.

**Prerequisites:**Math 53 and 54

**Required Text:**Charles Pugh,

*Real Mathematical Analysis*, Springer-Verlag, 2002

**Recommended Reading:**

**Syllabus:**Review of elementary set theory, countable and uncountable sets, the system of real numbers and its basic properties, convergence, continuity, differentiation, integration, Euclidean spaces, metric spaces, compactness, connectedness.

**Course Webpage:**http://www.math.berkeley.edu/~sarason/Class_Webpages/Fall_2004/Math104_S1.html

**Grading:**The course grade will be based on two midterm exams, the final exam, and homework. Details will be provided at the first class meeting. All exams will be open book.

**Homework:**Homework will be assigned weekly and will be carefully graded.

**Comments:**The course has two basic goals. One is to present a rigorous development of the fundamental ideas underlying calculus (and much of the rest of mathematics). The other is to foster students in acquiring (or coerce them into acquiring) skill in mathematical reasoning and in constructing coherent, rigorous mathematical proofs.

The lectures will discuss the basic ideas, but students can expect to have to pick up much on their own from the textbook.

Many students find Math 104 difficult. Unless you aced lower-division mathematics, and perhaps even if you did, Math 104 is probably not a wise choice as a first upper-division math course. Lower-division math involves a heavy dose of symbol manipulation. Math 104 is concerned with the ideas that justify the symbolism.

I would recommend at least a complete course in single-variable calculus, covering limits, derivatives, integrals, techniques of integration, sequences and series, and Taylor's theorem. This prerequisite course may have (usually will have) emphasized computation over formal definitions and proofs. The present course will cover essentially the same topics, but now the emphasis will shift to the rigorous definitions and proofs.**Required Text:** K. A. Ross, *Elementary Analysis: The Theory of Calculus*, Springer-Verlag ($35).**Recommended Reading:** W. Rudin, *Principles of Mathematical Analysis*, McGraw-Hill ($140), is the classic text on this material.**Syllabus:** (1) basic concepts of logic, set theory, real numbers; (2) sequences; (3) continuity; (4) sequences and series of functions; (5) differentiation; (6) integration; (7) metric spaces and basic topology. We will aim to cover most of the Ross text with some supplemental material on metric spaces taken from another text I have yet to select (such as M. Protter, "Basic Elements of Real Analysis.") The focus of this course, aside from the specific material covered, is learning to read and write proofs.**Course Webpage:** I will set up a course webpage when I arrive later this summer. It will have links to homework assignments, exams, solutions for exams, and up-to-date grades.**Grading:** 25% Quizzes/Homework, 20% Midterm I, 20% Midterm II, 35% Final Exam.**Homework:** Assigned and collected weekly. You are encouraged to form study groups to toss around ideas, but each student is required to submit a write-up of the solutions in his/her own words. Problems will be selected from the Ross text or posted on the course web site. Lowest homework score is dropped.**Comments:** I am a newly hired Morrey Jr. Asst.

(Math 74 also recommended for students not familiar with proofs.)**Required Text:** S. H. Friedberg, A. J. Insel and L. E. Spence, *Linear Algebra*, 4th edition**Syllabus:** In this class we take a second look at linear algebra, something you have seen in Math 54. The basic issues are the same: solving linear equations, doing least square problems, finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix, thinking of a matrix as a linear map between vector spaces, writing matrices in a more revealing form by choosing a basis appropriately, etc.

We will revisit all these items form a more general viewpoint than that of Math 54, and proofs will play an important part in this class. There are TWO reasons for looking anew at these basic tasks: with the advent of the computer age there has been a revival in the search for ways of performing these basic tasks with faster and more accurate algorithms. Think of applications like signal processing, medical imaging, Pixar animation, etc. The second reason is equaly important: the ability to do abstract reasoning gives a beautiful and powerful tool not only to organize the material you already know but also to make new discoveries. If you are going to be more than just a user of "black boxes" of software (which I also love to use) you have to develop your own mental tools to judge the merit and quality of these packages.*Practical advice*: start doing the homework as soon as possible. Learn to walk around with these problems in your head, sometimes you will wake up with some new idea on how to solve them. Try to put together a group of two or three of you that meets regularly to discuss the material in the class; try to explain the material to each other: there is a chance that you will discover that you do not really understand it yourself. This is the first step in learning and you should repeat this till you all understand what is going on. Ask questions, propose counterexamples, challenge each other....**Grading:** The grade will be based on your homework (25%), two midterms (20% and 20%) and a final (35%).**Homework:** There will be a weekly homework assignment, with problems from the book.

