Aktosun, Fall 2017, Math 5392

Instructor: Tuncay Aktosun, PKH 461, (817) 272-1545, aktosun@uta.edu

Course: Selected Topics in Mathematics: Mathematical Analysis, Math 5392, Section 002, Course number 91191

Office Hours: 3:50-4:50 pm, Monday and Wednesday

Classroom: PKH 485

Classtime: 2:30-3:50 pm, Monday and Wednesday

Textbook: No textbook will be used; some reading materials will be provided.

Coverage: We will cover some topics in Linear Algebra and Analysis with the goal of seeing Linear Algebra/Analysis/Differential Equations from a unified viewpoint as a part of Linear Functional Analysis. We will try to learn mathematics independently of any particular textbook by learning the concepts based on basic principles and intuition.

Grading: Letter grades will be assigned based on class participation.

Exams: No exams will be given.

Prerequisites: Consent of the instructor (basic undergraduate mathematical training in mathematics or physics or engineering should be sufficient).
