Math 336, Accelerated (Honors) Advanced Calculus, Spring, 2020

This is the Math 336 homepage. As you know, this quarter the class will be conducted remotely. It will be an experiment and will be modified day-to-day. This website has information that will be valuable even for a remote class. I will post items that I think will help to learn commplex analysis. 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 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.
