Math 336, Accelerated (Honors) Advanced Calculus, Spring, 2016

This is the Math 336 homepage. Consult it from time to time to find useful information for the course. I will include links to the syllabus and other course information. There are links to papers that you might want to use for your term report. I will add links throughout the quarter. American Mathematical Monthly and Mathematics Magazine can be accessed in the University of Washington electronic journals. The Mathematical Intelligencer is available in the Mathematics Research Library. The Notices of the American Mathematical Society also has expository articles.

The following are links to current course information.

  1. The Team
  2. Term papers
  3. Sample problems for the final exam.
  4. Convergence of infinite products.
  5. Sample problems for the second midterm.
  6. Newton's method.
  7. Slightly improved version of the maximum principle.
  8. Sample problems for the first midterm.
  9. Matt Jamin found this link to errata for Gamelin's text.
  10. A little note on the Poisson integral formula.
  11. Pseudo Math and Finance. Possible topic for a term paper.
  12. A good visual treatment of complex analysis Geometry of Harmonic Functions by Tristram Needham, Magazine, April, 1994.
  13. Fundamental theorem of algebra
  14. A quote of Henri Poincare: "Mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things. Poetry is the art of giving different names to the same thing."
  15. Newman's Short Proof of the Prime Number Theorem.
  16. Lindelof maximum principle.
  17. Mean value property characterizes harmonic functions.

  31. Here's a link to Don Marshall's Math 534 homepage. He has written a set of notes and also posted problems and links to some software for visualizing complex functions. The prerequisites for the graduate course are exactly what you already know. There is a lot of overlap between 336 and parts of 534 and 535. Here's a link to Don's 535 homepage.
  32. The Mathematics Research Library has purchased all of Springer's e-books published since 2005. Go to the link Springer e-books to see what is there. Here are some that are relevant to Math 336: Geometric Function Theory, Complex Analysis, Complex Variables with Applications
  33. Primes is in P.
  34. Primes is in P: A Breakthrough for "Everyman"
  35. A beautiful reference for the Jordan curve theorem is in Elements of the Topology of plane sets of points by M.H.A. Newman.
  36. Papers by Andrew Oldyzko on the Riemann Zeta Function.
  37. Fast Fourier Methods in Computational Complex Analysis by Peter Henrici.
  38. A reference for Euclidean geometry is Geometry: Euclid and Beyond by Robin Hartshorne.
  39. Cantor and Sierpinski, Julia and Fatou: Complex Topology Meets Complex Dynamics
  40. The Riemann Hypothesis
