useful information for the course. I will include links to the syllabus and
other course information.
The following are links to current course information.

of them, but most are not lengthy.
 My two favorite references on trigonometric series: A Treatise on Trigonometric Series by Nina Bari and Trigonometric Series by Antoni Zygmund.
 How to compute the Laplace transform of
\( \frac{\sin x }{x}\).

 Integrability of uniform limit of Riemann integrable functions.
 In 1943 Einstein answered a little girl who had difficulties in school with mathematics.
"Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.
Best regards
Professor Albert Einstein."
 There is no perfect test for
convergence. (Taken from Knopp.)
 Sample problems for the first midterm.
 Will on quotient spaces and differential forms.
 Quote of Galileo: "Philosophy is written in this grand book, which stands continually open before our eyes (I say the 'Universe'), but can not be understood without first learning to comprehend the language and know the characters as it is written. It is written in mathematical language, and its characters are triangles, circles and other geometric figures, without which it is impossible to humanly understand a word; without these one is wandering in a dark labyrinth."
 Will's office hours are 1:302:30 on Tuesday and 3:304:30 on Thursday.

of power series and a similar theorem for Laplace transforms.

 You might find this note on
hyperbolic functions useful.

 The Baire category theorem and related
ideas. This document will resemble a blog and will evolve over time. The
Baire category theorem has an elementary proof but it has many sophisticated
consequenses.
 The best book on infinite series is Theory and Application of Infinite Series by Konrad Knopp.
 G.H. Hardy's book Orders of Infinity might answer some
of your questions about comparitive growth of terms in a series.
 Rearranging alternating harmonic series
 A Primer of Real Functions by Ralph Boas is one of my favorite
books on introductory analysis. I read it as an undergrad.
 Riemann's rearrangement theorem
 I'd like to recommend a book that you can download for free:
Elementary Real Analysis by Thomson, Bruckner, and Bruckner. You
might like to take a look at the other books on their website
Classical Real Anallysis.

Suppose
\(
\sum c_n e^{inx}
\)
converges for all x to a function f that is
Riemann integrable (or just Lebesgue integrable). Then the \(c_n\) are
the
Fourier coefficients of f (and hence the series is a Fourier series). This is
a theorem of du Bois Reymond and de la Valee Poussin.
 The probability integral.

NY: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1964.
 Arzela's theorem on dominated
convergence.
 Some stuff on series.
 A hint for problem 14 in section 6.4. Prove that for small \(x\)
\[
\frac{1}{x} \log(1+x) = 1  \frac{x}{2} + \frac{x^2}{3} + \dots,
\]
and hence that
\[
(1+x)^{\frac{1}{x}} = e(1\frac{x}{2} +\frac{7}{12}x^2 +\dots).
\]
Hence prove that
\[
\frac{e(1+\frac{1}{n})^n}{1/n} \to \frac{e}{2} \text{ as } n\to \infty.
\]

\[
u(x) = \int \frac{\rho (x+y)}{y}dy\]
solves
\[\nabla ^2 u(x) =  4 \pi \rho(x)
\]

 Please volunteer to help me with Mathday. There will be
1300 high school students on campus and I will need at least 75 volunteers
to help escort then around and do other routine duties that require no
mathematical knowledge. Here is a link to my mathday website. Mathday is Monday, March 21,
2016  the Monday of Spring Break.

 Binomial series.
 A sentence from a letter by C. G. J. Jacobi to
A. von Humboldt,
If Gauss says he has proved something,
it seems very probable to me; if Cauchy
says so, it is about as likely as not; if
Dirichlet says so, it is certain.
 Infinite sums, some notes on summing
possible infinite sets of numbers.
 A simple discussion of the fundamental solution of a constant coefficient linear differential equation.
 A primer on differential equations.

improper integrals.

reprint.
 Change of variables
formula for spherical coordinates.
 Spherical Coordinates
 Here's a proof of the CauchyBinet formula, which has a
nice application to give a formula for the measure of a
parameterized manifold in R^{n}.

 I will not cover Raabe's test and I will not ask you to
work any problems using it.
 Starter books on manifolds and Stokes's theorem: Loomis
and Sternberg, Advanced Calculus; Hubbard and Hubbard,
Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Differential Forms;

 There is an error in the answer to problem 2b in
section 5.8. The answer should be (xz^{2}/2,
xyzz^{2}/2x^{2}/2, 0)+grad(f)
 For problem number 3 in section 5.8, assume that
Laplacian(f)=div(H) has a solution. You don't need to justify this.
 The 1854 Smith Prize Exam at Cambridge University that Stokes
wrote can be found in the Michigan online
library. The Smith Exams are in the last volume and this
exam is on page 320. Apparently William Thomson (Lord Kelvin)
stated the result to Stokes in a letter in 1850. James
Clerk Maxwell won the Smith Prize in 1854 and Gabriel Stokes
himself won it in 1841 and Thomson in 1845. Other winners are
Arthur Cayley (1842),
G.H. Hardy (1901), Arthur Eddington (1907), Alan Turing
(1936). A history of the prize.
