MTH 248 - Intermediate Topics in Mathematics

Course Units: 1.0
(Not Offered this Academic Year) An exploration into topics chosen from different areas of pure mathematics, this course is divided into three sequential units, each taught by a different instructor. The topics are 1) convex geometry (including convex sets, linear and affine spans, simplices, and applications to Nash’s Bargaining Theorem in Game Theory); 2) continued fractions and their use in number theory, such as in solving linear Dophantine equations and in finding rational approximations to real numbers; 3) introduction to analysis (sequences, series, convergence tests, complex series, and Euler’s formula). Students will receive a single grade for the entire course. Prerequisite(s): Take MTH 199  or permission from the Chair. Note: Not normally open to students who have completed MTH 257, or MTH 336   by the end of the term, except by permission of the math department chairperson.