**Course Control Number:**55038

**Office:**985 Evans, e-mail: emgomez [at] math [dot] berkeley [dot] edu

**Office Hours:**To be decided in class. Most likely they will be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons/evenings (to accomodate teachers), and also by appointment.

**Prerequisites:**Interest in math education/teaching. Willingness to work in groups. At least one upper-level math class.

**Required Text:**Usiskin, Peressini, Marchisotto and Stanley,

*Mathematics for High School Teachers (an Advanced Perspective)*, Prentice Hall, 2003. ISBN: 0-13-044941-5

**Recommended Reading:**Familiarity with the high school curriculum, as well as with some high school texts, is desired but not necessary. Another recommendation is to read articles from "Mathematics Teacher", a journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

**Syllabus:**We will cover topics such as number systems (integers, rationals, reals, complex), equations, functions, congruence and similarity, area and volume, axioms, trigonometry. Clarity and proof will be emphasized. Topics will pertain to the high school curriculum, but we will give them a depth far beyond that which high schools students see at school.

**Grading:**Based on weekly homework and reading assignments, a midterm take-home exam, and presentation of a semester project.

**Homework:**Reading and exercises will be assigned and collected weekly.

**Comments:**This course is for upper-level students interested in teaching High School mathematics, for grad students in the School of Education, and for High School teachers (who can register through UC Extension). It emphazises problem solving and group work, so that class participation is important. It MUST be taken for 4 units, unless there are very good reasons why that cannot be done.

**Prerequisites:**Ideally

- Upper division probability - familiarity with calculations using random variables.
- Upper division analysis, e.g. uniform convergence of functions, basics of complex numbers. Basic properties of metric spaces helpful.

**Required Text:**R. Durrett,

*Probability: Theory and Examples*is the required text, and the single most relevant text for the whole year's course. Quite a few of the homework problems are from there. The new 3rd edition corrects typos from the 2nd edition; either will be OK to use. The style is deliberately concise.

**Recommended Reading:**P. Billingsley,

*Probability and Measure (3rd Edition)*

Chapters 1-30 contain a more careful and detailed treatment of the topics of this semester, in particular the measure-theory background. Recommended for students who have not done measure theory.

K.L. Chung,

*A Course in Probability Theory*covers many of the topics of 205A: more leisurely than Durrett and more focused than Billingsley.

There are many other books at roughly the same ``first year graduate" level. Here are my personal comments on some.

Y.S. Chow and H. Teicher,

*Probability Theory*. Uninspired exposition, but has useful variations on technical topics such as inequalities for sums and for martingales.

R.M. Dudley,

*Real Analysis and Probability*. Best account of the functional analysis and metric space background relevant for research in theoretical probability.

B. Fristedt and L. Gray,

*A Modern Approach to Probability Theory*. 700 pages allow coverage of broad range of topics in probability and stochastic processes.

L. Breiman,

*Probability*. Classical; concise and broad coverage.

There are some lecture notes for Jim Pitman's Fall 2002 STAT 205A which covers more ground than my course will!

**Syllabus:**This is the first half of a year course in mathematical probability at the measure-theoretic level. It is designed for students whose ultimate research will involve rigorous proofs in mathematical probability. It is aimed at Ph.D. students in the Statistics and Mathematics Depts, but is also taken by Ph.D. students in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Business and Economics who expect their thesis work to involve probability.

**Note**

There is a parallel first year graduate course in probability theory, STAT 204 taught by Evans, which does not have a measure theory prerequisite.

In brief, the course will cover

- Sketch of pure measure theory (not responsible for proofs)
- Measure-theoretic formulation of probability theory
- Classical theory of sums of independent random variables: laws of large numbers
- Technical topics relating to proofs of above: notions of convergence, a.s. convergence techniques
- Conditional distributions, conditional expectation
- Discrete time martingales
- Introduction to Brownian motion

**Course Webpage:**http://www.stat.berkeley.edu/users/aldous/205A/index.html

*Algebraic number Theory*

**Recommended Reading:**TBA

**Syllabus:**This will be a rigorous introduction to algebraic number theory. Topics include algebraic number fields, orders, etale algebras, valuations and localizations, ramification, units and class-groups, quadratic forms, function field analogues, quaternion algebras and central simple algebras. Two lectures per week will cover "standard" material, and one lecture per week will be a "fun" topic like "RSA cryptography", and "Why primes are like knots", and "The topograph of a quadratic form". Students are expected to read 10-15 pages per week of the textbook as well.

