Mark Syd Bennett

Hi, my name is Mark.
I am a 4th year PhD Mathematics student at the University of Washington.

I am currently interested in the computation of finite-genus solutions to the Kadomtsev - Petviashvili (KP) equation. Specifically KPII. My advisor is Bernard Deconinck.


This quarter I am a teaching assitant for Professor Zhang.


Due to a flight cancellation, Professor Zhang is not able to come back to Seattle before Monday, Jan. 3. So the first lecture on Jan. 3 is now canceled. Our first (online) lecture will be given and uploaded to canvas on Wednesday, Jan. 5.

As per the UW President's directive, Math 126 will be online for the first week of the quarter and in-person starting from week 2.

HW is due every Tuesday and Thursday at 11pm. It's a good idea to work on your homework early (a few days before the deadline). To access and submit your homework, please check the website Homework.

Math Study Center (MSC) is running regular MSC hours: M-Th 9:30 AM to 7:30 PM, Friday 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM, and Sunday 2-6 PM. MSC provides the best tutoring service for calculus students. Everyone should try it.

CLUE is a multidisciplinary, late-night, and free study center. They offer one-on-one drop-in tutoring sessions from 7:00pm to 11:00pm Sunday through Thursday. No appointment is necessary as we are drop-in only starting from week 2. Additional information about all CLUE offers is available here: CLUE. You should try it if you have homework questions during late evening.
