So, this Spring term, I’ll be finding the zeros of in PMATH 740 (analytic number theory), alongside CO 342 (graph theory 1) and CS 341 (algorithms 1). 3 courses seems a bit light, but I think it’ll be nice since 740 will probably be demanding, and I’ll also be working on a few other things on the side as well. One of those things is a self-study of differential geometry, to prepare for PMATH 763 (Lie groups), since I will have to override the PMATH 365 prerequisite. I’ll also be typesetting Stephen New’s PMATH 352 this term (I couldn’t resist — as an excuse, I’ll blame it on the fact that my own complex analysis notes are subpar and I need to review the material, due to 740). Aside from that I’m contemplating some simple musical endeavours, time permitting. Learning math is a pleasure, but you know, I’d rather not consume it as fast food.
I hope Winter went great for everyone, and I’ll see you soon! Cheers.