**Course Webpge:**TBA

**Grading:**Grades will be based on bi-weekly problem sets, and a final exam.

**Homework:**Homework assignments will be available on the web.

**Office Hours:**TuTh 1:30-3:00

**Prerequisites:**

**Required Text:**Robin Hartshorne,

*Algebraic Geometry*, Springer

**Recommended Reading:**

**Syllabus:**This is a first course in algebraic geometry. I do not presuppose any geometry, but I will make use of results from commutative algebra as needed. The most important topics you need to know are Hilbert's Nullstellensatz, dimension theory for local rings, integral closure, and exact sequences of modules. For a more detailed list see "Results from Algebra" on pp. 470-471 of the text. References for commutative algebra are Atiyah and Macdonald; Eisenbud; or Matsumura's "Commutative ring theory".

I expect to cover most of Chapters I and II of the text in the Fall semester.

This course will be followed in Spring '05 by a Math 274 "topics" course on deformation theory in algebraic geometry.

**Syllabus:**In this course, we'll first introduce vector bundles and their characterstic classes, and use them to get cobordism invariants of manifolds. We'll apply the Thom-Pontrjagin construction to translate the question of computing the cobordism ring into a problem in stable homotopy. We'll solve this problem in the nonoriented case and show how to get various (generalized) homology theories out of cobordism groups. The relation to ordinary homology and K-theory will be explained via the signature and other genera.

This course will be continued as a topics course in the Spring 2005, where we'll study one particularly important cohomology theory in full detail: elliptic cohomology.

*Vertex Algebras and Algebraic Curves*, Second Edition, AMS 2004.

**Recommended Reading:**

**Syllabus:**We will discuss the geometric Langlands correspondence over the field of complex numbers.

The local correspondence amounts to a "spectral decomposition" of the categories of smooth representations of an affine Kac-Moody algebra with respect to the local systems of the Langlands dual group over the punctured disc. In order to construct it, we will introduce a certain class of representations caled Wakimoto modules and describe the center of the completed enveloping algebra of an affine Kac-Moody algebra at the critical level.

Representations of affine Kac-Moody algebras may then be used to construct the global Langlands correspondence, which associates to local systems defined over a smooth projective curve X the so-called Hecke eigensheaves on the moduli space of G-bundles on X. We will consider explicit examples of this correspondence, such as the Gaudin integrable system, which arises in the Langlands correspondence in genus zero.

The lectures will be augmented by a seminar that will meet on Fridays after the lectures, in which we will discuss the classical Langlands correspondence (so as to give some motivation to the topics discussed in the course) and other related material.

**Office Hours:**TBA

**Prerequisites:**The class is suitable for graduate students who have a background in discrete applied mathematics, preferrably with experience in algebra and/or combinatorics. Familiarity with basic biology will be helpful, but is neither necessary nor sufficient for taking the course.

**Required Text:**

**Recommended Reading:**

**Syllabus:**A graphical model is a family of joint probability distributions for a collection of random variables that factors according to a graph. Graphical models have proved to be extremely useful for problems in computational biology, because they provide useful and versatile probabilistic frameworks for a wide range of problems, and at the same time are suitably structured for efficient inference. For example, in biological sequence analysis, specialized directed graphical models with discrete random variables are used for applications ranging from annotation and alignment to phylogeny reconstruction.

Discrete graphical models are instances of statistical models that can be characterized by polynomials in the joint probabilities. The emerging and active field of algebraic statistics offers algorithms for this polynomial representation, and is a fertile area for the application of ideas from commutative algebra and algebraic geometry.

We will focus on the rich interaction between the theory of algebraic statistics, and the motivating application of computational biology. Several recent papers have demonstrated that algebraic statistics can be applied to developing practical algorithms for biological applications, and conversely that computational biology questions motivate interesting research directions in the theory of algebraic statistics. After a brief primer in algebra and biology, we will survey some of this current literature. Students will be encouraged to select topics for study and to participate in class discussions.
