There will be no official textbook(s). We will use material from
and some class notes, including
Algebra, Topology, Differential Calculus, and Optimization Theory (manuscript)
Fundamentals of Linear Algebra and Optimization; Some Notes
Notes on Differential Geometry and Lie Groups
Latex Tutorial (Especially Section 11):
A Word of Advice :
Expect to be held to high standards, and conversely!
In addition to transparencies, we will distribute
lecture notes. Please, read the course notes regularly, and
start working early on the problems sets. They will be hard!
Take pride in your work. Be clear, rigorous, neat, and concise.
Preferably, use a good text processor, such as LATEX, to
write up your solutions.
It is forbidden to use solutions of problems posted on the internet.
If you use resources other than the textbook (or the recommended textbooks)
or the class notes, you must cite these references.
I assume that you are all responsible adults.
Copying old solutions verbatim or blatantly
isomorphic solutions are easily detectable.
DO NOT copy solutions from old solution
sheets, from books, from solutions posted on the internet, or from friend!
Either credit will be split among the perpetrators, or worse!
